Clair, I just watched the movie, West Point, last night. Or parts of it when I didn't doze off anyway. It was a 1928 silent movie about a new cadet who meets a girl, wonders about his ability to remain a cadet, and becomes the hero of the football game when Army beat Navy. He gets the girl in the end. Filmed on location it shows the point back in 1928. People arrived and departed by boat. I didn't see Custer's ditch as far as I could tell. Probably showed a lot of cadets who later fought in WWII.
