So Much For So Little. An institutional Oscar-winning short documentary

Little Johnny Jones, to be born in the next year, is shown growing to a ripe, healthy old age, thanks to the efforts of his local public health officers. 

But without them, he might be one of the 5% or so that dies in the first year. The price for the public health service: about 3 cents a week.
