|Plot||George wants to ask Mildred to the community dance. However, George has never been on a date before. Not only that, but George is rather short--let's face it, he's a runt--and Mildred is much taller than he is. The high school swimming coach gives George advice on how to handle himself on the date by comparing a first date to a first swimming meet. George, much like the viewer, doesn't get that comparison, either. In any case, we follow George and Mildred as they each prepare for and eventually go out on their date.... see Beginning to Date on IMDb|

|When the Lincoln Junior High Teen Club decides to sponsor a dance, George, an insecure youngster, must take the plunge into the world of dating. Fortunately, he and his group of buddies all manage to find dates to the Winter Frolic! Thus begins a classic 1950's social etiquette film on dating. The group of kids in this movie represents the varied emotional and physical development that exists in George's age group. This film presents a somewhat realistic view of the limited nature of social interaction between young teens, but also includes some unintentionally funny moments (like how George's date is a full foot taller than him). Studs Terkel even makes a cameo as a helpful swimming teacher. On the whole, Beginning to Date provides a healthy dose of retro culture, fun, and goofiness from a socially structured era in American history.|
