There is a record in OCLC (#37998315) for a videocassette version of
Are you fit to marry?. The record says it is a 1927 silent based on the
book The black stork by Jack Lait. Nine libraries hold it and in the
publisher is listed as John C. Allen, Inc. If it is not still for sale,
you might be able to borrow it from one of these libraries.

The summary note is: A doctor is intrigued as to why attention is given
to breeding of animals, but not to breeding of humans. He feels eugenic
laws should be passed to prevent marriages among the "unfit." He tries
to pressure his prospective son-in-law to have a complete physical exam
before marrying his daughter. The doctor is eventually shot by one of
his human breeding experiments.
