Hilarious and Horrifying
25 December 2008 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

During the social chaos of the Depression and the War, young people had kinda gotten out of hand. They had to be taught now how to get back in hand.

In early 40's movies remember the fad of making up fake technical jargon ? When you consider all the technical education involved in gearing up an industrial economy for total war and maintaining huge fleets, air forces, and mechanized armies, that fad was what was actually happening. After the war, one of the companies that produced those wartime training films switched over to making films that were intended to be shown in high schools to "gear up" teenagers for peace and domesticity. Teenagers who had seen the Great Depression had to be sold a kind of 50's sitcom world and social order where Dad always wore a suit at home.

Girls had to be taught that their only value was to get and keep a man. "More Dates for Kay" is a brief short about a teenage girl who will bear any task, however menial, lie, manipulate, suck up in an endless quest for more and more dates. No put down, however brusque, stops Kay or causes her to suspect that there is maybe more to life than boys. The film presents Kay's desperate behavior, her total lack of introspection or self-respect, her inability to see any worth in herself without a guy without any criticism, seeing it as perfectly normal. Apparently 50's teenage girls were encouraged to be this man-dependent.

Kay's desperation is unintentionally hilarious but chilling when you look at it. You watch this short aghast at a mentality that would think that this is how girls should be raised.
