NY Shelled on Movie Screen

The Shelled Scatters Doves of Peace section walks through the making of "The Battle Cry for Peace." The meeting takes place at a hotel, a flock of Dove is released when the alarm sounds then a shell crashes through the wall. During the film people such as Charles Richman, and Norma Talmadge is on set helping along with 25,000 National Guard Troops and 500 G.A.R veterans.
Now that it is done, it is not a big hit in the motion picture. I think the process in making the film was a little dramatic with so many supporters concdering it didnt do so well.

Why did you choose this article? What made it significant to you? What does it tell us about the road to WWI? I am not sure what you point is here.
