Human Reproduction seeks to answer that eternal question from a youngster: where do babies come from? As the film demonstrates, this was possibly more difficult to answer during the rigid social structure of the 1940s. When a father tells his son that babies come “By the Grace of heaven,” his son is not satisfied. At this point, the narrator launches into a description of the entire reproductive process, in stark medical detail, complete with pictures of sperm, eggs, and drawings of babies in various stages of development in the womb. Ahead of its time in 1947, this film contains accurate information, clearly stated. An enriching snapshot of the notions of sexual education in the 40s, Human Reproduction is a valuable piece of vintage video.
