Foie Gras and Kobe Beef a la 1962

Check out this excerpt from the 1962 "shockumentary" Mondo Cane (A Dog's World) that, following a brief vignette showing baby chickens being color-dyed, shows geese being force fed and cattle being massaged and sated with beer. Although I was too young to see this when it played in New York in the early '60's (I did not get to see it until the early '70's)  I'm old enough to remember the brouhaha surrounding this early animal rights flick. Today, I doubt it would rustle a lace curtain before an open window.
