Showing results for tags 'baby'.
I can't get enough of them and never know what I will find. Everyday is like Christmas. Recently I acquired some 16mm childbirth films from the 1940's. They were labeled 'baby being born.' They turned out to be a bonanaza. The views of 75 year old surgical rooms and dress is fascinitning in itslef, but there is so much more. The anesthesiologist continually drips ether out of a bottle on a dust mask for knocking the gal out. Another clip has the assistant pushing the baby back in the vagina as it tries to come out. Intertitle says something like: Retarded birth to allow for episiotomy.
