Something New -- Film Description:
"Something New tells the simple story of a writer who is kidnapped by banditti and whisked away to their desert lair. Her boyfriend comes to her rescue in his trusty Maxwell, driving with incredible skill through extreme desert terrain. The rescue is effected with ludicrous ease, but -- as often happens in a Shipman script -- the hero is injured and Shipman herself must execute equally amazing feats of driving to save the day."
