• Short Summary

    King Farouk marries his new bride Queen Farida at Cairo.

  • Description

    Titles read: "THE ROYAL WEDDING IN CAIRO".

    Cairo, Egypt.

    Brief L/S of 18-year-old King Farouk looking out from a balcony. Various shots of decorated floats in a procession to celebrate the King's wedding. The bride, Queen Farida in white gown and veil, arrives after the marriage contract has been signed and joins her new husband the Koubeh Palace. Brief shots of fireworks that night.

    The next morning we see the army marching past the palace in a display and aeroplanes flying overhead. This section is quite blurred and shaky - probably damaged or decomposing film.
