Shots of the Blue Hotel in Paris, France.
Various shots of the Blue Hotel in Paris; 1925.
Shot of domed tower with name 'Pavillon Bleu Hotel' in lights (but not turned on; as this is shot in daytime). People sitting at tables in the garden (behind hotel?). Steps ascend from this patio to more tables on a veranda stretching along and around (?) the back of the building. Shot of veranda & interior - an inside dining room is just on the other side of a wall of windows; making the whole inside & outside dining area blend together - all very light and airy.
Another section of the restaurant; like a Palm Court; with many big parlour palms gracefully bending over tables; expert waiters hurrying about their work; guests in foreground talking at tables; while in background a few couples are dancing - tres elegante. Wide shot from across street of part of front of hotel; a row of tables on a balcony on 2nd floor; floor above very high ceilings; giant windows. Closer shot pavement cafe in front of hotel with balcony above it. Next shots of couples dancing in ballroom - ornate designs on walls; low lights; orchestra playing; some tables off at side in background. Lots of 1920s fashions - cloche hats; etc.
