Sutherland Productions - Going Places


This Harding College animated short defines the profit motive and dramatizes the part it has played in the economic development of America. It stresses the need for continued industrial profits if economic vitality is to endure.

The film stars Freddie Fudsie, a lazy soap maker, who just wants to go fishing. He invents bar soap, makes some money, and is about to retire in peace and quiet then the sexy female Profit Motive walks by and Freddie, who suddenly needs more money to win her affection, never sees a fishing hole again!
