Boys Beware (1961)
Description: Anti-homosexual film targeted at teenage boys, urging them to avoid encounters with potential molesters. In todays standards, it seems more like a film about the warnings of child pediophiles.. However, its neat to see how homosexuality and pediophilia were considered one in the same before gay rights, education, and awareness came along. I especially like the part when the first boy ended up telling his parents about his encounter with Ralph in a motel room then how by the next scene you see the boy walking out of the police station with the narriator stating that the boy was released on probation.. which basically means the boy was arrested and charged with a crime also (for being innocently involved in the homosexual activity). P.S. This educational film was actually distributed and shown in schools accross the United States in the 1960's and the following decades with reports of it still seeing the light of day in some areas of the Southern and Mid-Western states.
