E G and G. Edgerton, Germeshausen, and Grier. Edgerton of MIT became a household name with frozen images made with electronic flashes. 'Fastax'-type cine cameras with continuous narrow bands of film and prisms to keep the image sharp must have been another expertise. Very fast shutters are less important because most objects aren't bright enough, The short film here (may be incomplete) is a collection of scraps: it may have been made as a sales tool, or perhaps to point up areas for improvement, though my best guess is to show a selection of effects to be used in fake 'nuclear tests'. 'Lookout Mountain' may have been fed their material. My best guess is this company was Jewish, and kept the lid firmly closed on any speculations that nukes didn't exist, were over-rated, not dangerously radioactive, and all the rest. The film is certainly ambiguous and open to several interpretations. My guess is it was a promotional demo. . It was a techie US equivalent of the Jewish film crews which faked German atrocities and took care to ignore Jewish mass murders in the USSR . Note: original format wasn't standard; playback may be better when more elongated . Sound track is Mozart's K522 Musical Joke. (I'd have preferred Walton's Facade, but didn't want copyright issues).
