Dated and melodramatic, it makes its' point nonetheless
30 August 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Oscar, has a dated feeling to it and the melodramatic tne common to the CRime Does Not Pay series of shorts, but for all that does have a point and makes it: the operation of heavy machinery while drunk is most unwise and can prove to be very costly. This runs on Turner Classic Movies as filler between films and almost certainly airs in March as part of the 31 Days of Oscar they do annualy. Worth watching.
