'Dating Do's and Don'ts': Relationship Etiquette From 1949

More

From Coronet Instructional Films, dating advice for teens ...

After Allan Woodrow, AKA "Woody," receives a ticket to the carnival for "one couple," he realizes that he'll need to find a date: "One couple. That means a date! Not like just going around with a crowd. Just me and a girl." But Woody's never asked a girl out. The film takes us through the phases of dating, from picking the right gal, to best practices for calling her, to proper goodnight etiquette. After running through a number of fraught scenarios, Woody learns the best way to get the girl -- and keep her.
