Editorial Reviews

Though the era of 16mm educational cinema has come to a close, those quirky films unspooled in the mid-century American classroom continue to fascinate viewers today. And no group of titles is more popular than the safety films. Presenting scenarios that couldn't be depicted in a textbook or described from a lectern, safety films capitalized on the drama and spectacle of death -- lurking around every corner, in every pair of scissors, in every overloaded electrical cord, on every park bench where a stranger pets a puppy. The techniques employed by the fourteen films in this collection include: slapstick comedy (Step Right Up, on ladder safety), docudrama (Our Obligation, a large-scale reenactment a tragic schoolhouse fire), fantasy (Safety: Harm Hides at Home, which features an accident-fighting Wonder Woman knock-off named Guardiana), and animation (Lucky You, from the legendary Jam Handy studios). And no safety collection would be complete without an homage to the King of Calamity; Sid Davis: the child-molester film Dangerous Stranger and the unintentionally sadistic Live and Learn.

My friends and I watched some of the selections before we watched a movie. Some of the little films are corny, some are creepy, especially in light of the fact that they were made for kids to watch in school. yikes. But very entertaining. A few times we were laughing so hard we had to go back to see what we had missed. We tried to remember if we had watched educational short films like this when we were in school. Nothing like these gems.

These releases by Kino DVD is eye opening perfect for the lover of retro, vintage and old-school reality. I laughed and roared with humor seeing these old films. Priceless product. Worth ever red cent. Hilarious and most of all a great trip into the past.

Educational safety films are filled with slapstick, worrisome scenes. This compilation has some of the best films - aimed at school children, young adults and workers.
