I went to high school in the first half of the ‘60s and I didn’t recognize any of that. The second part of the video was vaguely familiar.
There was a big difference between the early ‘60s and the late. And an even bigger difference with the ‘70s. And IMO, it wasn’t an improvement as time went on.

When it was making the rounds at Master Control at CBS, the techs watched it a few times for “fun” then one screamed “Damn!” and they all watched it again in amazement!

Pretty good. Entertaining.

They must have been hiding all the fat kids. Oh, wait. This was not in the U.S. of A. No wonder....

“They are a high school, in Paris, France, of all places”

Thanks for that tidbit of information. As I watched the video, I was amazed at the lack of overweight kids and wondered where the students and high school were located.

It was all rather easy until the camera cart move at 3:55+, then it got really interesting!

Hiding all the fat kids?

A few years ago 90% or more of the high school population was thin.

Back in the early 70’s even the minorities were thin.

Check out this youtube video from 1974:

What’s the “I heart SK” on everyone’s shirt?

It took me a moment to figure it out, but I got it at the end when I saw the credits.

Here is an English link to ESSCA, which is a business college.

"I heart SK" is short for "I heart ESSCA," where "ESSCA" sounds like the letters "S-K."

Yeah. Grease, named for 1950’s greasers - bad boys with greasy hair. A musical play from 1971.

Until the hippies arrived, high school was like Leave It To Beaver, not Grease, LOL.

Moi aussi! If anyone went to High School in the mid to late 60s, 70s, or heaven forfend, the 80s, they are more intellectually akin to 6th Graders of our day; not very bright 6th graders.

Today, they are the tattooed, obese, badly dressed hordes in the Wal-Mart parking lots of our once fair land. Obama people!

Ah well. Not their fault then, is it? More likely ours.

I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates, you’ve got a brand new key. (1971)

I was just a youngster but it was on the radio all the time along with “Rose Garden”.

Holy Cow, that was spectacular.

I can’t imagine the logistics involved in creating that production.

What a nice PR video for Grand Rapids and for that matter, America.

When was that made?

“Rita Hayworth Is Stayin’ Alive”

###

A truly gorgeous and talented woman.

I read her favorite movies were the dance vehicles she did with Fred Astaire.
