    Titles read: "The Pope gives Blessing from St Peter's Balcony".

    Rome, Italy.

    Panning shot across the enormous crowds in St Peter's Square. Brief shots of Pope Pius XI (Achille Ratti) blessing the crowds from the balcony and being carried away on a chair. Brief shots of the dome of St Peter's at night, illuminated by lots of tiny light bulbs. More quick shots of crowds in the square (daytime) and official-looking people on the balconies.
