The Child Molester (1964)

Produced by the Highway Safety Foundation in 1964, The Child Molester is a shocking film that deals with a subject quite taboo
for its time. The short serves as a dramatized warning,
ending with graphic case studies. Unlike the driver's education
films produced by the same company, this film was apparently
issued for only a short time before being withdrawn.
I think I was in the fourth or fifth grade, around 1969, when I saw it during an assembly in the school cafeteria.
It terrified us.
