To fool the flu, during a epidemic in 1937, movie kisses were rehearsed behind antiseptic masks. Since each kiss must be rehearsed about 20 times before the cameras turn, it was said that four out of five flu germs would be pre-vented from spreading. Of course, these masks were taken off when the camera was rolling. Stanley Morner and Betty Furness are shown here.
