Description: A "public service presentation of Chrysler Corporation" that shows a humorous story of a journalist who is sent to photograph the new line of Chrysler cars at an auto show in Detroit.

A schoolteacher, standing at a blackboard, introduces the story and talks about Detroit's reputation as a car manufacturing town or "Motor City." The conclusion of the video reveals that Junebug Clark is one of the students in the teacher's class.
