    Various shots of the large liner ship 'Normandie' in before its launch. It is surrounded by cranes. Priests and choir arrive for launching service. Various dignitaries arrive on the podium to launch the ship. The ship is blessed and launched. It begins to move down the slipway to the water. The dignitaries cheer and applaud.
