An early experiment in motion picture film making. Film about Bombardment of Taku (aka Dagu) forts, on June 17, 1900, by Allied fleets,during the Boxer Rebellion in China. It is staged with models of battleships, and filmed in 1900, by the Edison Company. Model ships move across water contained within a model of that coastal area of China. Some are white and some black. At first they simply scurry back and forth. But they later assemble to begin firing at the Chinese land forts. A chinese Junk gets caught in the action and flees. Explosions on "land" raise much smoke and those from defenders cause white smoke and large splashes in water. Many explosions are set off with lots of smoke. The Russian ship "Gilyakwas" seen on fire and sinking.
