This film gives you exactly as the title says. The camera is set up in a field and then we see a parade of marines walking by.
Obviously there's nothing here that broke grounds in regards to filmmaking but if you're a fan of these old movies then I'm sure you'll find some entertainment here. What I enjoy most about these older movies is the fact that they simply capture a moment in time and I'm sure all of the soldiers would never believe that someone would be watching this 118 years after it was made. The film works because it gives you a chance to see actual uniforms from this period as well as a close up look at their weapons.
