Teenage years are the most turbulent ones in a person's life - sandwiched between the innocence of childhood and the harsh realities of adulthood. These are trying years for both the teenagers and their parents. These are years when the teenagers want to step out from under their parent's protective wings and venture out on their own. They are eager to see, feel, taste and experience the world. The parents, on the other hand, continue to see teenagers as their little babies, who are not quite ready for independent decision-making. Seldom is a home with teenagers a peaceful one. The films on this DVD point out that the responsibility for resolving issues rests equally on both the parents and the teenagers.

All the films on this DVD were shot in the 50s and depict how American teenagers and parents were learning the art of mutual understanding. You will find hours of entertaining footage shot by some of the best production teams of the era. Here is what you will find on this incredible DVD:

You and Your Family
This is an early "interactive" film attempting to train teenagers to negotiate, not fight, with their parents. Scenes are enacted dramatically, then summarized, and each viewer is invited to join in the discussion.

Rebellious, conceited, strong-willed, discourteous, disobedient, immature, disillusioned - this is how teenagers have always been branded. Thorough research and skillful handling of sensitive issues are the hallmarks of this DVD, which addresses issues related to teenagers and their parents in the '50s.

An obvious attempt is made not to sound "preachy" in the first film "You and Your Family" in which Mary's family turns down her request to go out for a dance. The film offers several options to teenagers in similar situations and then leaves the choice to them. "Attitudes and Health" is a profound revelation of how attitudes affect health and performance at work and at play. "You and Your Parents" showcases a typical family drama that hasn't changed one bit over the years. This film portrays the turbulent mind of a teenager who runs away from home because his father does not understand him. The patience and understanding shown by Mr. Martin as he deals with Dick's problem is a lesson for parents. "Girls Beware" is a timely reminder to teenage girls of the dangers in trusting strangers. "Age 13", for me, is the best among a set of great clips on this DVD. This film captures the emotional upheaval of a teenager who suddenly loses the only prop in his life - his mother. The boy's rebellious reactions are typical and the enactment of his story is realistic and moving.

The choice of relevant topics, deep insight, thorough research, use of practical examples, fabulous reenactment of situations, and above all excellent preservation of clips that are half a century old all add up to making this DVD an outstanding one.


"All those who were teenagers in the '50's will enjoy watching this great DVD. It is a great reminder of an age when adults were becoming aware of the need to understand teenagers and their attitudes a little better. You will be delighted by the reenactment of situations that may seem very familiar- like running away from home and staying out later than you were allowed to. I personally recall those times as being full of fun and adventure, but not without the occasional disagreement with my father. This DVD did a great job in helping me relive some of those golden moments."

It feels really great to be treated like you are the most important customer. DVDs from this supplier are unique in the choice of topics and the compilation of just the right clips in each set. This thematic approach has made selection of titles easy for me in my research on American history. I think it is only appropriate that I thank the people at"
