This interesting 1950’s social guidance film for young women discusses how to find a mate. Instead of talking about how to dress and act on a date, however, Choosing for Happiness concerns itself with the issue of women taking men “as they are” and not trying to change them into the person they might want them to be. Mary, the narrator, is surprised that her vibrant and attractive friend Eve isn’t engaged yet. She investigates the issue, and shows flashback scenes from Eve’s past relationships. In each, a boy with a different personality type is subjected to Eve’s controlling ways, resists, and each relationship eventually fails. With the help of her realistic friend Mary, Eve learns that instead of trying to change her boyfriends, she should focus on the ways she can change herself for the better, and make fewer demands upon her suitors.
