The United States Army Eighth Air Force 351st Bombardment Group shooting for the film 'Combat America.' Slate indicates these segments are filmed at RAF Station Molesworth, England. Several repeated takes for the An Army Air Forces film “Combat America.” An Air Forces Captain drops from the bottom hatch of a B-17 bomber and is approached by Captain Clark Gable, who begins reading to him from some papers. The scene is stopped and repeated again, when filming continues with Gable questioning and conversing with the Captain. Their conversation seems jovial, with both smiling from time to time. They both appear to be holding similar papers, and Gable occasionally makes a motion that suggests they are discussing the film script and associated actions. A Clapper is actuated for Take 4, in which Gable commences reading, again, from his papers, directing his comments at the B-17 Captain, and repeating the earlier hand motions. The final take is a closeup of the B-17 Captain, standing close to the aircraft, and appearing to answer questions. Clip ends with wild shots of flight boots and feet of someone walking.
