March of Time -- outtakes -- American soldiers in Le Mans, France
American troops in Le Mans, France. They congregate in the streets of the town and drink at outdoor cafes. Nice street scenes with troops and French civilians interacting happily. A group of several African American soldiers talk to a French colonial troop; they shake his hand and offer him a cigarette, which he accepts. American nurses look at dresses in a store window. Exteriors and interiors of shops. The exterior and interior of the Bar Americain, where a smiling woman pours drinks for American soldiers. Young French women exiting the palace of justice. Americans and French people shopping for food and other goods using ration coupons. The dope sheet indicates that the store is a famous one called "Felix Potin." A French woman sells the newspaper "Le Maine Libre." A female vendor sells pictures of Charles de Gaulle.
