A Psychological Retrospective

Echoing the disturbing findings of the infamous Milgram experiment, this ABC News program sets up a psychological test in which an authority figure urges men and women to inflict pain on others. The program also analyzes the 1971 Stanford prison experiment as well as the 2004 hoax in which a McDonald's manager and her fiance—directed by a caller impersonating a police officer—strip-searched and abused an employee. Original footage from these occurrences is included, along with present-day commentary from Dr. Philip Zimbardo, who designed the Stanford experiment. Grades 10 and up. Closed captioned. Color. 36 minutes. Films for the Humanities. ©2007.
