Testing Bullet Proof Glass In The 1930s
In the 1930's, it was considered OK to use your wife in the testing of bullet proof glass...
Now this is risky business! I mean, bullet proof glass does a good enough job nowadays, but given the era in which this clip was filmed, these people were certainly playing with fire.
Shot in the early 1930’s, this man tests an early version of bullet proof glass by getting his wife to hold the sheet of glass in front of her face while he shoots directly at it.
I’m wondering if the gunman was slightly disappointed that the ‘experiment’ worked? Now I come to think about it, perhaps it was the wife that was hoping for a failure, I mean why else would she have agreed!
