  • Short Summary

    Nice footage of the party. France.

  • Description

    Soldiers concert party. France.

    Entertainment; World War One. Military show. Pan across group of actors: A soldier with a bunch of clowns and a guy in drag in a short dancer's dress and a striped cape; also another one in black face and drag -- changing race and sex all at once. They are all leaning together and goofing off; a clown grabbing the soldier's helmet and putting it on; etc. - looks like a curtain call. Then a shot of this wacky troupe prancing off stage through a door with words above 'Artistes Entrance'; where a man in civilian suit sees them off. Comedy; theatre; actors; costumes; funny.
