Granny gets an MRI, from http://www.winanmri.com
Well, this is a little different. Clay County Medical Center, a 25-bed American hospital, has entered a contest to win a new $800,000 magnetic resonance imaging system (MRI). The competition is by public vote on a website, and CCMC has contributed a silent film spoof, Granny gets an MRI. No, it isn’t very good, but it has oddness on its side. To catch a sight of it, and who knows maybe vote for it, go to www.winanmri.com and type in ‘granny’ into the search box. It’s currently lying third…
Well, what do expect from healthcare professionals? They aren’t filmmakers, but they did an entertaning job with what they had to work with (as well as limited time-frame). I’m voting every day at every computer I can find, as I’d like to see this small, rural hospital win something big for the community.
Fair point. Actually, having ‘granny’ played by a man gives the film an unexpected authentic feel, as I’ve many a silent film with similar performances. It’s very enterprising for such a small hospital, and I certainly hope that they win.
