Movie Ad of the Week: THE BIRTH OF TRIPLETS / NO GREATER SIN (1972)

Thanks to the inclusion of c-section, afterbirth and circumcision footage in full color, Claude Alexander's legendary birth-of-a-baby roadshow from the early 1950s was still getting playdates as late as 1975. This ad, from the program's Decatur, GA roll-through in 1972, is from the same pressbook Alexander designed a decade earlier. Our friends at Something Weird offer the definitive version of this show on DVD-R, as well as informative liner notes on its history, here.

It rolled through central Nebraska in the fall of 1970, teamed up with Prudence and the Pill.

Similar antics tacked onto Jerry Gross's Teenage Mother during it's later re-releases. Details here:
