The film concerns the conflict a young couple faces because of their different attitudes toward sex. At the point of maximum tension, the film ends and a narrator appears and poses questions to elicit a discussion of feelings, attitudes, and values. The publisher indicates that this film is appropriate for senior high students,...

Made for carpet salesmen, madcap Jonathan Winters shills Caprolan acrylic carpeting with a variety of characters. Some of the bits work and others fall flat - like another internal sales film that audiences hate (but we love) Freeze-In. The color is bad on the film. We digitized and uploaded this film from the A/V Geeks Archives. Email us at footage@avgeeks.com if you have questions about the footage and are interested in using it in your project.

Father James Keller and actor Fred MacMurray (Double Indemnity, Absent-Minded Professor) point out how atomic energy can be a God-given blessing instead of a man-made curse if used in such fields as industry, agriculture and medicine. This film was an introduction to the Catholic civic organization's other atomic-themed films - Atomic Energy As A Force For Good and From Star to Star – which also starred notable celebrities.

A large assortment of guest stars (Jack Benny, Rochester, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, William Holden, Anne Blythe, Loretta Young) gather in Benny's house to discuss how helping your neighbor can stop that one percent of the Communist element that hoped to “tear the heart out of the Declaration of Independence”. The charismatic Father James Keller founded the Catholic civic group, the Christophers and was quite media savvy in his day using celebrities to spread the Christophers message in film,...
