  • Description

    Titles read: "'K' ON TOUR".

    Hollywood, California, United States of America.

    General view of the motorcade in the 20th Century Fox studio street for the visit of Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev. Beautiful film star / actress Marilyn Monroe shakes hands with a security man and gives him a radiant smile as she makes her way into the sound stage where Kruschev and party are visiting the set of the film 'Can Can'. C/U of 'No Smoking' sign in English and Russian.

    Several shots of musical numbers from the film being rehearsed or shot. Back of Frank Sinatra and cancan girls doing the 'Maidens Typical of France' number. Then we see various shots of a musical cancan number in the show. Kruschev and guests are sitting in an elevated section with a good view of the action. A huge crowd (probably 20th Century Fox employees) also sits watching.

    After the routine, Kruschev meets and poses with stars Louis Jourdan, Shirley Maclaine, Frank Sinatra and Juliet Prowse. Shirley lifts up her cancan skirts and shows off her garter - the saucebox!

    Alternative spellings - Khrushchev, Krushchev, Khruschev.
