    German prisoners at Verdun. France.

    World War One. German prisoners taken during Battle of Verdun. Pathe propaganda says the enemy's morale is broken; and they are readily surrendering. Shot of French guards leading row of German prisoners through a ditch in the field. Then shot of the prisoners sitting on ground; behind barbed wire fence; pan across the men; most of whom stare at the camera with blank expression; but a guy at the end smiles warmly when the camera comes to him.

    (G 400 A)
