Deauville, France (cuts). Fashionable holiday resort, beach scenes, beach games, bathing, horse racing.

Montage of scenes from Deauville; a holiday seaside resort in France; on the coast of Normandy; 1920s. Looks like fun. Jumps back & forth from one scene to another; sometimes repeating a bit.

Crowds at outdoor cafe and at the races; eating; drinking; talking; other people strolling by the cafe; past shops; through park; etc. Shot of 3 women standing in park; talking; 1 starts to open up paper to look at programme for races or some entertainment; man walks up to her; pointing at the paper & saying something and the lady seems to be telling him off; waving her arm in an impatient; angry gesture. Summer fashions: many light-coloured dresses & hats.

Brief shots of horse race. Good shots of children playing games: a line of little girls each holding waist of girl in front of her; do a silly walk; swinging their legs out to the sides in unison. A man walks backward at front of line; holding hands of the little girl in front. Next; the girls leapfrog across the lawn; in a race. The man seems to be a games instructor. Beach cabins in distance.

Next; a boys’ group; doing exercises. Then 2 little boys boxing; w/ gloves. Also many good shots of children playing in water at the beach; standing in the waves; some of them holding onto a rope while others are farther out; body surfing. Some boys having trouble w/ a large rowing boat until some men help. More of the fashionable crowds in the parks, on sea front, at races and outdoor cafes.

Recreation; vacation; ocean; swimming. More from Deauville follows immediately on same tape.
