• Short Summary

    Japanese soldier blows himself up with hand grenade.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "DRAMA IN "STILL" LIFE".

    Writing appears on screen:

    "Sometimes a cine-camera is caught without a loaded camera when an exciting event occurs. One film-man - near Buna, made a "still" picture record of an incident so dramatic that we set aside precedent and present it as taken."

    New Guinea.

    Various shots of Australian troops in dugouts on the New Guinea beach. Succession of still photographs showing Japanese soldier coming out of sea with hands in the air. Unknown to his captives he has a grenade in his hand. He pulls pin and the last still shows just ripples on the water.
