  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    Titles read: "FRENCH PREMIER IN LONDON".

    London and Czechoslovakia.

    Various shots of the plane carrying French Premier Edouard Daladier arriving at Croydon Airport. Daladier is driven off to London for talks with Neville Chamberlain about the Czech Crisis (see 'Rush Version' of this story for more footage of the arrival).

    Several shots of a huge rally against Hitler at Trafalgar Square; brief shots of speakers and enormous crowds. Demonstrators march through the streets with mounted police escort; banners read "Stop German Aggression - Act To Save Peace!", "Stand By Czechoslovakia Against German Fascist Aggression" and "For Peace Stop Hitler".

    In Czechoslovakia we see several shots of a demonstration in a town. People march along with banners; women and children in traditional dress wave and hold the ribbons of a kind of maypole as they walk along. Various shots of Czech troops in training on foot and on horseback. Quick shot of tanks moving along a wide street - in Czechoslovakia?
