Vintage 50's Drug & Sex Education Film Collection

Price: $14.97     SKU: A1     Qty:

This DVD explores the drug and sex education in the 40' and 50's through a variety of films targeting the youth of the day and educating them about why drugs are bad for you and proper behavior with the opposite sex. Seen from today's more sophisticated times, these films offer a quite simplistic but quite frank look at these topics and the lessons they teach, although seemingly outdated by today' standards, are still quite valuable.
