Storyline

Sally and Bob have been married a year. She might be pregnant, so Dr. West picks up a test sample and tells them to come by in a week for the result. They recall problems they had just before marriage when they found out about each other's past (V.D. and pregnancy). Dr. West had helped them with good counsel and two films ("The Story of V.D." and "The Story of Reproduction"). A week later at his office he has good news and shows them another film, "The Story of Life." Dr. West wants them to know about modern medical science and to teach their kids the facts of life. The movie ends with a commercial for a new five-book-in-one, "The Mid-Century Marriage Guide." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not Your Typical 1948 Film

Because of Eve (1948)

** (out of 4)

Bob and Sally are about to be married but first they must go to Dr. West (Joseph Crehan) for their blood test. Turns out that he previously had VD and she was in a relationship with a man who would be killed in war without knowing she was pregnant with his child. The two are furious with one another but the good doctor steps in to educate them on life, sex and marriage. This is yet another "road show" picture that tries to educate people but this is just the excuse used to show various things that you typically wouldn't see in a movie from 1948. If you've got a weak stomach then you'll probably want to avoid this thing as it certainly leaves nothing to the imagination. We start off seeing a film about VD and what effects gonorrhea and syphilis can have on a body. Later in the movie we see another clip of how male and female sex organs work and we finally end up seeing a couple babies being born. All of this stuff is in our face so expect a lot of nudity and graphic images of "parts" being eaten up with disease. The educational stuff here is pretty well laid out and there's no doubt people will learn stuff (if they didn't already know it). I found the drama stuff to be pretty good as the characters were fairly well written and at least they were interesting. The stories of Sally and Bob were fairly simple even though the twist was pretty hard to believe. That really doesn't take too much away though as the entertainment level is there and we have Crehan giving a pretty good performance.
