A guided tour through the darkened classrooms of the past.

Generations of American children sat in dark classrooms and absorbed wisdom in the form of 16mm educational films.Through the flicker of dim projector bulbs and the warble of optical soundtracks, a blueprint for better living in the Atomic Age was spelled out in no uncertain terms. Now, just as you remember them, Fantoma presents this collection of driver's safety films, ranging in date from the late 1940s to the early 1980s.Some historical, some hysterical and all filled with more important misinformation than you can digest in just one viewing.

In the 1940s and '50s, America faced a menace even more frightening than the Bomb: teenagers with cars.Discover how we dealt with this new and terrible threat.

Films include: The Last Prom, Joyride, The Bottle and the Throttle, Safety Belt For Susie, Tomorrow's Drivers, and The Talking Car.

All films are presented complete and uncut.
