Are You Popular?

Are You Popular?

A “social guidance” film from post-war America, brought to you by the Prelinger Archives.

I remember these films from school. Everyone I knew laughed at these things. Laughed? “Shrieked” would be a more apt description.

One can only ponder how they might have been an influence on the beat and hippie movement.

    “Why did they invite Carolyn to the table? … Is it because she seems as interested in girls as she is in boys?”

    Yup. The influence on the hippy and beat movements must surely be complete revulsion at the codification of behavior and morals.

    OBEY! CONFORM! WASH BEHIND YOUR EARS!
