Not good enough to show kids and not funny enough for a laugh.
Despite the copyright year being 1967, the actors in this film appear to have hair and clothes from about 1961--plus the cars are obviously older. At first I suspected that this film was NOT the 1967 film but both were listed as being made by Sid Davis Productions. Why this is the case, I am unsure but I suspect the year listed is wrong.
The film consists of black & white film that is narrated as you see the story of Jim's life. He goes from experimenting with alcohol to driving drunk to living on Skid Row.
Overall, not too bad for an older educational film, but it's square narration probably made quite a few in the target audience giggle. Not bad enough for laugh and not good enough to show to kids.
