Synopsis

Everything You Wanted to Know About Sudden Birth* (*but were afraid to ask) is the amazing story of how the Berkeley police department, the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands, an Academy Award winner and Mr. Spock from TV’s Star Trek are all connected by "Sudden Birth", one of the most unintentionally hilarious and disturbing educational films ever created.

In color.

READ THIS BEFORE REQUESTING A SCREENER

The title of the film is not ironic. There is an actual baby born during this film and it is shown on screen.

Sorry for the spoilers but there it is. You have been warned.
