Short Film Saturday: The Story of Menstruation

Yes, if you can believe it this is a Walt Disney production. It is one of the more fascinating of Disney productions in many regards. Firstly, because although Disney did make educational and didactic films on occasion they were rarely on such a frank subject. The forthrightness of it in such a prudish day an age made this a rarely seen title for many years. Anyone who has had health since it became a virtually mandated class will not be stunned but taking the context of this being made in 1946 adds some surprise to the proceedings.
