Tribute to Brave Men
22 October 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This short film introduces us to the brave camermen from World War 2,some of whom it is pointed out have been killed in action.One of the points of interest is the equipment that they are shown as using.It is extremely unwieldy as is clockwork.The Germans had much more sophisticated equipment which i believe was driven by an electric motor and more on the lines of a Mitchell arriflex.American newsreel men also had much more advanced equipment.What this film does not concern itself with was the accuracy of newsreels namely how much was original material and how much was faked.However i would guess that much of the material in this short was shot at the front.However these newsreels lack the immediacy of news footage that we so much take for granted today.
