Thought this student film from back in the day was interesting. A street race between a 67 Coronet 550 and GTO with a police chase in the end.

Propaganda revisionist history, should at least come with a Dragnet disclaimer, "the names have been changed and actors used for an actual event..........", right.

Student must have been caught smoking on school property and the film was his penance..

Funny, II did a similar 8mm film for media and communication class. Kid walks into drug store gift shop and prowls the aisles, I did taratino type camera angles through the shelves, in the curved mirror to catch theives, from the floor, overhead, he grabs dome glass paperweight type thing and pockets in and continues to prowl, walks up the the clerk and exchanges (voiceless) plesantries then starts to leave the store jusas he hits the sidewalk, mr mad pharmacist owner heavy hand on the shoulder cut to The End. All done to the theme of the good the bad and the ugly.
High school was very fun in the 70's, We also did an entire newscast, with the brainiac kid being the anchor, a ditz blond side kick and very busty weather gal, a math wiz business dialog, a jock sports caster and even included commercials with one students dog getting dog food that accidentally fell out of can onto the guys foot and the dog promptly devoured it. High school was really fun. The teacher of that class later got relieved of her job because she was carrying on with some of her students. We always wondered, short skirts and we were often left wondering does she, or doesn't she? Very fun, attention grabbing and somewhat educational.

In Jr High, I was stoked to be able to take metal shop classes etc. The shop teacher had his own bug eye Sprite race car in the classroom as a year ling project for his students. But no, the school student consular said I was going to college and needed Latin, etc So no shop for me. That metal shop teacher worked as a crew member at the nearby 12 hrs of Sebring for the winning Chaparral team in 1965 when the race had a historic rainstorm, Roger Penske was crew chief. That year car suffered from electrical gremlins during the race. Our schools shop teacher was in charge of the cars electrics. eek One day, he was no longer in school, and only something was suggested about his teaching credentials being lacking? eyes

That scene looks like it could be on Gratiot Avenue, in Roseville, MI back in the day. That heavy handed cop is pushing that kid around, just like a Roseville cop would do.....punk ass pigs! OINK OINK! laugh2

That film is actually filmed in my neck of the woods. I can’t recognize any of the streets though,
