"Give Yourself the Green Light" is a public service short film produced by General Motors. Now considering the subject matter, I found myself thinking that the film was incredibly self-serving! Why? Because the film is about how terrible it is owning a car when the highway systems and roads in America are so inadequate! There may well be a lot of truth to this. After all, in 1956, the government passed a grand highways act...authorizing a HUGE increase in the number and quality of roads. Considering the timing, I am sure the short had some impact on this law, though watching it today is very ponderous and it's a bit obsolete. Overall, a historical curio and nothing more.
