Cigarettes in the Making,
published in 1950 by Imperial Tobacco Company
of Canada Ltd.

“The film is called: PROSTHETICS YES—BIONICS MAYBE??? Certainly the film amply demonstrates that there is no shortage of new appliances or techniques, to make the role of the amputee a little easier if he can wear a prosthesis. Hence the first part of the title,—very positively—PROSTHETICS YES.”
