Did You Know?


Second of nine educational films produced by Bell Laboratories on the subjects of the sun, the human circulatory system, radioactivity, the weather, heredity, language, the oceans, the five senses, and time. Four of these films were directed by Frank Capra.These films were used regularly in classrooms since they were well produced and Bell Laboratories would supply 16mm copies of the films to schools free of charge. The films were criticized by Time Magazine as being "condescending", but embraced by nearly everyone else. See more »

Still pretty accurate concerning much of our knowledge of the circulatory system
31 December 2000 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this every year in elementary school. It was a two-reel film, and I still remember that when Dr. Research says "sea water," that was the end of the first reel and we didn't get to see the rest until the next day. (Now I have it on video, and although it's kind of dated - there are some religious overtones about "right and wrong" and the TV writer/co-star smokes cigarettes throughout the film - it still holds my attention AND that of my ten-year-old son!)

But HERE'S a bit of trivia: He's not credited, but Sterling Holloway has a bit part at the beginning of the film. (He is best known for voicing Winnie the Pooh in the Disney films.)
