Summary
In the first newsclip, American soldiers release gas from a tank and soldiers in a trench remove the fumes with tools that look like shovels. In the second newsclip, which appears to be a dramatic recreation, American and German soldiers engage in hand-to-hand combat. A nurse attends to a soldier in a hospital. In the third newsclip, members of the Royal School of Riding in Vienna, Austria, put their horses through their paces as they practice their fancy equine footwork. In the fourth newsclip, scenes of Dresden are shown and then the camera takes a boat trip on the Elbe and views the magnificent cliffs along the river. In the fifth newsclip, Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney warm up for their championship bout on September 23, 1926 in Sesquicentennial Stadium in Philadelphia. The crowds wait outside the stadium and then pour in to take their seats. The two boxers enter the ring. Federal regulations prevent showing the actual fight, which Tunney wins to become the champion. In the sixth newsclip, the biggest crowd ever to attend a sporting event fills Soldier Field in Chicago on September 22, 1927 to watch Tunney and Dempsey fight for the title again. The boxers enter the ring, but Federal regulations still prevent showing the bout. In the seventh round, Tunney is on the mat, but he gets up and the fight goes the full ten rounds. Tunney wins the decision.
