Author's comments and explanations:
The Addams Family, 43 seconds (2599 frames) faster than the current published movie by Walker Boh.

About the game

I'll use Walker Boh's description, he describe the game pretty well: You play as Gomez who is going to save his wife from that evil dude in the basement. To be able to reach that evil guy, Gomez must collect 1 million dollars to gain the access.
The Game itself is very hard if you play it normally due to bad collusion detection and you can get hit rapidly if you don't move away from enemy quick enough.

My comment

When I chose this game to make a run for, my main purpose was to record a run on newer FCEU and try optimize movement. As I go thorough the game, reviewed Walker Boh's run several times and spotted some area to improve upon, such as sacrificing little time conserving hit points to take damage to save a lot time later. I also discovered that you can grab extra $10,000 in the chimney so I skipped several area to save a lot times. And lastly I discovered a way to finish the game early, so don't just think that my movie look like that it desync. =0
Although Walker Boh deserves the most credit for the route, if it wasn't for his movie I wouldn't know what to be doing in it.

NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. I'm not sure I got the right ROM though. (I tried , which was the closest match to what you wrote.) Well, here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.
