This cautionary tale was aimed towards young, thrill-seeking teens. The exciting car chase at the end of the film may have glamorized joy-riding to students more than actually demonize it. If nothing else, the film reveals the primary perpetrator of auto thefts - bored, horny boys.

"Good people make a good country" wholesome Bob Crane (Hogan's Heroes, Super Dad) explains in this film that spells out the basics of patriotism for young viewers. This film was part of a series made by prolific educational filmmaker Art Evans who had film celebrities illust American values to school children. Unfortunately, films that rely on celebrities to make their points can suffer if the celebrity's image is later tarnished.
