Teeth

The stipulation that conscripts had to have twelve teeth does underline the difficulty of making any accurate recreation of the past on film. There just aren't enough short toothless people to fill the ranks, and everybody in, say, Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers has standard modern sets of 32.

I note in Atkinson, too, that Patton took the precaution of removing everybody's ammunition before allowing Roosevelt to review the troops.

Watching the Grand Final, which appears in the wet to be largely a matter of competitive falling over. Even so, good teeth.
