Kitschy Educational Films

Kitsch can be a lot of fun. Coronet Films were the leaders of that from 1946 to the early 70's. Some of the films are a perfect sign of their times with their misogynistic undertones and touches of bigotry, no surprise there, but they are an optimistic, hokey view of what some people believed the world was like. I bet if some of those folks in the videos from the 40's and 50's were given a viewing of "Mad Men" most of those folks would clutch their pearls and keel over in moral horror. But let's keep it light shall we?

There are a few in the bunch below whose messages could/should be applied today. Let me share. 

This one is Appreciating Your Parents. This is probably the hokiest of the clips, but the message is pretty solid.

Your Thrift Habits

Good Eating Habits

Buying Food
