Not Without Merit
It's a nice educational film about safety and dealing with a situation that was becoming more and more common at the time. It doesn't go into really scary issues, like someone trying to force his or her way in to the house, but it does give an overall picture of how to act safely while at home alone.

Dated but very good information.
It’s an excellent short film. If it was shown to a group of 10 to 12-year-olds, they would certainly break out in laughter from the dated material. Still, the message is excellent, the delivery is straightforward and they didn’t talk down to kids… At least not much.
