This is a very strange story. I felt it really had a predictable storyline. when I saw it was written and directed by Michael it made more sense, as he likes to do off the cuff topics. I did like the bit when ben said to the banker he was going to close his account at the bank because he didn't like men with black hair, this was after he won't let George have a chance at getting a job because of his height. in all fairness George went on to rob the bank he new it was wrong and weather it was to feed his family or not it was wrong and ben had offed him his help.

Michael did a good job showing the way people can discriminate against others. All George wanted was to be treated the same as any other man. He was desperate for a job to support his family but no one would hire him. It wasn't until George rescued the bank manager's daughter the people realized George was a good man. This was later re-done in Little House as Little Lou. :grin
