Behind the Freedom Curtain - 1957 film about mechanical voting machines

This 1957 video promoting mechanical voting machines is beyond awesome.

I tried to embed it, but the embed code was too complex, you can see it at


For those of us not experienced with US elections, it's also a reminder of their incredible complexity.
My favorite part is when they talk about how the machine cannot make an error, and is protected by the incredible security of... a key.

Another gem from the Prelinger Archives, the video was on the front page of Archive.org today.
