Girls Beware is ostensibly about girls protecting themselves from untrustworthy men, but its underlying message is that girls are fragile victims who have to guard their honor or pay the penalties (i.e. incarceration by the Juvenile Authority). There is a certain validity to the idea that girls are vulnerable, and this film has some common sense tips for girls who are babysitting, dating, and in other situations. The last part of the film concentrates on the dangers of girls dating older boys. It implies that girls who do this can expect to find themselves in “trouble” with nowhere to turn. Interesting for its examination of antiquated gender roles and social stigmas, Girls Beware is a top notch vintage movie experience.
