Gut reaction.

by Andrew MacGregor


Amazon Prime: “Choke” - 60s

The last in Amazon Prime's amusing series of films offers one of the most dramatic applications of the Heimlich manoeuvre we've seen for some time. As a man chokes on his dinner, his fellow restaurant patrons can only watch in abject horror - save for one fearless diner.

Wrapping her arms around the victim like a medically trained bear, the protagonist blows and thrusts as if trying to exorcise a demon, let along a piece of food. The fact that we hear none of the carnage - only another soothing backing track - heightens the comic effect, as does the source of her sudden medical gumption.
