First of long line of Sid Davis produced educational shorts
5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first of a long line of educational short films that Sid Davis produced from the start of the '50's all the way to the beginning of the '70's warning children of various dangers that they might encounter. The most infamous one being the later "Boys Beware" that has been harshly lambasted and anyone who admits to liking that particular one has been openly ridiculed and persecuted to no end. But I digress, this ten and a half minute short , like later ones, is about the dangers of being hassled by strange men. Told by the viewpoint of a local beat-cop, the film tells various instances of evil doers and how kids can protect themselves from these local scum buckets. Of course being from the Fifty's, it's slightly dated, but still informative.This short can be found as an extra on Something Weird's DVD double-feature of "Hitch Hike to Hell" & "Kidnapped Coed".

My Grade: B
