This issue of the Army-Navy Screen Magazine opens with a dramatization of the story of stolen money from the University of Virginia (00:18). $500 is stolen from a dormitory, and Charles Randall is wrongfully accused and expelled. The secretive Seven Society at Virginia, a powerful weapon for good, looks into Charles Randall’s conviction and believe that he is an innocent victim. The Seven investigate another student they believe to be the real thief, which results in that student confessing to the crime. The second feature is on “automatic writing,” or doodling (03:20). Different styles of doodling indicate different personality types, and the film shows which types famous people such as Clark Gable, Myrna Loy, and Robert Taylor, Lana Turner, and Mickey Rooney fall into. The film shows authentic scribbling from George Washington (04:43), Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin D. Roosevelt as well. The final subject of this episode is the history of men’s clothes (05:18). The film explains the stories (real or fabled) behind various styles, such as the splits in the backs of coats (for riding horses), the advent of the lapel, why the lowest button of the vest is left undone, and why there is a row of buttons on jacket sleeves. The section concludes that men who dress the same are easier to control, as it shows footage of men in uniforms marching in time.
