    Item title reads: "The Doughboys Return. French Capital en fete as American Legion - 30,000 strong - open convention with "big parade." A signal honour - The Legionaries were first troops to pass through the Arc de Triomphe since 1919."

    Paris, France

    American legionnaires, both men and women, some in military uniforms and carrying standards of the Stars & Stripes flag march through the streets of Paris. They pass grandiose buildings watched by large crowds. They pass over a bridge over the Seine. The camera follows as they march slowly down the street. They pass through Place De La Concorde. There are more shots as they march through crowded streets, and finally they march through and under the Arc de Triomphe. Close up of legionnaires bearing Stars and Stripes walking towards camera.
