  • Description

    There is a much longer version of this story on 3467.05 which may include cuts.

    Item title reads: "France acclaims Atlantic flight hero. Amazing scenes as crowd go frantic with delight on arrival of Captain Lindbergh after 33 and a half hours flight from New York."

    Le Bourget, Paris

    French and US flags are draped outside a window, and three men appear. One is flight hero, Lindbergh, and another steps up to call for hip hip hooray (same cheer in France).
    Cars arrive outside a building and then the US flag is seen in front of a window. M/S street scene with police and crowds.
    'Spirit of St. Louis - Lindbergh stands in front of the plane . M/S plane nose on - crowds around, followed by side shots of the propeller in motion. Lindbergh nods and poses for the camera.

    L/S as crowds press forward in street - dark shots - night - people running (could be war or some kind of flight from danger) a mass of people are seen - picked up in beams of a search light - a man climbs a pole.
