Pythagoreans combine math and music. The pentagram and the golden ratio. The secret mark identifies a friend. Donald Duck joins the club.
Donald in Mathmagic Land (1959)
In one of the clearest explanations of the golden ratio and it's real world applications and occurences, this animated short film presents the pentagram stripped of its spiritualist and mystical accretions and revealed as a simple symbol for a mathematical sequence.
Directed at a post-war Baby Boomer generation of junior high school students, in an attempt to kindle an interest in mathematics, emphasis is placed on pop music and the secret society of Pythagoreans and their recognition sign, the pentagram.
