Teenage Years: Act Your Age! (2-DVD Set)

Teenage Years: Act Your Age (2-DVD Set)

For nearly a decade, young people channeled their energy into the war effort and preparing to serve overseas. But with changing social times came increased new social problems. Teens no longer knew their place in the world and parents had to react!

The result was a collection of educational films made by the government and school systems to try to show the new realties of teen life. This DVD portrays the complex lives of teenagers in the post-war era.

Now, thanks to DVD technology, we have been able to restore and preserve these celluloid masterpieces of history!

Inside you will find great short films shot by some of the best production teams of the era. Here is what you will see on this incredible DVD:

How Do You Do?
This film is a document from the postwar "behavior offensive," aimed at of all things, offensive behaviour. The main point of the film is how to teach kids to be kids again after experiencing premature adulthood during World War II.

How Do You Do?

Law and Social Controls
Curfews are always a point of contention between teenagers and adults. Parents want their children home early before they face the dangers of the night. Teens always want to be out a little bit later. This film uses the story of teens trying to extend the hours of their “Teen Canteen” as a vehicle for explaining customs, moral codes, and laws.

Law and Social Controls

Friendship Begins At Home
Our next film examines the nature of friendship and family and how it affects the teen world as they strain to become as adult as they feel. This film depicts how a strong family group helps teenagers learn to form strong friendships and become active members of their community.

Friendship Begins At Home

How to Keep a Job
One of the most painful parts of the path to adulthood is learning how to make money for yourself and stop being dependant on your parents for the cash you need to survive. In that vein this film teaches teenagers everything they need to know to get and keep their first jobs. They learn how to get along with co-workers, maintain a positive attitude, and embrace responsibility.

How to Keep a Job

Social Courtesy
When you are a baby, you can do anything and people will accept you. When you become an adult, however, you are expected to honor basic customs and courtesies. This educational clip attempts to teach teenagers the social mores that will help them be accepted as adults.

Social Courtesy

The Procrastinator
This film gives a practical example to show how planning and organizing is helpful in life. When Jean becomes chairman of the social committee, she habitually fails to plan and use time wisely in carrying out her responsibilities. It starts to hurt her reputation and actually makes her work harder! Throughout the film, Jean discovers that by becoming more organized, she can actually get more done while putting in less time and effort.

Gossip
Gossip! These days we can’t get enough of it. From Star Magazine to entertainment news, gossip seems to be everywhere. Back in the 1950s, however, gossip was seen as a dangerous influence on America’s youth. This clip tries to teach teens not to gossip about each other – apparently a lesson that never really sank in!

Mind Your Manners
Do you know what fork should be used for salad and which one should be used for your main meal? How about the best way to shake hands or why you need to keep your elbows off the table? None of us are born with great manners – they have to be taught to us. That is the purpose of this piece – to show teens how to mind their manners and why it is an important part of growing up.

Mind Your Manners

Understanding Others
What’s more important to you – how rich or good looking someone is – or the type of person they are? When we are younger, it can be easy to judge people by very superficial values. This film shows teens that what is in a person’s heart is more important than how much money they have or how popular they are.

Coffee House Rendezvous
In the suburbs of the 1950s, there was not a lot for teens to do. Boredom often set in, which could lead to children getting into mischief. As an antidote, churches and community organizations created coffee houses, where teens could come together and have a great time. Our final clip documents the coffee house culture and how it effects the social scene.
