    Unissued / unused material.

    French pop singer Johnny Halliday's boxing ballet, Paris, France.

    MS back view of Halliday in the spotlight, singing on stage at the Paris Sports Palace.

    VS Halliday entering stage dressed as boxer and getting into ring. He has boxing match with a boxer (not real boxing - jokey, staged fighting). Despite obviously not hitting each other Halliday ends up with blood all over his face (fake blood). Halliday is (of course) victorious.

    Date on dope sheet is 12/05/1969.

    NB: not sure what boxing match was in aid of - whole scenario is pretty bizarre.
