We Shoot Newborn Babies (Mar, 1950)
Well, the headline certainly does grab your attention. This is a gimmick MI has used before.
We Shoot Newborn Babies
by Robert Clark
WHEN I wound up my war service in the Navy five years ago, I thought all my “shooting” days were over. But now Bob Danielson and I are scrambling about like second louies on a recruiting tour rounding up a corps of expert marksmen to patrol hospitals all across America— and shoot newborn babies!
Who’s this talking—Public Enemy No. 1? No—not even No. 101. Strangely enough everyone likes having us around—doctors, nurses, parents by the thousands—even the cute little tykes themselves. And our shooting is done not with a bang-bang but with the click-click of cameras formerly installed in the wings of Navy Hellcat fighters to record split-second combat maneuvers.
