March of Time -- outtakes -- Swedish ship Drottningholm arrives in US with diplomatic officers leaving Axis nations

Film | Accession Number: 2005.486.1 | RG Number: RG-60.4379 | Film ID: 2798

Shots of the Swedish-American ship Drottningholm. The ship bears the Swedish flag and the word "DIPLOMAT." Passengers wave from the decks. People disembark from the ship, including diplomatic officers from Axis countries George Wadsworth from the State Department and Curtis T. Everett, listed on the dope sheet as a diplomatic officer to Vichy, disembark from the ship. It is not clear which individuals they are in the crowd. A man speaks at a microphone -- perhaps he is the third man identified on the dope sheet, S. Azacarte of Mexico. Men stand among several pieces of luggage. A label on one suitcase identifies the owner as George Wadsworth. Another label reads: United States Official Party Rome, Italy. A close-up of another suitcase label identifies the passenger as C.T. Everett and the point of origin as Vichy, France. More shots of luggage being offloaded and dark shots of people collecting their suitcases.
