The Invention of the American Football Helmet. This very funny clip shows a man testing his American Football helmet invention - he thinks it will prevent fatalaties and injuries. He gets some men to kick him in the head and whack him on the head with a baseball bat before he runs head first in to a wall. Filmed in 1932.
