  • Description

    Full title reads: "Paris. 'He yielded nothing to America'. All France acclaims M. Laval as national hero, on return from conference with President Hoover."

    Paris, France.

    French Prime Minister Pierre Laval walks with his party of diplomats down the gangplank from a ship. They pose for the camera at the end of the walkway.

    Various shots of Laval receiving warm welcome. Crowds squash around him as he walks, with a bunch of flowers, along the platform at a railway station.

    A car carries the PM away from the station.
