Storyline

This educational film emphasizes the importance of good grooming and personal hygiene habits. Clothes should always appear clean and neat, and should be appropriate to the classroom setting. (Inappropriate dress makes you uncomfortable and conspicuous, not a good thing!) The functions of the skin are examined in scientific detail. Methods for cleaning the skin are demonstrated. Besides maintaining skin and body health, good grooming habits will help you "fit in" in various social situations, and may even help a gal attract a boyfriend! Written by yortsnave

But I thought platform posture was the most important thing in life...
30 April 2006 | by (El Paso!) – See all my reviews

(r#19)

Having watched Body Care and Grooming, I'm not quite sure what to believe anymore. It's like the entire world has been turned up-side-down. Until this day, I was convinced that nothing was more important in my life than keeping a good posture. Now I've seen this short film and suddenly it's washing my face that I should worry about? I better keep doing the knee test, just in case.

This 40's short (oh, what a great period for "life for dummies" short films this was!) teaches us that if you're not good-looking, you might as well blow your brains out because you're never going to be of any use, ever, to anyone, and no one will ever like you. Having spread this uplifting message, a narrator with all the charm of a greasy McDonalds worker teaches us how skin works, why we sweat, and how to stay clean. It's stupid, shallow and dated as hell, but also pretty amusing for all the wrong reasons.

Remember: socks that have slid down your ankles a bit might mean the end of your social life! So be careful.
