Referring to the many varied opinions about alcohol, the film sets out to deal only with facts. The distribution and fate of the drug in the body is shown, and its anaesthetic properties affecting reasoning, inhibitions, memory, the special senses and muscular co-ordination described.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
