The Childhood Years: Stop The World, I Want To Get Off-2DVDs

The Childhood Years: Stop The World, I Want To Get Off (2-DVD Set)

The Childhood Years: Stop The World, I Want To Get Off (2-DVD Set)

These DVDs offer a rare and fascinating perspective on the troubled lives of American children in the '50s and '60s.

Innovative DVD technology has helped restore and preserve these masterpieces of history.

Are you a parent, a teacher or a councilor? Are you interested in learning about the problems children faced in the '50s and '60s? Are you seeking solutions to problems faced by the children you deal with? These DVDs are a must for all those whose answer is 'Yes'!

Childhood is a carefree, "fun" time for children - at least in theory. Both parents and children are under pressure because of changing times and shifting values. The reaction of a child who is not prepared to deal with the pressures of a broken home is often one of despair. Fortunately, we have the services of councilors and psychiatrists who set things right. The security of a happy and stable family is what a child really needs.

Angry Boy
This film by Alexander Hammid deals with the problems of a pre- adolescent boy, whose mother has her own set of problems - a constantly demeaning mother and a passive husband.

The title of Anthony Newley's musical Stop The World, I Want To Get Off became a catch phrase with people of all ages, including pre-adolescent children. This set of DVDs carries the same title but with a slightly different intent - to highlight the problems of pre-adolescent children. What could better showcase the sad state of affairs the children found themselves in, than a film produced by the renowned Czech filmmaker Alexander Hammid? In this 1950 production "Angry Boy" Hammid is at his best, capturing the emotions of a troubled 10 year old as only he can. The film also tells us why Hammid won so many awards. His deep insight is on display in this film, in which he gets to the root of the boy's problems - a mother with an unhappy past and an equally dismal present. It's amazing to note, that folks in the 50s were not far behind in employing marketing gimmicks that modern day experts take credit for - such as sponsoring a movie with a social theme. You will see this in the delightfully narrated film "Special delivery", which is the story of a boy who is eager to ride the school bus but is too young to do so. "Trust us, we know how to take care of your Kids!" is the message the bus company wishes to convey. I guess they did get this message across quite well.

The Nathan Hofheimer Foundation sponsored film "Activity Group Therapy" is illustrative of the methods used in helping socially maladjusted youngsters cope with their problems. Concealed cameras and microphones give the film a real-life flavor. The 1953 Encyclopedia Britannica production "Don't Be Afraid" is highly recommended. It does a good job of analyzing children's fears and dispelling them as well. All in all, this is a good set of DVDs to have in your collection, even if it is only for the creativity and originality the films possess.


"Most of the video clips in these DVDs are well preserved despite the fact that time takes its toll on everything, including well-intentioned films. This collection of clips is interesting since it uses a lot of dramatized illustrations to drive home a point. Alexander Hammid's portrayal of a troubled family is done with an eye for detail. A lot of sensitivity is on display in the other films as well. It was nice that somebody thought of putting four children's educational films from the '50s and '60s together on DVDs."

Customer's Name : Alex Peterson (Montgomery, Alabama)

"I purchased this DVD set for my school going sons, aged six and nine. The film clips are very good and my sons enjoyed all four stories. They also seem to have understood a little more about handling growing up problems. "Don't Be Afraid" throws a lot of light on how mothers can help children overcome their fear of the dark. I am glad I bought these DVDs."

Customer's Name : Olive Truman (Phoenix, Arizona)
