17 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

propaganda portmanteau movie: several persons ,aboard a car ,tell their tales .

The first is an improbable story of French resistance (but there is some excuse,for the screenwriters could not really know what happened across the ocean)with "la Marseillaise " galore .

Highly talented Robert Ryan is wasted in another improbable story of car race and Air Force pilots .

Other segments include "Miss America" and her unfortunate fiancé and a spooky story of death row.

The last episode puts the record straight :it's full of finer feelings and looks like a Frank Capra's finale but ,out of context, it is rather ponderous and doctrinaire :after all ,a tramp is par excellence an outcast,thrown out of the society-in the segment,it's his own will,but it is a very particular case- so why complain if the old man's remarks on the international situation do not concern him?Frank Capra probably would have found a way to make this moral convincing
