  • Short Summary

    Footage of activity aboard US warship.

  • Description

    American Navy sailors on battleship. Location of events unknown.

    World war one. Boats and ships. Various shots of sailors on ship. Opens with shot of row of sailors walking up the gangplank onto huge ship; other sailors on board on 2 decks in BG. Pan along sailors lined up on deck; above row of some of ship's guns. Ship heading away. This looks like a different; smaller ship. But a cool shot of sailors arranged all lined up along deck and all up rigging and ladders -- in their white uniforms it makes them very decorative. Then finally a GV of the huge menacing battleship with giant towers; smokestacks and all sorts of other stuff rising up from it.
