A Pioneer of Cinema Passes On

Sid Davis, 90, a Filmmaker of Cautionary Tales for Youth, Dies

I love this obituary, if only for the last line:
Also surviving is Mr. Davis’s daughter, Jill Davis, who as a child was shown being impaled by an errant pair of scissors in “Live and Learn.”

Some of Davis's work is available for viewing at The Internet Archive, including:

Alcohol Is Dynamite

Keep Off the Grass

Moment of Decision

Gossip

Big Man on Campus

Girls Beware

and the infamous Boys Beware

Ah, good times...
