• Short Summary

    Jokey item showing several things forbidden by ancient law in Paris.

  • Description

    Titles read: "YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!"

    Paris, France.

    Several shots of French notices forbidding doing things like putting up posters, or walking on the grass. We then see various shots of people doing things that are apparently forbidden by ancient law - a woman takes a leopard on a lead for a walk, a man lies down in the road leading up to the Arc de Triomphe and reads a newspaper, a woman hangs out her undies on a line between two trees near the Arc de Triomphe, a man tries to kiss a woman who is asleep in a railway carriage - she wakes up and pushes him away.

    A stall-holder sprinkles water from a chalice over cabbages, men dressed as clowns walk through a field with rifles and shoot a bird from the sky. Lastly a blonde girl in a swimsuit climbs into a fountain in the city and splashes about.
