Boers Bringing in British Prisoners (film #31 on Edison Film Archive). [Category: Early Film & TV]

A bunch of soldiers on horseback escort a bunch of weary-looking soldiers on foot, presumably the prisoners. A slice of the Boer War, though not a particularly interesting one. Still, we don’t have much of a filmed record of this war, so that gives it some historical interest. A 1900 Edison film.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: N/A. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
