Someone connected to Hollywood with a YouTube account recently started publishing all of the episodes of Sally Field as Gidget from the 1960s. I thought it was cute so I watched the first 2 episodes and
it reeks of child grooming. In real life Sally Field was 19 years old but she had the physical features of a child so her character was 15 and 1/2 years old.
Put on your tin foil hats and watch the first couple episodes of this show if you can stomach it.
It would not fly in today's overly-sensitive climate.
First of all as a fun bonus, she mentions it's June 23rd (196x?) which coincidentally is an anniversary right about now, so what better time to revisit this pilot episode of Gidget!
Pilot episode mentions twice the sexual frustration of a 15 year old girl causes her to overeat (WTF??): (https://youtu.be/arQkAVJdj7g?t=13m59s) and https://youtu.be/arQkAVJdj7g
Next episode 15-year-old gets into an implied sexual situation with a 30-year-old surfer guy and later in the episode her father isn't entirely unsupportive of it https://youtu.be/xzdjioZh3wI
Sally Field's wholesome caricature plays it all off smoothly but if you were to just read the screenplay, it would raise some eyebrows.
Men wrote this! If you can bear sitting through the first two sappy episodes, just keep reminding yourself that men wrote this.
Also the brother-in-law character portrays a psychologist, and the topics they discuss are a bit mkultra-ish.
It's all played off cutely and innocently, but remember that men in Hollywood wrote this screenplay. Keep your tin foil hats on and remember that Hollywood is run by the CIA, they made a show with teen girls in bikinis, implied sexual situations, and even the father giving body language and innuendos of pedophilia/hebephilia (https://youtu.be/arQkAVJdj7g?t=3m) and the brother-in-law character is a psychology student who regularly analyzes this teenage girl with her dad.
No doubt I'm reading way too deeply into this, again these are subtle hints in this cute wholesome show, but my eyes are wide open. These are subconscious thoughts I had and they sound ridiculous when I write them out but here it is.
We know how the CIA and their psychological manipulation hides in plain sight and they call us crazy for calling them out on it.
Well I recognize it all.
