Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One's enjoyment of Road Lawyers and Other Briefs is contingent upon one's fondness for student film projects. Three of the segments in this four-part film are student-produced short subjects, with the expected sharp variance in quality. "Road Lawyers" is a broad takeoff of the Mad Max school, its single joke given away by its title. "Escape from Heaven" is all about a nun whose chattering piety drives everyone crazy. And "Hairline" concerns itself with...a hairline. The final segment of this omnibus feature is a gagged-up snippet from the 1951 Republic serial Radar Men From the Moon, which was "funny" enough originally without the overdubbed dialogue.
