How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Both CW Briggs and Betty Ann Fitzgerald have been involved in bad personal relationships. How do those past relationships color their views of the opposite gender? How does each character cover up their insecurities?

How did the characters in this film use alcohol to help them build up their courage during difficult times or to forget their troubles? Did the alcohol sharpen or deaden their ability to make good choices?
