From 1965 ... "Homemade cautionary drama about the case of a young girl who is abducted and murdered by a stranger. Director and Photographer: Joseph S. Cozzolino. With Tolie Cozzolino (Mother); Rennie Knight (Girl); Danny Knight (Stranger); Steve Knight (Boy); Ron McHenry and R. Anderson (Deputies). Filmed in and around Santa Rosa, California. Kodachrome."

Part of the Prelinger Archives, where you can watch this peculiar mental hygiene film in its entirety and read details about the film's origin. A policeman with a passion for filmmaking enlists his family to help make a movie about stranger danger for use in classrooms ... the result is as charming as it is unsettling.
