Clip contains a trailer for the 1962 film Married Too Young. The film chronicles the story of high school sweethearts who find out that marriage is not what they thought it would be. Things turn from bad to dangerous as they get involved with a gang of car thieves. The trailer offers a fast paced guide through the narrative, using super imposed text to offer sound bite like narration. Clip opens with a WS shot of a racetrack around which many cars are parked. Over this shot the film title is superimposed.“Married to Young” then spins into and blur and changes into “Racing Thru Life”. Cuts to WS filmed from the side of the race track as cars speed past. Cuts to green screen MCU of one of the race cars, growing from the center the words “For Kicks” emerge.
