Studies in Hypnosis- This silent 1940's film shows a young woman being hypnotized (and quite easily I might add) and then poked, prodded and subject to the art of suggestion - "Your Arm is very stiff!" ~ "I'm going to touch your hand with a red hot instrument" ~ "You are now blind!".
Audio/Visual: silent, b&w 9:26 Minutes
Medical Quackery (PSA)- Famous news correspondent Raymond Massey is the spokesman for this Public Service Announcement released by the FDA in the 1950's warning seniors not to buy into quackery and "quack" cures including an oblong object that supposedly emits "Z-Rays" that will cure arthritis and taped music that will supposedly cure all types of cancer.
