Produced and directed by University of Texas at Austin students Tom Wright and Ann Leifeste, this 1970s student film uses stop-motion animation to create a racing drama. Turns out Miss Prissy Pureprude owes a debt to Lecherous Luigi, her swarthy mortgage holder. Sweet William and Hapless Henry challenge Lecherous Luigi to a race to save the day and pay the mortgage. Using the latest in anti-pollution vehicles (no vehicle at all), the trio race for Miss Prissy Pureprude’s fate.
