  • Short Summary

    A little girl and boy pose with war bonds to encourage people to buy more.

  • Description


    Children's Victory Bonds. 2 small kids - a little girl; and an even younger boy - standing at door to car; lady inside hands them something; young woman (nurse? - not in uniform) stands holding door open. They walk away.

    Another view of the 2 cute kids walking up hill from car; clutching their bonds. Next; they stand outside shop; a lady takes the boy's bond, looks at it; returns it. CU the kids; stand in doorway; holding hands; and examining the pieces of paper; which look like paper money; too.

    ECU the girl is bending over; holding a letter (?) and reading it to her brother. There's some trouble in getting him to pay much attention; which is pretty funny - she has to keep jerking him back for the sake of the little movie here. This little girl is all business! - looks very serious. After a while she holds the paper up facing camera; pointing with a pencil.

    GV these 2 children; in a group of others. The girl starts handing out some papers and all the crowd of kids reach for them. Ends w/ repeat of 2 earlier shots.

    World War One. home front; fund-raising.
