Response to Selatius (Reply #20)

34. Thanks for posting this Britannica film

I'm almost certain I saw this clip, many, many years ago. As I watched the film you posted for what I believed was the first time, I suddenly recognized the scene beginning at 6'50" when the teacher is told by the professor that students cannot think for themselves. I remembered thinking at the time how much the scene reminded me of a few teachers I had in the 1960s who didn't respect or understand the inquisitive nature of young adults. They had a kind of "sit down and shut up" attitude when kids questioned authority (also, who could forget the actress's portrayal of the teacher!)

Also, the Pledge recitation at 1'00" was intriguing. Since this film was produced pre-McCarthy, "Under God" had not been added yet.

Thanks, again
