Prelinger Archives

The Prelinger Archives contains over 40 000 “ephemeral” (advertising, educational, industrial, and amateur) films. One gem: Are You Popular?, “one of the best examples of post-World War II social guidance films, with examples of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ girls, proper and improper dating etiquette, courtesy to parents, and an analysis of what makes some people popular and others not.”
