Stop Driving Us Crazy! (1959)

A strange driver’s education film combining religion and sci-fi in the form of Rusty, a Martian who comes to Earth to explore the planet because his own is running out of oxygen. Rusty has heard of Earth where people are good Christians and believe in God but finds that they do not treat each other as respectfully or lovingly as one would expect, instead witnessing reckless driving which endangers the lives of others. Although the film is about road safety, citing the number of accidents and casualties that occur as results of car crashes, there is clearly another agenda at play, one which makes sense when you see that the film was produced by The General Board of Temperance of the Methodist Church.
