Deals with individual who habitually fails to plan and use time wisely in carrying out responsibilities.
Jean disappoints her peers when she becomes chairman of the social committee. She always puts everything off to the last minute and as chairman she says, "I'll take care of everything" and then cannot live up to her words. Her classmates urge her to get things started early and to divide up the workload, a teacher suggests that she make a "to do" list with time allotted for each task but instead of heeding their advice she isn't able to get everything together for the school dance and everybody is justifiably upset with her.

Sorry, My Foot!
Another amazing production put forth by my faaaaavorite teen guidance film maker, Young America films! In this film Jean procrastinates procrastinates procrastinates, putting off everything, and she's in charge of her school social committees and parties! Her parents and school principal goes after her, but she doesn't listen, and it all winds up horribly, with the students coming down on her harshly. The actress playing Jean is alright, but special bonus points go out to the actress playing her Mother, who seems to put a comma after every two words, her enunciation is bizarre. And the actor playing Jim, who looks EXACTLY like the boy pal Cindy has in Cindy Goes To A Party.. Same voice, same inuncations. But, this was made 4 years earlier then that classic film. I'm at a loss to explain this. Highly reccomended!
