A Holiday Warning
12 September 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Released just prior to X-mas, 1954, the entry is meant to warn public on dangers of drinking and driving. The first part is heavy on procedure, as doctors determine extent of woman's road accident injuries. Bray is excellent as attending physician, and we believe him when he says informing injured's loved ones is his hardest duty. Utility actor Repp is also excellent as self-centered driver of guilty car. Wisely, the screenplay doesn't exempt the injured woman since she too has been drinking. But, I wonder if strangers like Repp's character would be allowed entry into hospital receiving room as happens here. Overall, the entry is well intentioned but oddly leaves much to imagination. Thus, there may be disagreement over whether 30-minutes achieves desired full impact.
