Unfortunately, seven of the twelve films here are "condensed"--i.e., edited to keep the DVD's running time under two hours and thus (presumably) keep the price affordable. This collection still provides much cinematic pleasure, though true edufilm fans should see the complete versions of such classics as MARIJUANA (narrated by a zonked-out Sonny Bono) and NARCOTICS: PIT OF DESPAIR (the only film here I actually saw in school; I never forgot the cobra scenes). At least the DVD presents the uncut version of the proto-Lynchian ABC OF SEX EDUCATION FOR TRAINABLES.
Maybe Fantoma will release these films uncondensed on DVD someday.
smug 'LSD-Insight Or Insanity'.These are really fun if your looking for a good laugh at the absurdity of youth education of the day,or if your just into weird propaganda.
It's a fun ride. Good to see some early Kevin Teague before Emergency and Road House.
I started laughing about halfway through the LSD one and stopped when it ended. I know full well it was supposed to be educational and taken seriously, but how many of you guys out there would have taken it that way, or know how many kids today would pay attetion? =)
