Hitler's motorcade drives through the streets of Linz. Spectators wave Nazi flags. Aerial shot of Hitler's car as it crosses a bridge decorated with large swastikas. Medium shot of a crowd of children waving flags. Another aerial shot reveals the huge crowds that have come to greet Hitler. 02:00:32 Shot of a flag in a forest setting. The camera pans down to reveal Hitler walking at the head of a large crowd, surrounded by spectators. He salutes a group of civilian men holding shovels. The crowd salutes and a group of men follow Hitler to some open railroad cars. Hitler shovels dirt into one of the cars. Another crowd shot is followed by a shot of trees as they are cut down. A small train moves slowly down the tracks. It is decorated with a swastika and the open cars are filled with dirt. This might be the groundbreaking of the Linz location of the Hermann Goering Werke. 02:01:41 Hitler reviews uniformed men on a different occasion, although the location is probably still Linz (as identified by an intertitle). One of the cameramen may be Walter Frentz. Hitler's motorcade on the street, surrounded by crowds. People dressed in local costume march down the street; a few salute. 02:02:47 Good shots of Hitler in his car. He receives flowers from little girls. Hitler reviews uniformed men, including police and members of the Reichsarbeitsdienst. Himmler is with him in one shot. 02:04:52 The location changes to Vienna, where crowds stand in front of the parliament building. Close view of Hitler, with Artur Seyss-Inquart behind him. Hermann Goering disembarks from a train, surrounded by a crowd of saluting men. More shots of Goering as he leaves a building, greets a little girl, rides down the street, and reviews troops. 02:06:23 a camerman atop a moving car can be seen in the background.
