Body Care and Grooming

January 1, 1947

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!

The Story of a Star

January 1, 1956

The Deering Milliken Research Corporation sponsored this visually striking production to push Agilon, a "new and better stretch yarn for stockings." A narrator tells us that "people want better, newer, more beautiful things" and that Agilon is superior to standard Nylon, which has "no standard for stretch." The rhetoric in this film is more or less typical, but its stylish visual look makes it memorable. Lots of leggy models and sparse fifties sets.
