The Doors to Schools of Learning Might Remain Closed

Dateline: Florida, 1963. Thanks to the folks at Mojo (the magazine) there's evidence that the pre-Doors Jim Morrison was not a crash hot actor. This appears to be some sort of public education film telling teens that the university place of their dreams doesn't await them unless they knuckle down and study.

Jimbo, soon to be a Lizard King, was then just the 20-year-old son of a US Navy Admiral who made it into film school at UCLA. Someone now needs to uncover a long-buried anti-drugs public service ad and life will be complete.

aw shucks Pa - leave me alone.
Did you see the More Dorky fellow students?
The Dylan album hasn't been released yet, the Beatles first single was only a few months ago and hasn't been heard in the US yet, and Janis is still hitching a ride outta Austin. You young uns have no idea how bleak life was Before The Teen Revolution.
Now check my hair length.
Considered anti-social at the time let me tell you.

peace and love from someone who recalls 1963 very clearly.
