Capture of Trenches at Candaba (film #55 on Edison Film Archive. Also, film #15 on The Spanish American War in Motion Pictures). [Category: Early Film & TV]

Some soldiers, probably Cuban, fire from a trench until it is overrun by American soldiers. How did Edison’s cameraman get into the trench before the Americans took it? At any rate, this has historical interest as documentation of the Spanish American War. An 1899 Edison film.

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