Brittain on Brittain - Program 11: The Dionne Quintuplets

Top of page

Interviews with director Donald Brittain are interwoven with the best of his documentary films in this series. In 1934 the Dionne Quintuplets were born. When the girls were just infants, the premier of Ontario issued a court order removing them from parental care. Cut off from society and their family, over-publicized and viewed twice daily in a special viewing compound, they grew up as prize exhibits.
