    World War One. 'The Yanks are coming.' French children's tribute parade to USA -- thanking the Americans for entering the war. Little girls march down the street carrying American flags; some of them wearing US flag-inspired striped clothing. A widowed teacher all in black mourning with veil walks alongside; sort of moving them along. A few kids have French flags; but most carry the Stars & Stripes. CU of older men; also holding flags; and very old men; wearing old war decorations. Then CU of little girls very very cute; the tiny one in front has got her hair tangled in the flag and is struggling to get it out. Funny. Shot of a bunch of boys with US flags; very festive. (Some of these shots could stand in for actual American patriotic holiday scenes.) International relations. celebration.
