Film | Accession Number: 2003.483.1 | RG Number: RG-60.4409 | Film ID: 2720

Another day, showing monument/great building, two women with another German officer. Focus on one (not the same woman as shown previously), who is smiling and laughing. She tips her hat to the camera. 01:05:18 in a park. Two women from the previous scene are laughing and swinging on a swing set, standing up. An older woman speaks to them, appearing to chastise them (perhaps for standing or for swinging too high, or she wants the children to get a turn). Children in BG. Two women and the officer at a food stall of some kind. One of the women (in dark coat) feeds something to the German officer (flirtatiously). Panning shot of scenery taken from some high point above Paris. German guard at front of gate of Versailles. Camera pans to the top of the gate showing Louis XIV engraving. SS officer and the woman with light-colored jacket and hat (shown earlier) from behind as they regard the gate and the German guard. Camera shows naked female statue. Same woman in light-colored coat with an older man in civilian clothes (seen later in Stories 4411 and 4416 and in Film ID 2719) holding her arm. Pan of a river, scenery appears more village-y than Paris. 01:06:34 Soldiers march, marching band; Arc de Triomphe in BG. Camera movement jerky and focus not good. Camera shows marching soldiers with large motorcade following them. Louis Vuitton shop on the street. 01:07:46 Scene switches to INT, the two women from earlier shown modeling dresses, swimsuits. They smile, dance, and otherwise pose for the camera. At one point the blonde woman appears to be wearing only a bra on top; she twirls an open umbrella in front of her. Coffee. The officer with the glasses can be seen briefly in the background, smiling and watching them. He wears his uniform, but his shirt is unbuttoned, showing his white undershirt.
