Screenings: Traffic with the Devil (1946)

November 7th, 2017 · No Comments

[DVD, library]

A public service short that begins with the friendly Los Angeles motorcycle cop describing his job and all its petty annoyances. He shares some very interesting driving statistics, spanning from covered wagon days through to the mid-20th century, while we’re shown some wonderful period shots from the L.A. area. Then the tone becomes grim, as the warnings about driving civility become accompanied by wreck footage that is right out of the Weegee playbook. Add color and cell phones seventy years later, and you may be able to top this gruesomeness.
