Abstract:

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.

"A showcase of new Army hardware in review, "Project MAN" has a double significance. M-A-N stands for Modern Army Needs. That the initials should spell out the fundamental determining factor of the quality of an army, whatever its equipment, is both intentional and highly appropriate. In addition to the display and demonstration of Army weapons and equipment, most exciting footage has been assembled to show the skills of the Army Rangers. This is not only good, strong entertainment, but it emphasizes the point that the quality of the Army--any army--depends on the quality of its great fighting men. Scenes show Rangers in simulated hand-to-hand combat, very realistically performed; a demonstration of climbing techniques, leaps from a tower with the aid of a resilient rope to reach the ground in a second's time, and finally, shots of Rangers making long cable slides past large-scale underwater explosions."--National Archives and Records Administration.
