  • Description

    King and Queen of Spain.

    Location of events unknown.

    Spain's royal family: King Alfonso XIII; Queen Victoria; and family; attend a horse show / festival. Opens w/ steeplechase race in progress: horses jump hedges & fences; riders wear military uniforms. Man (possibly King A?) leading horse w/ young daughter riding; in children's event. Kids ride around ring; some led by adults. CU little tiny girl sitting on horse.

    CU car w/ top down; cute little Princess in white hat; 2 ladies get in. Another car. 2 cute little boys get in; maybe even twins. King; other man get in. Festival crowd walking all around; sign in BG: 'Le Palais de Danse'. Pan over crowd.

    Then shot of group of people acting silly: fashionable ladies banging on cymbals & drums; man in FG waving his arm and shouting; another man seems to be fumbling w/ small crash cymbals tied to a pole. Guess the roaring 20s are arriving and life's a drunken party.
