I’ve seen firsthand that the warrior spirit is not directly proportional to how many pull-ups you can do. … In my opinion, you keep the standards very high and you maintain one standard. There shouldn’t be two standards for women and men, there should be a standard for this job: To do this job, you should have to do these things. And those requirements should be job-specific and not arbitrarily high in order to specifically keep women out.
—  Maj. Mary Jennings Hegar, speaking with Terry Gross about inequality in the military 

1943: Burgess explains how an English pub differs from American saloons. This educational documentary (which was narrated, written, and co-directed by Burgess) was made to introduce American soldiers to Britain during World War II.
