As Schenck’s testimony was about to begin, McFarland told the mogul he could have his counsel beside him as he speaks. “We are perfectly confident that Mr. Schenck can take care of himself,” Willkie responded as he waived the right. “Despite the newspaper comments,” noted Senator Worth Clark, “you have nothing to fear in the way of unfairness from this committee.” Worth Clark continued to assure Scheck that he would get a fair shake and that politicians around town have nothing but praise for the studio mogul. The day’s line of questioning largely deviated from the talk of film propaganda. The isolationist senators were more interested in pegging Scheck to show that Hollywood was indeed a monopoly. Much of the day served as a useful history for the senators that knew nothing about how the film industry worked.
