Description:

"Cincinnati Movie Club is producing a motion picture glamorizing the nursing profession. Had it been done for the hospitals by commercial professionals, the production would have cost more than $25,000. The film, 'Deed To Happiness,' is designed to promote interest in nursing among high school girls and alleviate the shortage of nurses in hospitals of Greater Cincinnati and Southwestern Ohio. Prints of the full color motion picture, with narration by Howard Chamberlain of VLW, are to be sold at cost to Cincinnati hospitals and screened in high schools." The Cincinnati Inquirer, May 22, 1949, 95.
