1949--Are you popular? "Girls who park in cars with boys are never really popular," warns this social guidance film. "Find out what really makes a girl well-liked." Dozens of "social guidance" film reels were wheeled into high school classrooms in the post-war period, teaching, among other things, how boys should ask a girl on a date and how girls should behave on one. According to this film, the secret to popularity is to have a "good personality," and to be nice to everyone.
.Note that today's corporate and political leaders of a certain age grew up with social guidance films like these which may well have shaped their attitudes toward women in the workplace in the decades that followed.
