Experiments in the Revival of Organisms 'Of course technique is everything...' Introduced by renowned Marxist scientist and geneticist JBS Haldane, this Soviet film depicts the artificial maintenance of individual organs, a severed dog's head, and finally a dog in toto (excuse the pun).

MrMoonPie: I stand corrected. I was after that phrase, which gives the film its proper chill, but alas I remembered it incorrectly.

In toto. Ha ha haaa, hee hee.
Heh.

Oh yeah, and this is creepy. What about the one guy's comment about the artificial heart, etc? Is this really just circulating blood, or did they actually revive these animals?

Reminds one of the very fine (and somewhat prophetic) book by Mr. Lewis, That Hideous Strength.
