This stunning Pan Am Airlines travelogue of Paris and France was directed by Harry L. Coleman, and features images of the “City of Lights” from the late 1950s. These include standard tourist fare such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower, Versailles, The Louvre, Arch of Triumph, Seine River, Montmartre, etc. to images of everyday life in the bustling city — with its cars, motorbikes and bicycles — the bird market of Sacre Couer, and the Paris flea market. A visit to rural areas beyond Paris begins around the 14 minute mark, including Brittany, the winemaking regions, Champagne, Mont Blanc and the French Alps.
