In The Way Back (2010), there is one scene where Mr Smith is shown eating dirt from under his boot.

Picking up dirt

Eating dirt

It is continuous shot, no cuts.

    Seems like there's two options... they made clean "dirt"... or he just actually ate dirt. Does it really matter, though? – Catija May 27 '17 at 16:00

    Also, you wouldn't necessarily get illl from eating dirt. It could be that he just ate a little bit of dirt, like method acting? – Longshanks May 27 '17 at 16:28

The recipe:

You take two cups of flour, 2 eggs and some chocolate milk. You mix the two cups of flour in a bowl together with the eggs. When it's getting a mud like form, you mix in the chocolate milk until you reach the desired dirt color. You can add some sugar, depending on taste.

Cover the paste up and put it in the refrigerator until needed.

Apply to boot with a spatula and preferably walk on a clean floor before ingesting.

    While that does sound tasty, is this a recipe you've created or do you know it's what was used in this film? – Longshanks May 28 '17 at 6:15

  • @Paulie_D I asked the actor who played Mr. Smith. And he said, I quote: "You take two cups of flour, 2 eggs and some chocolate milk. You mix the two cups of flour in a bowl together with the eggs. When it's getting a mud like form, you mix in the chocolate milk until you reach the desired dirt color. You can add some sugar, depending on taste. Cover the paste up and put it in the refrigerator until needed.

  • If you can source that comment with a link then fine...otherwise it's not proof of anything. – Paulie_D May 28 '17 at 21:45
  • @stevenvanc, you asked Ed Harris? How? In person? By e-mail? You called him up? – Kyralessa Sep 1 '18 at 14:56
