Devil Take Us

  • Del Kuhn: Traffic Officer ( traffic cop )

Devil Take Us is an American documentary film from 1952 directed by Herbert Morgan. Morgan also wrote the screenplay for the film and served as producer.


A police official, who usually rides a motorbike in the service, will buy a used car in order to go for a short vacation with his family to the East Coast. Along the way there are minor problems with the car, but also trouble with reckless behavior on the road. The policeman exchanged his experiences traveling with a colleague from the highway patrol from the reports on his part, bad experiences with traffic hooligans. The publication focuses on the perception of the police officers, as the return from the leave of the trip in the holiday is different.
