    Madame Steinheil - wedding.

    Weddings. Marriage during World War One. It looks like a wedding; anyway; with bride in long white gown; groom in dress uniform of Royal Navy; she carries bouquet; he carries his hat; They walk down steps past many people including lots of small children. He turns & salutes someone as she gets into car; then he puts on hat; climbs in too; salutes again; says something to bride; and the automobile pulls away. Crowd (CU of some -- young girls; old lady; another Navy man; etc.) all left waving cheerfully. Happiness.

    This footage is of Marguerite Steinheil marrying her second husband, Robert Brooke Campbell Scarlett, 6th Baron Abinger. Steinheil was a French woman who was famous for her connection with the death of French President Felix Faure. Later on she was put on trial for the murder of her first husband and stepmother.
    Is this the only moving footage in the world of Steinheil?
