Aetna Insurance produced this wonder of wonders in 1947. In the last month I have witnessed about 50% of the things discussed in this animation. Nice to know things haven't changed much with bad driving in 70 years... except cellphones and texting...

A good chuckle. You are right that things haven't changed much. With all the safety features on cars, and on the roadways,

the part that has never really been addressed is the attitude of drivers. I think cops should be able to give tickets for that.

(I know, I know. I would have a big stack.) Recently I saw a news feature in which a Canadien cop gave a driver a ticket

for singing while driving. He was singing a disco song. Kudos to that cop.

I would like to know how the cars were manipulated to produce that film. Frame by frame exposure, moving each vehicle a certain distance each time? People under the table/set, using magnets to attract the steel plates on the bottom of the cars, following a line painted on the underside? Those are my guesses. Any other theories?

 

The train looked like a Lionel.

 

Neat old film, and sadly, all too true today.


My neighbors listen to heavy metal... whether they want to or not!!!

I'm sure it was filmed in stop-motion. That was a common method for cartoons and clay-mation films back then.
