While depreciating your mind.
11 April 2002 | by icehole4See all my reviews

Ah, what is it about instructional films of the 1950's that make them not stand up to the test of time? This one certainly didn't. The narrator is pretty annoying and sounds like an old hick.

Avoid this one unless you're watching the MST3K version.
