New Roadways (1939)

*** (out of 4)

MGM Passing Parade short about how scientists are developing things to help people in the future. This short talks about ho how mice are being used to cure various diseases. Also talked about is how plastic surgery is a good thing especially if you're ugly because if you are ugly then a life of crime is the only option for you (or so says this short). This is a pretty entertaining short that has several unintentional laughs due to various bits but most of these are due to the fact that this film claims only ugly people commit crimes.
