  • Description

    "This is a tale of Hospital babies, where they avoid those possible "mixed identity" errors - " C/U of two nurses, one holds a tiny baby. The other nurse sticks a label to its back. C/U of a necklace which has lots of white beads.

    Lettered beads in the centre of the necklace read: "BABY BLACK" - how cute! C/U of the nurses as one puts the necklace on the baby - the baby cries. C/U of the baby with its necklace on. I think this is a bit dangerous! Wouldn't happen these days!

    "In addition to the bracelet (sic) and label, a foot imprint as well! (This is a howling success)" Baby lays on a table and a roller loaded with black ink is rolled across one of its feet. C/U of the baby crying. The nurse presses a piece of paper against the baby's foot. "Everybody's Darlings!" Panning shot of two rows of babies in cribs all lined up. Nurses attend to them.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 555.

    Safety print exists.
