THE MAN H'HO aiftDE IT The man who supervised thn making of the film. Lieut.-Col David MacDonnld, is head of the British Army Film Unit, and the man svjio h-ouglil the film to Washington. He is an unassuming little Scotsman, somewhat nervous and Inclined to walk about with his anus clasped in front of him. He learned movie-making during an eight-year stopover on hS wanderings all over the world. He was everything from an extra to an assistant dircclor, nnd he returned to London In 1937 with an American wife to become one of the top directors In the Brilish Isles.. Perhaps the most spectacular of the shots made by Colonel MacDonald's men in ihe advance of General Montgomery's Eighth Army across Africa nrc of Ihe nl e ht barrage which opened the attack on Rommel's positions in western tgypt. There were no Irlch lights no studio props. Only flashes of guns in drsert night. Half of Colonel MacDonald's pho- tograph'o unit.
