    i was looking through TDH prepro3 album and was wondering what this was inside the rf lens but no search results yielded a story or anything about it. i thought it might be a picture from Raiders?

    I don't know. It looks like a group of guys, wielding large knives, on a beach or in the desert. That building should tell it all if someone could recognize it. That and the empty fruit stand in the back.

    It it almost looks like Omaha Beach in Private Ryan, but of course that hadn't been made yet.

    That looks like a shot from Lawrence of Arabia. It might not be this exact moment, but I'm reminded of when they attack Aqaba..

    I don't think it's present in all of them, just PP3.

    Edit:

    The more I look at it it does look Middle Eastern:

    It appears that someone in the cluster on the right is raising up a rifle.

    Yeah, Enfield... early model.

    Edit:

    Maybe the "Magazine Lee–Enfield":

    We had always heard Lawrence of Arabia as well, but I don't think anyone has actually ever IDed it.

    I know from the more recent thread on TDH it ain't Lawrence. Or Raiders. I can't find the older thread at TDH where it was actually identified. The time index was posted and everything. Still looking. My search-fu is stronger than this, dammit...

    I went through Lawrence of Arabia (great movie) but couldn't find anything resembling it unfortunately. I was going to take a screen grab and print it on transparency.

    I remember thinking it might be Patton but I haven't rewatched it yet.

    That was my thinking, too; if it wasn't Lawrence, it might be Patton.
