Prompted by a discussion between painters sitting at lunch, this film analyzes seven common notions about races, heredity and group differences in the light of known scientific evidence, and proves them all wrong. Since it's situated on a college campus, the discussion benefits by the availability of modern audiovisual aids (an overhead projector) and attempts to delve under the surface of stereotype. Overall, it's a relaxed, humorous discussion that certainly shows its age.

Admonishes Americans that they will lose their country if they let fanaticism and hatred turn them into "suckers." "Let's forget about 'we' and 'they' -- let's think about us!" In the context of the emerging Cold War, this film appears paradoxical.

Fitzsimmons (who traced the backgrounds) to create 10,000 drawings, which they inked on rice paper and mounted on cardboard. Gertie is a dinosaur based on the Brontosaurus (nowadays known as...

Anita Bryant (famous Florida orange juice and anti-gay spokeswoman) narrates this film that tries to simplify its drug abuse message with an analogy of kids putting together a contraption out of Lego blocks. Although the metaphors often don't make sense, the visual impact of the film is stunning and could easily be quite popular with individuals consuming illicit drugs. Also, like most anti-drug films, this could be a tempting introduction to drugs for some youths yearning to escape their...
