Authentic 1938 production (originally on 2 8mm reels) of mortician college students filming their projects. The footage shows them working on cadavers using Restorative Art techniques to restore bodies badly damaged from accident or disease.
The scenes are graphic and show the students going through the process of analyzing what needs to be done and perfoming the demi-surgery. You will see -- in detail -- the preparation of the bodies, the resculpting of the faces and bodies, make-up or cosmetization, and then the final presentation in the casket.
There are about a dozen of these examples, plus extra footage showing plaster cast making on the students, sculpting heads, practice make-up, first aid, CPR, and a bit of horsing around.
