Friendship Begins at Home shows how strong family relationships are like friendships, and offer the same benefits. Barry, a teen sulking amid his angelic family, decides not to go with his them on their annual 2-week vacation. This disappoints his parents, and his mother warns Barry, "I do wish you'd show as much consideration for the members of your own family as you do for your outside friends!" "Maybe I would," he replies, "if my family'd show me as much consideration as my friends do!" Unfortunately, Barry’s friends don’t come through. Barry is left alone and desolate at home, haunted by the voice of his conscience in his head, and the double-exposure images of his family as they go about their normal activities. The importance of family to postwar American society is brightly illuminated in this wonderful vintage film.

The Fun of Making Friends is a elegantly simple video made for children to watch if they're having trouble meeting new people to play with. At first, Joey plays alone in his home, watching all the while at kids outside having a good time with each other. He asks his mother for help and, through four orderly steps, she tells him how easy it is to gain all the friends a youngster like Joey could ever want! After trying the rules out and succeeding, he finds it is fun to have companions to spend time with. An all-too rigid cultural dynamic of the 1950s is obvious through this vintage film, and it remains extremely interesting to see just how formal the social structures were then.

In these fascinating highlights from the Debating Matters competition semi-finals, sixth form students debate the motion “The baby boomers have squandered their children’s future”. Intergenerational inequality is all the rage and in this timely debate the students are asked tough questions by a panel of judges concerned with content not style. Through convincing and well informed argument, we learn there was no golden age and today’s economic woes are something this generation need to deal with, rather than playing the blame game. Graveney school won the semi-final in opposition to the motion.

How Do You Do is an uproariously dated, and an amateur production to boot, film about social etiquette and good manners. This is a film targeted at postwar children and teens who grew up in stressful homes because of the sacrifices of the war effort. It focuses on good manners and how clean living and good behavior pays huge dividends in self confidence. But the real fun comes from the dreadful acting by Peggy, the main character, who makes an embarrassing mistake while trying to make an introduction between two people. A voice-over narrator helpfully walks her through the proper way to introduce people, helping her in overcoming social anxiety. Mainly, however, the film focuses on the various social blunders that one could make in the 1940s and teaching teens good manners, sometimes through moral lessons. But the corny "important life lessons" make this old movie a giggly good time.

Angry Boy is a beautiful dramatic film about the psychological discord in a 1950’s family and its effects on a young boy. Tommy is an adorable 10 year old, full of youthful potential. But this film is not a cheesy, overly rosy postwar WWII movie, and here’s why: Tommy, loveable and perfect though he is, is a thief. Instead of condemning him, this special film takes the approach of counseling and therapy for not just Tommy, but his entire family. The roots of this family’s pain run deep – and they are slowly unearthed through diligent efforts by the Tommy, his parents, and their therapist. In addition to being an uncharacteristically sensitive and touching movie, Angry Boy was produced with an artistic flair: stirring music, deft direction, and vividly portrayed emotional. This film soars to lofty heights and treats a tender subject with the grace and courage it deserves.

Dick York, who later played Darrin on television’s Bewitched, stars in Shy Guy, a classic Coronet instructional film about how to fit in with the in-crowd. Phil and his father have just moved to a new town and Phil is finding it difficult to make friends and instead sits in his basement fiddling with electronics. Dad notices something is wrong and comes down into the basement for a little heart to heart with his son. Phil is shy, and finds that the kids here talk, act, and even dress differently than they did in his hometown. Dad’s advice is to observe the popular kids to see what makes them tick, and then to emulate them in order to become popular. Phil starts stalking and eavesdropping on the popular kids, and finds out that the secret to their success is that they act interested in others, offer to help others, and tell others about their own experiences. Phil tries this out, offering his state-of-the-art radio system for the school dance, and he is soon a member of the in-crowd. It’s hard to find a better example of the forced conformity expected in postwar America.

This is one of the more well-made industry films that touts big business as the key to American prosperity, freedom, and social development. In the most high-flown rhetoric possible, the narrator explains how the southern textile industry was creating enlightened industrial progress, "The race to compete has led -- as it inevitably must -- to better mills, better methods, better men, and eventually to a better way of life!" There is a montage of factory shots showing how various types of cloth are made, but the interesting part of this movie is afterwards when we see the mill town itself, replete with happy white workers and their families. We see the town surrounding the mill, "The production of this mill does not stop with cloth. Perhaps its most important product is this (we're shown a suburban street with houses), the comfortable American home. A place and an atmosphere a man can earn for his family and for his future." The picnic, the company tennis courts, and the comfortable working environment are all promoted as the “new way” of American industry, a way where the worker was valued and protected instead of abused and exploited. This is a superb vintage film that divulges the landscape of the textile industry in postwar America.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Germans celebrate in Berlin the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. November 9, 1989, marked the beginning of a new era in history. It signaled the beginning of the end of Germany's postwar division and national unity came less than a year later on October 3, 1990. It was also the end of the Cold War and the beginning of a fully united Europe. Germans celebrate this anniversary in a spirit of deep gratitude towards the American people: Without the support of the United States, freedom would not have prevailed and reunification would not have been achieved.
