Here’s “Beginning to Date,” made by Encyclopedia Britannica Films in 1953, one of those “hygiene films” they showed in health classes in the ‘50s and ‘60s. In this one, a guy named George wants to take a girl named Mildred to the Winter Frolic dance (“finally, a REAL party!”), but he’s never dated before and doesn’t know how, and gee whiz. Fortunately, he has the foresight to solve his problem in the way all problems were solved back then – he asked his swim coach for advice.
