Borrowed Power is a typical driver’s education film meant to scare kids into being cautious and responsible drivers. Jerry Thomas, quarterback of his high school football team and all-around great guy (the classic 1950's perfect young man), turns into a different person when he gets behind the wheel of a car. He drives aggressively, speeds, and generally abuses the “borrowed power” of the car. When he and two friends get hauled into court on suspicion of a hit-and-run in their (now) vintage cars, Jerry gets a lesson in the responsibilities of safe driving from the judge. In a touching showing of loyalty, a parade of friends and family come in to testify about how Jerry is such a great guy. The judge comments to Jerry’s father that Jerry received enough training to be a good pedestrian and bicyclist, but that he needed some more guidance when it came to being a good driver and vehicle safety. Life lessons abound by the end of the film as Jerry begins to understand what a serious matter safe driving is. One of many educational videos to employ scare tactics, Borrowed Power effectively contrasts reckless driving with defensive driving, car safety, and safe driving habits.
Driven to Kill, narrated by Lowell Thomas, tells the story of Hal, an upstanding U.S. citizen who changes into a dangerous madman when he gets behind the wheel. With Thomas’ classic dry delivery as a backdrop, the film captures Hal as a real red-blooded American: he hunts and isn't afraid to let his kids play with knives in the kitchen! He’s a different man when he’s driving, though, and his road rage (or aggressive driving) causes him to get in an accident that kills the other driver. Throughout this educational video are beautiful shots of classic cars and vintage automobiles. The ruining of Hal's life in this scare tactics video serves as a stern message about the dangers of reckless driving. Bad drivers at their best, Driven to Kill is an amusing glance at the history of road rage in America, with some important lessons car safety features and safe driving.
Tom used to play tennis, go bowling, and was an avid hunter. But Tom will never do any of those activities again because he has lost his leg in a car accident. Worst of all, his friend and passenger, Jim, is still in the operating room in the hospital. Tom has always been a cocky driver; and he had never been in any accidents before. When coming home from hunting trips exhausted and sleepy, or driving under the influence, Tom has always managed to escape without incident. Until now. Few Too Many is a classic dangers of drunk driving video that seeks to prevent drunk driving. Many people are affected by alcohol at as little as 0.05% blood alcohol concentration and all are affected at 0.1% BAC. Drunk driving statistics punctuate the often penetrating footage of horrible drunk driving accidents. Tom's story is not unique, and discussion of why teenagers drunk drive is an important part of the film. Some interesting cultural perspectives are illuminated, such as how alcohol abuse was thought of completely differently in the mid 20th century. At the time of this film, the idea of drinking was strongly tied together with the common idea of a man in America. Men were expected to hunt, bowl, and play sports - while drinking. So instead of changing this strongly held idea, Few Too Many seeks to lessen the danger: less drinking (not abstaining), safer driving and good judgment.
