1938: "three little kittens"

Back in the late thirties, the educational film company known as ERPI (Educational Research Products, Inc.) created a short production on kitten life:  Three Little Kittens.  So follow along with these barn kittens and their mom for ten minutes as they are born in a nest of hay, open their eyes, stagger about, get kicked out by a sassy hen, and grow up and get jobs.  I believe the film meant to show children a bit of the maturity process for kittens, but our modern eyes will see different things.  No cat gets hurt, all is done sensibly.  And the last couple of kitten closeups were likely not intended to be as beautiful as they are.
