  • Description

    Persian leader Riza Shah Pahlavi. Iranian (Persian).

    Shots of Riza Khan Pahlavi; later Riza Shah Pahlavi. Title: Riza Khan; the man who dethroned the shah was once a simple soldier and now at the top of the new government. R.K.; in military officer's uniform; poses w/ other man; wearing a long coat and a fez hat; several soldiers in BG. CU of same people. Judging from text; this shot was most likely from 1925; while Pahlavi was Prime Minister; after the former Shah was deposed but before P. was crowned Shah himself. Or this may have been an earlier film (c 1921-23 while he was head of the army) which was used with the text later. This man was the father of Mohammed Riza Pahlavi; the Shah of Iran who was deposed in the revolution in 1979.
