Grass Diet (film #2 in the Makeovers, Diets & Fitness section of WPA Film Library). [Category: Hollywood]

British newsreel footage from the 40s about a woman who eats a health food diet consisting of grass, accompanied by raw fruits and vegetables. They actually show the woman picking the grass from a vacant lot. Since the footage is in black and white, the grass looks dirty, even after she washes it. Nowadays, of course, it would be laden with pesticides. I don’t care how much it might extend my life, I am not eating grass!!

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
