This early nudie-film, showing two naked women lolling around a rocky landscape, is more quaint than erotic. It's not clear what the original purpose was - it appears to be an excerpt from a longer film, and the peculiar title, in combination with the occasional mild nuzzling of the protagonists, suggests some kind of cautionary film about lesbianism. For our purposes, these gentle images of two naked women (one thin, and the other, well, Rubenesque), crossing a meadow picking flowers, climbing...

Often quite humorous film which purports to speak about cultural mores and their decline; advises us to be wary of pornography which may appear at the local newsstand, malt shop or drugstore. In reaction to perception of substantial growth in the distribution of pornographic material. Homosexuality is considered pornographic per se. Shows frank images often with censoring black bars across them [the bars often obscure very little, simply adding to the air of licentious ness]. "For the sake...

One of the cheapest Santa films ever produced. Shot in Pittsburgh, with blurry home movie footage of Santa parades (on one float he sticks out of a giant chimney, on another he stands in the cockpit of a rocket ship). Santa sits in a vinylite Laz-E-Boy as he orders his elves (kids dressed in leotards) around. Features a trip to a department store and endless footage of a large toy train setup. Grueling.

Though this sex education film concentrates on presenting the anatomy and physiology of human reproduction in sober medical terms, its release kicked off a controversy in many American cities and towns over the legitimacy of sex education in the public schools. The film is narrated from the point of view of an adult who tries to decide how to answer his son's natural questions about sex and reproduction. With excellent diagrams of the reproductive process.
