Star Item
  • Description

    Full title reads: "DEATH FROM THE AIR - Gas attack demonstration in Paris."

    Paris, France.

    Various shots of the Paris illuminations - great shots of the streets at night. Several shots of the loud speakers - possibly air attack sirens. Several shots of the lights going off on streets, Paris is suddenly in dark. Several shots of the people fitting gas masks over their heads. Planes flying over the city, antiaircraft guns firing. Various shots of the men in protective clothing rescuing people, carrying wounded in ambulance, washing streets etc. Several shots of the powerful reflectors lighting the sky over Paris searching for planes.

    There is no mention of this item in the original paperwork for this issue. It probably belongs to another issue.
