Health and Clothing
Prepared by Bermondsey Borough Council under
the direction of Mr H W Bush.
A mildly diverting film about the benefits of appropriate dress.
First, through the form of intertitles, a dog and cat with kittens
are shown; “the animal baby arrives in the world fully dressed”,
whereas the human baby is not (a nurse is shown holding a young
baby). The film continues in this vein, weighing up the relative
benefits of clothing, giving considerable attention to informing
people not to dress young children in too many layers. Finally,
viewers are exhorted to choose modern dress as it is fashionable,
healthy, cheap and easy to make at home.
