Every sci-fi movie set from 1950 to 1969 or so has some local community college professor saving the day. Giant spaceship 7 miles long crash lands? Ger Dr. whoever from the local community college out here, he will know how to defeat it. Asteroid crashes and a black plague death spills out? Dr. so and so from the local 2 year school is an expert on all things pathogen.

It's really awesome. And they all somke a pipe.

The community college professors I had (With the exception of a few) taught community college because they couldn't get a job in their respective field.

But in 1955, they were the height of knowledge! They knew about everything than ANYBODY.

Which is why my greatest defeat in life was to never build a time machine.

I always assume the aliens attacked or crashed next to harvard.

And they always get the hot black haired chick (after they smoke a pipe and figure out that the alien ship has a hexacode entry system of 33-467-d-d + the ratio of PI).

Ohhh I agree. My Con Law professor was an amazing professor. He also had himself a nice rifle range at his summer home in Florida.

In the 50s community college probably wasn't a continuation of highschool like it is today. I wasn't alive then so I can't say for sure. However who can disagree with a guy with glasses a white lab coat a name badge and a pipe? Not me.
