Storyline

Jeanne, a high school girl, dumps her dull boyfriend Larry for Nick, a local thug and hot-rodder she finds exciting. Nick terrifies everyone with his dangerous and reckless driving, but that only turns Jeanne on even more. One night as Nick and Jeanne are out zooming around the countryside and terrorizing motorists, Nick smashes into another car. Fortunately for Jeanne she wasn't killed, although everybody else was. Unfortuantely for Jeanne, however, her face now looks like something out of a Fellini movie. As she catches a glimpse of herself in the mirror, she wails, "I've had my last date!"

Decent Driver's Ed Short

Last Date (1950)

** (out of 4)

This "scare" film is about Jeanne (Joan Taylor), a good girl who is dating a good guy but soon she starts to find him boring. That's especially true when she meets Nick (Richard York) who has a hot rod and likes to drive fast.

The constant message running through this eighteen minute short is the term "teenicide," which means teenagers committing suicide by misbehaving in cars. This message is beaten into the viewers head throughout the running time but that's to be expected out of a drive's ed film from this period. For the most part the short remains slightly entertaining due to the fact that everyone knows York who was just starting his acting career. The big "wreck" at the end is actually handled quite well and the director manages to build up some nice suspense. With that said, not "seeing" at the end was a letdown.
