    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for THE GAY CITY in G 1278. The original story is also on Pathe Master tape *PM0458*.

    French title: "La formation du cortege, Place Daumesnil".

    Various M/Ss of people in fancy dress walking down a cobbled street, part of the mid-Lent carnival.

    French in intertitle: "Sur les grands boulevards".

    Various shots of procession and carnival queens - similar to those in edited story. Some nice additional point of view shots of crowds taken from a moving carnival float. M/S of a man dressed as Charlie Chaplin walking along in the procession. More shots of the carnival, including a girl on horseback, a car with cameramen in the back and a Pierrot clowning about on a float.

    M/S of the Pathe-Journal offices, a crowd stands watching the carnival in front of it, Pathe workers wave at the camera from the windows. Some shots of policemen on horseback and on foot breaking up a part of the crowd - looks like the beginnings of a small riot. Lots more general carnival shots.

    Intertitle: "Mlle IZEMBART, Reine des Reines".

    Various shots of the carnival queen. Please see record for edited story for further details.
