Test Tube Babies

(W. Merle Connell, 1948)
Preceded by How to Take a Bath (Dwain Esper, 1937) and How to Undress (Dwain Esper, 1937)

New Restoration

In Test Tube Babies, a young couple dealing with infertility is talked through the miracle of artificial insemination by a profoundly deadpan doctor. It’s all an excuse to include color footage of actual childbirth at the end of the film. (69 mins., DCP) Preceded by How to Take a Bath (14 mins., DCP) and How to Undress (15 mins., DCP), both by Dwain Esper and neither requiring a plot summary.

Please note: special event parking ($5) is available in Ohio Union South Garage for this screening. Please allow extra time for travel and parking.
