Clues to Adventure (1949)
This short dramatizes how disparate events in history contributed to the adoption of three provisions in the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights. The events (and the affected Constitutional provisions) are 1) The political basis for the nursery rhyme 'Hush-a-Bye Baby' (freedom of speech); 2) The trial of newspaper publisher John Peter Zenger (freedom of the press); and 3) the unsolved mystery of the 'Man in the Iron Mask' (prohibition of the infliction of 'cruel and unusual punishments').- Written by David Glagovsky <firstname.lastname@example.org>
