American Presidential Election - crowds enjoy eve-of-poll excitement when Dr Wilson winds up his re-election campaign in New York, United States of America - 1916.
Scenes of last-minute campaigning on the eve of the American election. Opens with shot of President Woodrow Wilson; running for his second term; standing on a crowded platform and speaking to an audience.
Next a sort of exciting short shot - front. diag. of a motorcade driving down the street; past lines of suffragette protesters holding signs; 'Wilson is Against Women'; etc. DS Procession driving through large crowd (nearly all men). Police on horseback. Car with Wilson standing and holding his hat; crowd all waving their hats madly as his car goes by; some of the crowd pushes; surges forward towards the cars. Looks pretty chaotic from above. DS crowd milling about; after motorcade has gone by. Whole screen full of hats.
