In this reenactment, Louis Pasteur performs his famous sheep experiment as he develops the vaccine.MS of a bunch of men in top hats; one plays with his beard. Shots of clusters of men talking. Cut to a sheep being pulled out of a pen, then being inoculated with anthrax in CU. Shot of an experiment being performed as the skeptical men look on. Shot of sheep laying on the floor. All the sheep that were vaccinated survive the inoculation, while the sheep that were not vaccinated do not survive the inoculation. Men raise their hats to Pasteur has he walks through the crowd. Fade to black, then back in on Pasteur preparing to take a sample. CU of a rabid dog’s face; his snout is in a muzzle and foam is on his mouth.
