    Unidentified pen in The Road to Perdition used by Tom Hanks' character Michael Sullivan. Could be a Vacumatic.

    History Channel's "The Machines That Built America" - episode: Power Tool Showdown. Raymond DeWalt uses a Jinhao X450 to sign a contract in 1949.

    This is particularly egregious because they are the History Channel and it makes their research look shoddy and unreliable. I am tempted to start a letter writing campaign to tell them off.

    History is one of my passions. I have seen some shoddy work and mistakes in some of their productions, especially those with reenactments. -- Costuming especially. In one recent show re-enactment, a WWI British Army staff officer was dressed in a WWII vintage American Army uniform topped off with a Sam Browne belt worn incorrectly.

    I catch them quite often using language and modern terminology that did not exist in the time period they are portraying.

    When i trained as a historian, we never discussed military uniforms. Wars, sure. Uniforms, never.

    It would have been possible to write a paper or thesis or even a book on the topic, but to get the green light, it would have to be more than a chronicle of uniforms.

    I suspect you weren't studying military history specifically?

    Speaking to practical application of most anything, there is a saying that form follows function. Military uniforms serve functions far beyond clothing a soldier, aviator, or sailor. The tactics used also influence uniforms. In some very real ways, tactics drive the design of uniforms. Why are pockets placed where they are is answered by what one carries in them, what else needs to be carried and where, and even what one does and how one fights. Uniforms evolve as how wars are fought evolves. For instance, British Empire officers' uniforms differed from the other ranks uniforms so that they were easily recognisable (to each other and their soldiers) in those days when battlefield communication primarily depended upon handwritten messages and runners. British Empire soldiers' tunics had a pocket on the inside of the bottom for an easily reachable battle dressing. Current American Army combat uniforms have pockets that are easily reachable while seated in an armoured vehicle as well as having a pen pocket on the left sleeve just above the cuff since chest pockets are covered by body armour, and soldiers have an individual first aid kit carried on their body armour or webbing.

    History, military or otherwise, begins with analysis. Until then itís just minutiae. I would tell students who wanted to write about fashion or Zero fighters or whatever that they would have to make me care about those things by relating them to social and political processes and developments. That can be done ó and with military uniforms, too of course ó but without that connection, itís not history.

    And uniforms are not the least of it! Movies get more basic things like language and social structure wrong. Often the more outlandishly stylized films hit on more historical truth than the more conventional presentations. For example, Blazing Saddles was more true to history despite flouting realism than a thousand other westerns.

    A significant movie-adjacent moment: Bob Iger, then CEO of Disney, signing the agreement to acquire Lucasfilm in 2012. Iger appears to be using a silver piston-filler while George Lucas has a Montblanc ballpoint or rollerball. Make of that what you will.

    This post may help. Sadly there's no screenshot.
