Pop Culture and Teenagers Union Pacific Railroad presents: “Last Clear Chance”
01:38:44 – 02:03:26 A funeral procession into a cemetery. A police officer gets out of his car and we hear his thoughts about the Dixon family. We see the story of Frank Dixon who was studying agricultural science, had a girl named Betty. His kid brother Allen gets his driver’s license and as he’s showing his family, the Officer arrives. He tells Allen the facts of life about car accidents, tells stories a reckless accident and hands him a brochure “Signs Of Life.” Frank and Betty come over to the group. Allen wants to go off driving and Frank and Betty go off to follow him. They wave to each other in their cars. Frank doesn’t see the warning lights that a train is coming and they are hit by the train. Frank is killed but Betty is put into an ambulance.
