- --no lies
- "'...no lies' presents itself as a cinema vérité documentary. A film student interviews a friend to fulfill a class assignment. Shot in one day at Park Avenue and 33rd Street in New York, at the home of filmmaker Muffie Mayer, the film features cameraman Alex [sic] Hirschfeld and actress Shelby Leverington. It was made by Mitchell Block as his MFA thesis at NYU School of the Arts, Institute of Film and Television, Graduate Division, in 1972." -- Container. "Speeding? is a short film for driver's educational classes on speeding and is still widely used. Again, Alec Hirschfeld is the cameraman and Block populates the film with actors from television and Hollywood films...and gives directors Martin Brest and Stephen Verona rare onscreen appearances. The Corona, California traffic unit and the California Highway Patrol provide the film with the reality of working traffic officers." -- Container.
