• Short Summary

    Bullfight is staged at Paris street - everyone enjoys it.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "France - PARIS IS STILL GAY! - Traffic and work stops to see burlesque bullfight."

    Paris, France.

    Procession of toreros (men in bull fight costumes) and women in Spanish dresses walking along crowded Paris street. Two people in bull's costume run across the street in staged bull fight. Bull, surrounded by toreros, runs in different directions. Toreros wave with their capes - poor bull is confused, he does not know where to run. Street orchestra plays music from 'Carmen', crowds laugh and cheer. Gendarmes are seen quite relaxed, watching the spectacle.
