Storyline

The Paris Exposition is seen as one of the most important events to take place in 1937 if only because it brought together forty-four nations side-by-side in goodwill. The Expo took place along the banks of the Seine, using many existing landmarks. Each national pavilion was provided and designed by the country in question, symbolizing some important aspect of that country. Pavilions of French colonies were also well represented. Lighter fare at the Expo included demonstrations of water skiing on the Seine, performances of cultural dances native to specific countries, and the on-going spectacle of the Fountain of Peace located at the base of the Eiffel Tower.

Quotes

[a panoramic view of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower unfolds]
Narrator: The Paris Exposition was undoubtedly one of the most important events that happened in the year of nineteen hundred and thirty-seven, if for no other reason than the fact that it brought together, for the first time in the history of world expositions, the official flags of 44 nations, which wave side by side in a spirit of international goodwill. With unbiased minds, therefore, let us review this modern spectacle,...

A Visit To The International Exposition

An MGM TRAVELTALK Short Subject.

PARIS ON PARADE takes us on a dazzling exterior tour of the pavilions built for the 1937 Paris Exposition. The film ends with the wonderful waterworks & pyrotechnic display on and over the River Seine.

This is one of a large series of succinct travelogues turned out by MGM, beginning in the 1930's. They featured Technicolor views of beautiful & unusual sights around the globe, as well as vivid, concise commentary. These films were produced & narrated by James A. FitzPatrick.
