Undated: 'The Prom: It's a Pleasure!'

Made by The Jam Handy Organization (and sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company), "The Prom: It's a Pleasure!" was an educational film about the prom night experience. Says amazon.com's editorial review: "From the phone call asking Junior Miss for the date, to the drop-off at the end of the night, this film details prom etiquette for the curious and uncouth teenager." (Note: the narrator and star of the film is America's Junior Miss, Mary Frances Luecke, who as Mary Frann would star as Bob Newhart's wife in the 1980s television comedy "Newhart.")
