CGiii Comment

With her debut, Donahue manages to do what most only aspire to - producing a damn fine short.

Big on quality, huge on entertainment.

Really, this is a little gem of a film.

Pity, there are too few out there capable of producing something of this quality.

Very well done. Hugely entertaining. This lady should be making movies.

The(ir) Blurb...

This mock 1950s-styled educational film chronicles a phase in the life a school aged boy, Billy, whose thoughts turn to what he wants to be when he grows up, as career day is approaching at school. Not knowing what he wants to do, he wishes he had it as easy as his sister, who only has to attract a man to become his wife. Billy has as role models his father, mother, and neighbor Betty Henderson whose double entendre activities demonstrate that Billy can be and do whatever and whoever he wants when he grows up.
