Star Item
  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Title reads: "La Mort Du President Doumergue" French voiceover. He died in June 1937.

    CU French President Gaston Doumergue.

    Various shots of Doumergue when he becomes President of the Republic (1924). Being greeted by crowds. Celebrating Christmas in the Elysee Palace. On a visit to French occupied Tunisia, presenting the Legion D'Honeur to tribal leaders. At a Colonial meeting. His car is surrounded by crowds, this may be to do with him taking over as Prime Minister in 1934.

    --- For some reason the item then jumps to

    The inauguration of a building, possibly at an exhibition, by Sir Eric Fipps, British Ambassador in Paris. The Lord Mayor of London is also there.
