See these opening credits for Slochteren aan de Lijn, a commissioned documentary from 1964 about laying gas pipes in the Netherlands, produced by famous Dutch film maker Bert Haanstra. Notice a familiar name as assistant? Yep: Paul Verhoeven. Is it the Verhoeven? I’m not 100% sure, but chronologically it would fit right in between his student films and the movie he made about the Royal Dutch Marine Corps when he was a conscript.

Strangely enough I can’t find anything about it: it isn’t mentioned anywhere, not even in Rob van Scheers’ excellent Verhoeven biography. Anyone out there who can tell if this film should be added to Verhoeven’s filmography, no matter how small his part might have been?
