Hemo the Magnificent (1957)

A marvelous animated documentary that told everything there was to know (and more!) about Blood and the circulatory system. It was one of a series on bodily systems. In 1957 it inspired me to learn all I could about the human body.

Bell Science Series about the pulmonary and circulatory systems.
5 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Actually, I would rate this an 8 for teachers of intermediate level students. I remembered watching it in elementary school and never thought I would be able to obtain a copy. Well I did. I watched it and decided to show it to my class of 5th graders, not sure of the reception since some of the animation was dated. The students thoroughly enjoyed it and asked to see another one like it. It made understanding the circulatory system so simple and gave much more information than the text book. There were one or two things I needed to update, but other than that it was great. I actually wish we had more films like this rather than those that barrage the students with so much at one time. It gave the children time to think about what they were learning. It would be great if someone would update these.
