A Quarter Million Teenagers1964

250,000 teens! That sounds like a recipe for fun! Uh-oh: in fact, it's the number who got sexually transmitted diseases last year (according to this health-class short). "Perhaps it's time we stopped being secretive," opines our narrator, adding, "Embarrassment should never prevent a person from getting help." Indeed: the consequences of avoiding treatment can be very serious and are certainly "icky" in the photos of open sores and such that are seen here. More watchable are artist Spencer Peel's illustrations of how disease works in the body, animated modern-art graphics that would look perfect as framed graphics on a mid-1960s bachelor pad wall. - Dennis Harvey
