The Dionne Quintuplets were the entertainment of their time. Their names are Annette, Emilie, Yvonne, Cecile, and Marie Dionne. This Heritage Minute shows snapshots of their lives and retells their world. As children, their lives were on display, they never got any privacy and they were taken away from their parents. They were victims of the demands from society and had no choice. These helpless children were a source of diversion and show during the difficult times of the economic depression. Our video opens with original pictures of the quintuplets. Subsequently, an acting scene depicts the Dionne Quintuplet's life in Quintland. It attempts to convey just unfairly they were treated—they never led normal childhood. They were tested and observed like monkeys in a zoo, as the general public gawked at what they did and how they did things. The next filmed scene shows a family reunion, where the girls, at age nine, met their parents for the first time. It was absolutely cruel the manner in which the adorable girls were handled, but at the time, the Ontario government did what they thought was best for both parties. Enjoy!

Newsreel footage from 1953 on the Dionne quintuplets.
Tribute to Yvonne, Cecile, Annette, Marie and Emilie Dionne. The Dionne Quintuplets were born in 1934 and were the only surviving set of quintuplets to date at that time. They are the only known identical set of female quints in history. The girls were taken by the Canadian government and made wards of the Crown because their parents were poor and it was deemed they were "unfit". Dr Roy Defoe, who delivered the girls, was offered position of guardian by the Canadian government. He became "Papa" to the five girls. The Quintland Hospital was built across the street from the Dionne's farm house and the girls were exhibited there several times a day in a zoo-like setting for the public. They were housed in the hospital and parental visits were strongly discouraged and often downright forbidden. When the girls were nine, their parents succeeded in getting their girls back, but their story did not end happily. In later years, the girls accused their mother of being harsh with them and their father of sexual abuse. They were often treated as one unit - one child in five bodies, rather than individuals. They would struggle with psychological issues all their lives because of their childhood experiences. Film footage used is from Million Dollar Babies as well as some 1930's archival footage and footage from The Making of Million Dollar Babies.

Million Dollar Babies is a 1994 movie that tells the real story of the Dionne Quintuplets, born in Canada, 1934. They were taken away from their parents for nine years to live in a hospital built only for them under the government care. Meanwhile they were the most famous children in the thirties appearing in every kind of commercials, movies and public views. The music is Mad World, original by Tears for fears, and sung by Gary Jules in this version.
This is a video of when the English Royalty went to Canada. One of the places visited was North Bay, the birth place of the Dionne Quintuplets, with 17 years old at that time.
The Dionne Quintuplets, the first identical quintuplets to survive infancy, wore these dresses for a CBC radio interview in 1940, when they were only six years old. These pretty pink dresses are in a style typical for little girls of the period, with generous smocking on the bodice, embroidered collars, puffy sleeves and piped seams. The dresses recall a period in Canadian history when the quintuplet girls, Marie, Yvonne, Émilie, Cécile, and Annette, captivated and enthralled a public anxious for something novel and uplifting. They became a centerpiece during the Great Depression, garnering massive amounts of media attention. Four months after their birth, Ontario made the girls wards of the state, and built a nursery called Quintland, with an observation gallery for millions of tourists to see the quintuplets at play. The significance of the birth of these quintuplets is magnified by the fact that they were born to a humble French-Canadian farm family in rural Ontario. The delicate dresses remind us of the rags-to-riches story of the family, but also, the frailty of Quints' legacy. In 1998, after a long period of negotiation, the remaining sisters received a monetary settlement from the Ontario government for what they justifiably perceived as the exploitation of their rights as individuals for material gain.

Transcript: Marie Dionne Enters A Convent This story begins with a clothesline in Callendar, Ontario, 19 years ago. Its the story of the Dionne quintuplets, the worlds most famous babies. These are the very first films ever made of the newly born Annette, Yvonne, Marie, Emilie, and Cecile. Through the magic of motion pictures they will grow up into womanhood before your eyes. But for one of the quints at least, the excitement is just too tiring. Doctor Defoe, their physician since birth, watched over them with loving care. Almost a year old now, the quints were discovering wonderful new playthings, like hands. At three, they frolicked happily in the snow, bundled up snugly against the 20 below zero cold. They seemed drawn closer together by the publicity that glared on the first recorded quintuplets to survive infancy. Soon, Yvonne became their ringleader, Emilie the comedienne, Marie the quiet one, Annette the strongest, and Cecile the singer. One day there were seven candles on the birthday cake. Five fun-loving sisters were growing, and having five times as much fun doing it. The years flew by and suddenly the quints were thirteen. And in 1950 at the age of 16, they were vivacious, poised young women. Today, at a convent in Quebec, Marie Dionne, now Sister Marie, enters into a new life as a nun. She offers a last goodbye and kiss to her sisters and to her mother ...

This video is originally mute. It shows the place where the quints lived until 1942 and the playground, actually an observatory, where they were put twice a day so the visitors could see them. It's a fact that they were more visited then the Niagara Falls. The Dionne Quintuplets, Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Emilie and Marie were born in 1934, Canada. They were the first set of quintuplets to survive infancy and until nowadays the only set of identical quintuplets.

Video provided with subtitles. Video com legendas! [en] Yvone, Annette, Cécile, Emilie and Marie became globaly known in the 1930's as the Dionne Quintuplets. They were taken away from their parents by the government of Ontario as soom as they were born. They were kept in an exclusive nursery untill they were 9 years old. Meanwhile, they were commercially and financially explored. They raised half a million dollars and they were more visited than the Niagara Falls. Nowadays, unfortunally their history has been forgotten, but I try my best to don't let this happen. Million Dollar Babies is the movie made in 1994 which tells their history. Obs: If someone wants to help me to subtitle the video I'll be very grateful Website: www.city.north-bay.on.ca [br] Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Emilie e Marie ficaram mundialmente conhecidas na década de 30 como as Quíntuplas Dionne. Retiradas dos pais pelo governo de Ontário ao nascer, foram mantidas em um berçário exclusivo até os 9 anos de idade. Durante esse tempo, foram comercialmente e financeiramente exploradas. Chegaram a arrecadar meio bilhão de dólares e eram mais visitadas que as Cataratas do Niágara. Hoje, infelizmente, sua história anda esquecida mas busco fazer com que ela não caia no completo esquecimento.
