  • Short Summary

    Judges arrive at ceremony to reopen Law Courts and go inside building.

  • Description

    Opening of the Law Courts.

    London.

    Scenes of traditional judges in long white powdered wigs walking from street and up steps with lots of London traffic in bg. Then shots of them inside - underexposed and very dark; but it almost looks like just the wigs moving about in a line - one can see some of their faces; and make out bodies in the dark robes moving; but the whole thing looks very mysterious and secret.
