The US Navy Presents “How to Succeed with Brunettes”


In the late 1960s, the US Navy created this educational film that teaches a young sailor the “dos and don’ts” on dating. It seems weird, but I don’t think these films are a bad idea, if the military is trying to have their recruits act specific ways at all times. What I wonder is if people took these lessons to heart and if you were a women, who happened to date two sailors, would you be totally freaked out when they did the exact same things on your dates?

Ready gentlemen…
