Markus Napp is correct: I’m not sure discovering something happens for the first time is the same thing as being “major and scarcely acknowledged pressure.”
You might remember the anecdote about Walt Disney being approached by the War Department with a “request” to fill a production order for 90,000 feet of film on behalf of the Navy.
Disney had been producing 27,000 feet of film a year.
Streamlining production and working at “cost” lead to great efficiencies — by one count, 1943 saw Disney producing 204,000 feet of film. 96% of it was for the government.
