  • Short Summary

    Paris lit up at night - Eiffel Tower, Pigalle, fountains, etc. Plea for London to have similar displays.

  • Description

    Paris, France.

    Lights illuminate on the Eiffel Tower. Shots of Paris lit up at night with extravagant illuminations including a sign that says "Pigalle". Displays featuring clowns and dragons are shown. Via an intertitle the question is asked: "why can't we instil some attractive lighting like this into our Metropolis, and make a brighter City to attract the great Tourist stream?". Illuminated fountains are shown and nice shots of an illumination featuring pierrots blowing bubbles.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue 573.

    Safety print exists.

    Note: nice shots although film has some image damage.

    See 846.08 which is a digibeta copy of the safety print. The safety print version looks slightly softer but less damage to image. Check both to see which image quality is preferred. This version is from the neg, the other is from print.
