How to Be Popular – 1940’s High School Dating Guide. Lovely short movie from 1947 on how to be popular. How to talk to girls and date.
A nostalgic look at a very different kind of America, where respect for the other person took precedence over caring about one’s self. Being considerate was a first step to being popular and making friends, and a sure fire way of getting a date! The #etiquette principles followed here by Carolyn and Wally seem less and less relevant today.
If you’re a shy person, these same tips can be helpful too. You’ll learn to worry less about yourself, and how you look and show more interest in other people. If you want to know how to ask a girl out properly, this film’s charming example is one of the best you’ll find anywhere.
Filmed in Kodachrome in 1947 by Coronet Instructional Films.
Director: Ted Peshak. Cinematography: Bill Rockar. Written by Robert Chapin and Patricia Kealy. Editor: George Wilbern. Educational adviser: Dr. Alice Sowers, Director, Family Life Institute of the University of Oklahoma. With Marilyn Fisher (Caroline Ames); Bill Fein (Larry); Bunny Catcher (Ellie); Lester Podewell (Mr. Ames); Marilyn Fisher’s mother (Mrs. Ames); and Shaya Nash (Ginny).

    1. @Paola R. That’s really not weird. It just means she’s a kind person and wanted to make you feel good about yourself. I try to complement others all the time because I want to make them feel good NOT because I like them….People tend to assume way too much these days.

    2. @toothpicks in ur toes I’m sorry your going through that. I’ll be praying for you 🙂

  1. We love this film. American high school life is very different today. Do you think the suggestions here might still work these days?

    1. Yess, it is really nice having the guy offer suggestions instead of one thing to do or having her choose

    1. i find it so interesting how people in 40s-60s era tv dont just have a different dialect, but it sounds like they have different… types of voices? maybe its their inflection or something? just listening to people talking to eachother in this film especially, like around the middle mark when the two girls are getting ready for their dates, is so… weird. like i guess the only way i can describe it is a lot softer, rounder(?), and more nasally sounding voice than anything ive ever heard a human being around me use. does anyone know what im talking about or am i just crazy?

    2. @DumbDuck44 dude don’t even waste time debating these pozz brainlet normies. Its utterly futile. Trust me I’ve tried, they are all ideologically possessed and aversion to truth and reason is critical to sustaining their worldview

    3. Yes, gentlemanly & respectful towards one another…the way it should be. Thank God my parents raised me this way.

    1. Even with the sexism, I wish it was like this these days. I love the style back then, but don’t want to wear it nowadays because it’s too out of style.

    2. @MacKenzie Battiste Bunch of conditioned programmed labels is all you can come up with.. Think for yourself ffs.

  2. I love how the boy moved over so she could have the seat at the lunch table, instead of ignoring her and making her find her own chair. Such a gentleman.

    1. @Nico Vargas, your an r/niceguy… but a girl?? Eh whatever you should still be on that subreddit.

  3. It’s interesting to note that what popularity was back then – common sense, being friendly and respecting others – is the complete opposite of what happens these days ; *edit – In mainstream media.

    1. I don’t think this is a 100% accurate way to judge the way people actually acted. This is how they were expected to act, but we all know popular teens have the capacity to be catty and stupid, no matter what decade they’re from. I imagine it was real tough for kids who didn’t fit the ideal model for appearance and behaviour. They probably got picked on by some popular kids a lot, who I doubt were all this angelic.

    2. This was lame and stupid to the kids back then too. If you showed them this video you’d probably get beat up. Sorry to break it to you, but being respectful was never “cool”

    1. Thanks for clarifying, I kinda assumed that’s what she meant but I wasn’t sure cause I’ve never heard that expression

    1. It’s just the makeup and hairstyles – if they wore long, loose hair, less makeup they’d look “younger”

  4. “Caroline keeps a date calendar: she’ll never have the embarrassment of forgetting a date”. Yeah, sure, I also have so many dates that I could forget some of them… *cough*

  5. I don’t know if young people were actually like that back then, or if this was just what adults encouraged young people to be like. My parents grew up in the 50’s and 60’s (my mom was born in 1951, and my dad was born in 1949), and they said that things like bullying and cliques existed back then, just like they do now. So, I wouldn’t look at educational films from this era as an indicator of what life was like back then; I’d see them as an indicator of the pro-social values that were encouraged back then.

    1. I think for sure bullying and cliques existed back then but I doubt it’s the way it is now. I think society has seriously degraded since then. I mean we really have no way of knowing.

      Our parents and grandparents can tell us these things happened the same way back then that they do now but they really have no way of actually comparing our high school social lives to theres bc they dont live them anymore.

    2. @Iceman 99 yep, it wasn’t as extreme. My granmda told me it was more of just teasing each other. The way kids bully now is far too extreme according to her. At least here in South east asia it’s not as extreme years ago.

  6. Back then, a girl could date around and it wouldn’t be assumed that she was also sleeping with them. Glorious times to be young and single.

    1. John I just know I’m not degenerate for using tight clothes I’m respectful and respected and sometimes wear little clothes you obviously hyper judgmental. Got news for you: The degeneracy is in your brain

    2. @Dela Flowers That people are saying that the video is reflective of the youth from back then.

    3. @Meadow Gailer@ Overall, the youth those days behaved a million times better than today’s youth. Of course, there were always some who were mischievious, but there were consequences for their behavior from parents and teachers. Today, kids get away with the most outrageous things.

    4. @Dela Flowers I agree the youth in this day behavior is worst. Kids can bully each other to death without any consequences.

    1. Mandi Hale William didn’t shove it down your throat?? He just said homophobia is worse back then. Also we still don’t have equal rights everywhere. In my state, gay marriage was illegal until 2015. Being gay is still punishable by death/imprisonment in a lot of countries unfortunately and parents can legally put their child into conversation therapy in the US. Pride started off as a protest, then it spiraled into what it is today. You’re right about their being to many letters though. It should be LGBTQIAP and that’s it but ig some people just wanna be special snowflakes.

  7. This is what I imagined English conversation is like when I first start learning English but in reality : like, I’m like, it’s like, like like like….

    1. Lol yea, there’s so much slang that people actually use that teachers don’t teach you, so when you try to have a proper conversation it’s not like anything you expected.

    2. @Marissa X.X I think it’s just lack of vocabulary.
      It’s the same for all languages.

  8. Why does everyone think that this is an actual representation of high school life and teenage behavior in the 40s and 50s? We’ve all seen those cheesy videos and short films from the early 2000s about drugs, respect, not talking to strangers, etc, etc. Imagine your grandkid watching that in the future and believing that’s what school life or society was like when that couldn’t have been further from the truth.

    1. People actually had respect back in the day. It’s how they stayed married. And not the bullshit that is today. And not going around having a bunch of different kids with different people just because it’s something to do and it’s like whatever.

  9. People in the 40’s: *having so many dates that they have to keep a calender*
    Me now: *maybe being lucky if I get asked out one time in my life*

    1. LOL Today is so hard and much more complex to date people that it is no wonder companies in Japan and Germany are creating companion robots.

    2. If your thumbnail pic is actually you then it’s probably because you are hot. Guys assume that you will say no so they’re not going to ask you.

  10. “hey Jerry thats the new girl in our math class”

    Hey dude stop worrying about girls your gonna get drafted soon.
