Social Courtesy

Coronet Instructional Films

Presents information on specific social graces & shows how to make them a natural part of daily activities. Sour-puss Bill is invited to a "hard times" party w/ girlfriend Carol - opens w/ hims talking into bedroom mirror I don t have any fun at parties, kids just aren t friendly - believes social courtesy is "old fashioned" - interactive narrator cuts in, suggests it s Bill s fault. Bill takes the narrator in stride, as he does being teleported through space and backward in time (repeatedly) - first to Carol s house.

05:13:50 Bill rude to Carol - don t take all night . "Let's take a picture of this situation," the narrator says as strobe flashes from behind camera & scene transformed into a photo on a wall in the next scene, "you discourage others when they want to be'd better back up and start all over again. Maybe you'd better try to be more FRIENDLY this time."

05:15:20 Surreal party scenes - signs on wall inc. Hobo Jungle & Bum's Rest (over the couch) - Bill rude in various ways, scenes repeated as before w/ better behaviour. Narrator scolds, "You're supposed to rise when an adult speaks to you; everybody knows that" - "Come on, Bill. Sit up! That's a chair, not a bed" etc.

05:18:39 Bill beckons the invisible narrator closer so he can discuss things in private, camera dollies in while other teens at party remain oblivious. Teens then sing She ll be Comin Round the Mountain whilst square dancing - Bill joins in.

05:19:55 Carol, suddenly aware that Bill is having a solo conversation, asks "Are you talking to yourself?" Bill knocks over girl s plate of food & gets her some more. "Learn from watching others," narrator concludes, "You can even get a book on courtesy from the library. Be friendly. Thoughtful. YOU'LL get along!" It works; the mum chaperone whispers "Isn't that the boy who used to be so rude?" & Bill is accorded the ultimate symbol of Fifties' conformist success; he's invited to another party. "Those changes made a big difference, didn't they!" he exclaims in wonder, "Social courtesy DOES pay! Thanks!!!"

Young America Films / Centron for McGraw-Hill - Discussion Problems in Group Living series

INT high school classroom - popular guy Bob & his clique think he has Editorship of school paper in the bag & that poor, quiet Ben from wrong side of the tracks has no chance. Bob pretends to be magnanimous but we hear his snobbish inner thoughts - thinks Ben s shabby clothes are weird , his father worked just long enough to buy a bottle , his mum who cleaned for them was a lousy worker , & his family just stupid, ignorant people . Bob tells his sycophantic, weird-looking friends you think he d feel out of place around people like us ! Stern-looking teacher Miss Alton arrives at Press Club meeting - Bob looks around and thinks smugly the job is his but teacher announces that Ben will be Editor - CU Bob looking horrified & cue more mean-spirited thoughts. Narration starts while Ben addresses meeting - admonishes Bob for his judgmental attitude.

13:13:10 Above scene repeated from Ben s viewpoint - wonders if popular clique are laughing at him, decides not to go over to them - another kid tells him he thinks Ben will get the Editorship - teacher makes announcement & Ben can t believe he got it - makes acceptance speech I m open to suggestions . VO suggests Ben may not give the popular clique enough basis for understanding .

13:16:28 Scene repeated again from teacher s point of view - thinks they re not going to like Ben Curtis as their new Editor but justifies her choice to herself based on his ability - he s a courageous boy - wishes he would let other kids get to know him as she knows him - wonders are they too set against you because you re different? VO There are many people like Ben, people with problems, people we reject and ignore because we don t understand why they act as they do, and because they re different from our idea of friends - shots of soft-spoken & shy kids being pushed around - pretty girl looks at ugly girl w/ pity [she looks the same but with glasses!] - those who are physically attractive cannot always appreciate the loneliness of those who are not . VO asks what Ben, Bob & teacher could do to improve situation - What do you think?

[Filmed Lecture on Communism vs Capitalism by US Government Employee, ca 1960s] Pt. 2 of 2

Continued... ...I think you see that this is one of their most appealing slogans: We can help you catch up w/ history fast...many of my friends in other countries have said to me...looks pretty logical to me. But you know when you talk about this to the average person in the United States, I think his reaction is words, words, words; theory, theory, theory. We have today in the United States, what the Communists are promising in the distant future, in the most advanced Communist countries.

04:30:30 Vetter s view: ...after living in the Soviet Union in 1959, is that developed Free World countries have achieved the kind of economic & social justice Marx was calling for w/ real justification 100 years ago. We have a higher standard of performance & justice for our masses of people...

04:31:03 I love very much, Pakistan, these people have seen there is a change & they are looking for a change...there s been a revolution in communication at the village level all over the world & people are demanding a better life; and they say if we can t get it from the Free World we ll get it any place we can, and sometimes this type of explanation has great appeal. Its much like a Salvation religion...

04:32:24 ...does the Free World have a counterpart package...? I think you ll find in the Free World we have many, many packages; not one. But not only do they have their theory, like the Bible or Koran, the same all over the world but they also have done their homework in projecting this...

04:33:00 Let me assume the role of a Soviet & take questions from you the audience & answer as they are being answered all over the world by the Soviets. Does phoney accent presentation of Soviet government official & then both questions & answers

04:34:45 If we are such a peace people why did we intervene in Hungary in 1956...?

04:35:40 What is our Soviet interest in Cuba? re missiles

04:37:10 Berlin Wall & nuclear testing? re French nuclear testing in North Africa.
