The perils of careless cycling are laid bare in this imaginative amateur short. Late for football practice, a schoolboy foolishly cuts corners to catch up with his friend. Will this be his last ride? Skilfully photographed and edited to build tension, the film won an Amateur Cine World award and the not-insignificant sum of £100. Today the scenes of 1940s suburbia boost its historical interest.
A film from the RoSPA collection (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents).
