Bad movie, good message.
2 January 2004 | by Jordan_HaelendSee all my reviews

This Driver's Ed instructional safety film was made in 1955, and although the acting is wooden and the dialogue is stilted, I can say that its message of caution and courtesy while driving definitely is one worth repeating. Plus I love all of those Classic Cars.

"Officer Hal" is the Voice of Authority in this film, and his narration both opens and closes it. In between, he gives a lecture about highway safety to a young kid who has just gotten his driver's license. Naturally, since U-Pac financed the making of this film, the emphasis is on accidents at Railroad Crossings.

Just as naturally, the film has its own teen-tragedy plot, when Frank Jr. gets killed. Considering when this was made, one can almost hear the song "Teen Angel" after the accident (only in this film, of course, the girl is injured but it's the boy who licks the lollipop, so to speak.)

Again, the message is good, even if -you should pardon the term- the vehicle that delivers it is flawed.
