In a day when lurid and sensational forms of entertainment claim an undeniably large part of our children's attention, parents whould be especially grateful for films, such as NANCY DREW DETECTIVE, which offer the excitement and action all children crave without any adverse or unhealthy social implications. I understand there is to be an entire series of NANCY DREW pictures, and I shall be interested in following them.
