• Short Summary

    Summary of training undertaken by FBI men in the United States of America.

  • Description

    Titles read: '"G" MEN IN TRAINING!'

    United States of America.

    Opening shots show J Edgar Hoover of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) at his desk. Various shots of 'G' men (Government men) in training. We see them inspecting an area around a dead body (dummy) for clues, checking a table of special equipment that includes several magnifying glasses, looking through microscopes at a laboratory of the Bureau of Washington, looking at enlarged fingerprints projected onto a screen, making hand and death masks in plaster and using a Helixometer device to check defects in the inside of gun barrels.

    Lastly, we see the men firing at targets in an indoor shooting range. Four men fire their guns repeatedly - one of the targets falls off the wall when they've finished.
