| One of the better ones....and a lot like CSI 1935!
"Hit-and-Run Driver" is among the better shorts from the "Crime Does Not Pay" series--and that's saying a lot because these MGM shorts were exceptionally well made. I think my biggest reason for liking this one in particular is that it depends so much on real forensics and excellent police work--sort of like making it like CSI 1935!

The film begins with a drunk young man driving like a nut along a mountain road. He loses control and his car goes careening into a couple. To make things worse, the driver leaves them--too afraid of the consequences to stay and help. What follows is a wonderful example of police procedures and forensic work--very realistic and also amazingly thorough considering how long ago the case occurred. In the end, naturally, crime did NOT pay and they were able to get a confession out of the jerk. Well written, very well acted (particularly by the perpetrator) and entertaining from start to finish--very compactly and very deftly made. This is still VERY entertaining when seen today.
