Storyline

A man wearing suit, tie, black-framed glasses, and a hat, leaves his house in LA's San Fernando Valley and heads off in his car. Except his car is him, seated on the ground - he moves via stop motion. He's careful and methodical, but when a cigar-chomping hotshot cuts him off, he engages in a bit of passive aggressive driving. We watch one of the drivers get gas, receive a citation from a cop, and deal with a flat tire. The two rival drivers are eventually in quite a race, which ends when one hurls off the road. At the end, a woman in gold slippers puts a tip in the driver's hat. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When the man in the suit first backed out of the driveway and stalled in the gutter, he left a wet trail when he sneezed-backfired into the middle of the road. When he pulled away, the camera cut to a side angle and the wet trail was missing. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the title is shown, there is a roll-up where the producers thank a long list of auto safety organizations, ending with, "...without whose contribution this film was made." One of the organizations listed is "United Tailgaters". See more »

Drive Safely!
7 November 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

With a hat resembling Buster Keaton's, well-suited Len Janson walks out of his sunny southern California home, breathes in some fresh air, and whistles himself into an imaginary car. Through "stop/action" photography, he appears to be hitting the road. Elsewhere, wearing a hat like James Cagney's, sporty Chuck Menville lights up a cigar, vainly checks his appearance, and unsafely shaves while driving. After guzzling some gas, Mr. Menville is pulled over for a speeding ticket. Continuing to speed, he causes problems for Mr. Janson, who tries to drive more safely. The painstaking trick photography got this entertaining short safety film nominated fro an "Academy Award". It was admirably written, directed and performed by Janson and Menville.
