Mom & Dad ★★ 1947

An innocent young girl's one night of passion leads to an unwanted pregnancy. Stock footage of childbirth and a lecture on the evils of syphilis concludes this campy schlock that features the national anthem. Banned or denied release for years, this movie is now a cult favorite for its time-capsule glimpse at conventional 1940s sexual attitudes. 97m/B VHS . Hardie Albright, Sarah Blake, George Eldredge, June Carlson, Jimmy Clark, Bob Lowell; D: William Beaudine; W: Mildred Horn; C: Barney A. Sarecky.
