Explosive Generation, The (1961)

An excellent example of what happens when Hollywood tries to get serious.

William (Star Trek) Shatner is a high school teacher with the usual qualifications; dedication, principles, integrity . . .

When he starts talking about zygotes and sperm cells in class everybody gets uptight. The students don’t back him, the administration is spineless, the parents are pissed off, and his job is in jeopardy.

Every cornball cliche is paraded across the screen before the viewer is spoon-fed the usual happy ending and moral at the end.
