• Short Summary

    Traditional country dancing in the streets of Paris.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Paris "Ruf In Urbe! Boulevards thronged to see quaintly garbed peasants - from all parts of France - ring in the New Year."

    Paris, France.

    Large crowd watch people in traditional peasant clothing perform folk dance. A band are playing various traditional instruments (which can be heard on the sound track). C/U dancers feet as they move around. Group of women in traditional clothing with frilly head dresses. More dancing scenes. Closer shots of dancers. The music now has people singing. Another view of the women. Dancers in circle round man in silly hat. (Sound track runs out). Close shot of dancing feet. More dancing scenes.

    (I assume the title is some kind of joke - its meaning has been lost in the mists of time)
