Smoking, says one tobacco executive, is "for the young, the poor, the black, and the stupid." This classic 1992 documentary exposes the lies told by the tobacco industry—lies about the addictiveness of tobacco, about reassuring health claims, about ads not targeting children, and about ads aimed at women. Critiquing onscreen images of advertisements, lecturers Jean Kilbourne and Rick Pollay recommend methods for pushing back against deceptive media. Grades 6 and up. Color. 35 minutes.
