It’s been a while since I’ve shared any old educational films here on the Shattered Lens but I figured now might be the perfect time to share an old movie from 1951, What To Do On A Date. Produced by the good (or so I assume) people at Coronet Films, What To Do On A Date is … well, the plot is pretty much in the title.
Now, to be honest, this could have just as easily been called What To Do On A Date If You Want To Make Sure That Lisa Never Agrees To A Second Date. Seriously, this is totally squaresville. Like real Melvin. But you know what? I’m notoriously hard to please and, with Valentine’s Day coming up, this may be helpful to someone.
I don’t know who, exactly. But hey, it’s on YouTube and that’s the important thing.
(I’m all about helping. You know that.)
If you still need help after What To Do On A Date, you can watch 1949’s Dating Do’s and Don’ts. It was directed by the same guy who did What To Do On A Date. People in the 1940s were notorious for knowing what to do on dates. The Baby Boom didn’t just happen, y’know.
(Apparently, the version of Dating Do’s and Don’ts uploaded to YouTube is incomplete. But you’ll get the general point.)
