  • Description

    Full titles read: "Mr. Stresemann - Germany's Foreign Minister... on vacation on the Riviera"

    French Riviera, France.

    L/S of Mr Gustav Stresemann sitting at an umbrella-covered table on a terrace with some other men in suits; it looks quite a windy day. M/S of the group; they don't look very relaxed. The man on the left moves his chair back, presumably so we get a clear shot of Mr Stresemann.

    The following footage appears to be cuts / extra footage probably not used in the original story. Various shots show Mr Stresemann walking down to the coast as some cameramen run ahead of him to set up their tripods. Stresemann and his entourage clamber over rocks by the sea where he poses with the waves in the background; L/S shows three cameramen filming him. Medium C/U of Streseman sitting at his terrace table. L/S of a hotel, presumably where he was staying.

    Various shots of Stresemann walking about some gardens with his entourage. He poses for the camera with one of his men; in the background we see another cameraman filming. Several more walkabout and posed shots as cameramen scurry to get to the next 'shot'. At one point a young lady joins the group and walks along behind them. Nice M/S of the group of men walking along and lifting their hats to someone off-camera. Similar footage to the original story as detailed above.
