  • Short Summary

    French Ambulance Dogs are given gas masks.

  • Description

    France.

    World War One; chemical warfare; animals. French ambulance dogs fitted with gas masks. Opens with shot of a mist covering most of the screen; then barely visible; a collie dog comes running out of the smoke; like Lassie. CU of French guy putting mask on his dog; tying strings behind dog's head--this all looks pretty silly but better that than have the pooch killed by poison gas. CU side view man petting dog.
