Summary Educational films from the 1940s,1950s and 1960s addressing safety issues.
Fight Syphilis (1942) outlines the individual's role in combatting syphilis through education, blood tests, prompt medical treatment, and avoidance of quacks. Shots includes montage of quack remedies for venereal disease.
Tornado (1959?) is genuinely scary since it shows real tornados captured on film (by an Oklahoma City TV station): "Most violent type of storm on earth!" Equally disturbing are shots showing the destructive aftermath of tornados: "Strong buildings are reduced to rubble! Automobiles lifted and flung through the air! Great trees whirled around like toothpicks!" Since early warnings are especially important, we visit a Kansas City weather bureau that specializes in tornado warnings, and also learn the role of the Observer Core.
The Hidden Hazards (1964) shows how the protection of the American workforce from occupational hazards is a challenge to medical and health science.
