Storyline

A band leader in full dress and cap, waving a baton, leads a nine-member brass band out onto the stage. Dressed to the nines with high hats, the band forms two rows of four or five chaps across as the band leader turns toward them to direct. As they play, each one swings his instrument and moves his head from side to side in time with the music, while the band leader conducts with both arms spreading widely.

Band Drill (1894)

*** (out of 4)

This Edison film runs a very short 20-seconds but from a historic point of view it remains quite entertaining. In the short running time we see a group of men performing a section from the play "The Milk White Flag", which was apparently very popular back in the day. Not knowing much about bands I really can't say too much on what you're actually seeing but those with a fancy for these types of film will do doubt want to see this.

On DVD from Image or available online at countless sites.
