Well Shot Film from Edison

U.S. Troops and Red Cross in the Trenches Before Calcoocan (1899)

During the Spanish-American War it wasn't rare for real footage to be released as movies and there were also several studios who were just filming war movies. This Edison film is a bit more ambitious than a lot of their work from this period.

The camera is set in the trench as we see a group of soldiers shooting at the ending. They get out to charge while some Red Cross workers come into the frame to carry off a wounded soldier. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking about this film but it's certainly entertaining. It lasts for under two minutes but there's no doubt that the camera angle was quite good and I especially liked show it was shot.
