Molly Grows Up (1953)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Molly is a young girl who finally realizes that she's growing up once her period starts. Her mother sits her down and explains the type of changes she should be expecting as well as giving her some tips on how to properly handle herself, including making sure she dresses nice whenever she is on her period. Say what? Yes, this is another one of those sex education films that were produced back in the day in hopes of teaching kids about their bodies. This one here was actually well- made considering what it was and it was fairly entertaining as well. There are some pretty funny moments in the film including some of the demands on the proper way to handle yourself whenever the period is at work.
