    Soldiers throwing loaves of bread!

  • Description

    The dough that makes the doughboys. Location of events unknown.

    Not exactly a meal going on; but bread supplies for US Army meals. Title frame The Dough that Makes the Doughboys. Shot of masses of round loaves of bread; with soldiers standing alongside. The soldiers are picking up loaves and throwing them! Looks like a food fight!.

    Shot of another group of guys standing on other side of the giant pile of bread; catching more loaves and adding them to that side of the pile. So there is a method in the madness - they are moving bread from one side to the other. But it seems more like a game; anyway I'm sure it's a lot of fun. Pan right showing pile and some of the throwers. Covered army truck goes by in BG.

    CU soldier sitting holding a loaf of bread; with a serious; contemplative look. Suddenly he looks up with a smile; shakes his head in a delighted way like oh such joy; as he tears a loaf apart and starts cramming it into his mouth. Then he starts laughing like crazy; hits himself with the bread; etc.
