Junior Prom teaches proper etiquette for all aspects of going to the junior prom by showing the adventures of two different boys, Jerry and Frank, who go out on a double date together to the prom. Jerry is the perfect 1940’s example of a well-mannered gentleman, while Frank exhibits many characteristics of incorrect prom behavior. Jerry guides Frank through these “tough” choices as the narrator makes comments like “Allow the ladies to be more colorful.” All the rigid social ceremonies and strict behavior is covered, with a right and wrong way to handle every situation. Junior Prom is a wonderful examination of the history of the prom, as well as social structures and conformity in mid 20th century America.
