Last week, I shared The Snob, an educational film from 1958. Today’s short film — 1955’s The Gossip — is from the same people who gave us The Snob and it has also become something of a personal obsession of mine. While it’s not as intense as the Snob, the Gossip is still a pretty accurate look at the type of people that every girl has had to deal with at some point in her life. If nothing else, The Gossip was the Mean Girls of its day.
(That said, it’s interesting to note that, in the 50s, all the gossip centered on who was cheating on tests as opposed to who was cheating on who.)
Like The Snob, The Gossip was directed by Herk Harvey and stars Vera Stough.
