  • Short Summary

    Views of Hanoi, Vietnam and Phnom Penh, Cambodia from the early 1930s.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown. 1931?

    French title reads: "M. Reynaud En Indo-Chine. Hanoi. Voici quelques aspects de la capitale du Tonkin visitee ces jours - ci par le Ministre des Colonies au cours de son voyage."

    Hanoi, North Vietnam (At this stage French Indo China)

    Street scenes in Hanoi. Lots of people on bicycles and rickshaws. People wearing traditional straw hats. A young woman combs her wet hair in the street. A man buys noodles and eats them . CU a small child smiling.

    Superfluous intertitle-
    Intertitle reads: "Le Voyage De. M. Reynaud - Indo-Chine. Voici quelues aspects de la ville de Pnom-Penh, capitale du Cambodge, que notre Ministre des Colonies a recemment visitee."

    Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

    Views of a palace or temple.

    Intertitle reads: 'Un couvent be bonzes. Une des curiosites de la ville est cett sotre de monastere dans lequel vivent et prient les pretres cambodgiens."

    Views of a monastery. Monks go into a building. CU various men (mainly elderly) kneeling in prayer. Good shot inside temple.

    N.B. Presumably these views were filmed to mark the visit to French Indochina by French Colonial Minister Paul Reynaud.
