          Library of Congress has only three of 8 reels, but there are copies floating around somewhere! A silent film (like all of that time), it includes actual WWI footage from the Signal Corp as well as "new" footage of the Lost Battalion survivors. The majority of the movie, though, is enacted by established actors and actresses of their time, including what might have been the last performance by Bessie Learn. The footage is shot, I beleive, at the actual locations of Camp Upton and the Pocket.
Under Construction - Please be patient!

NYC from the air - before 9/11, before WTC was built, before Empire State Building was built!
The story goes on about how the "kicker" is a know-it-all moron and the staff is glad he is going off to the war.
The "Stenographer", the "Kicker's" girlfriend, thinks she looks like a movie star, and her guy tells her she looks even better!
One Chinese-American shoots at another, both are arrested and forced into the Army. Don't worry, this movie is ahead of it's day with multi-culturism. In the end these two are heroic figures.
The rich man's son picks up his clothing at the Jewish Tailor.
Cutie pie gets ready for a visit from the kicker, but the landlady warns him to be quick on the stairs, and then just barges in on them as they are kissing. She sees them playing footsie and sends them outside for a walk.
