Hell's Highway: True Story of Highway Safety Films DVD
This film examines the fascinating and shocking driver education films of yesteryear. Produced between 1959 and 1979 by a group of volunteers in Mansfield, Ohio, these films promoted safety by presenting color footage of careless driving's dark consequences: blood-stained wreckage, injured bodies, fresh corpses. In the 1970s and '80s, these films disappeared from the American classroom and assumed an almost mythical status among those who had once seen them. Hell's Highway unearths these artifacts of grim Americana and interviews the filmmakers responsible for this radical educational movement.
