Rolling in the Dough

This is in honor of a few friends from college who are premiering a feature film called “Doughboy”. More on that in a second but first…Emmitsburg has one of these doughboys, one of 110 that can be found around the nation. Emmitsburg’s doughboy, the popular name for a WWI foot soldier, stands at the end of West Main Street in its own little grassy park about 10 feet square on the lawn of the Emmit House, once a hotel that frequently hosted Maryland governors, but now an apartment house. It was erected in 1927.

Now onto “Doughboy” the movie. The Hollywood production of “Doughboy,” set and shot in Wheeling, W.Va., will premiere nationwide in the Friendly City on the evening of Thursday, Aug. 18, at the Highland Marquee Cinemas (Triadelphia), a day before the production opens in select W.Va. markets. Doughboy is the story of an apathetic 16 year-old boy whose family moves to West Virginia from New York City. He is sentenced to perform community service in a veterans’ home for vandalizing a World War I statue. As a result of his time at the home, he begins to realize the sacrifices of our soldiers.
