Comparative Tests on A Human and A Chimpanzee Infant of Approximately the Same Age, Part 2
US 1932

This scientific film documents tests, in which human and chimp infants have to solve the same tasks. It bears witness to the early period of euphoria over the close kindredship between gorillas and humans. Although things seem otherwise, this was no laughing matter for the primates. Pennsylvania State University was famous for these types of test.
