This educational short is just about what you'd expect; a speech about speaking. We're told not to mumble, but to speak clearly, loudly, and by golly, be interesting and use low tones. Of course, these days it would be much simpler to just play a tape of anything said by Gilbert Gottfried or Roseanne Barr and just instruct the students NOT to sound like that.
At just 10 minutes long, I was still starting to doze off when the narrator said, "...and use good tongue and lip action." I came to attention thinking I had rolled over into another kind of instructional video, but alas, this thing was made in 1950, and he was still just talking about talking.
I didn't get a lot out of this thing, but it's an educational short. Has anyone ever actually learned anything from one of these films?
