View, from a high vantage point, of soldiers assembling beneath the Arch of Triumph, in paris. Others move from a street, forming up and marching into the circle around the monument (which has been cleared for the event).Spectators line the sidewalks around the Arch circle. Several motorcycles lead and others escort a motorcade of several cars. Street-level view of General Dwight Eisenhower,saluting the crowds, as he stands in an open car passing the Monument to the Republic, situated at Place de la République. The car crosses a bridge and turns toward the Hotel de Ville (City Hall) on the place de l'Hotel-de-Ville. Closeups of crowds from the passing car. Sequence shifts to a different open car carrying French Marshal jean de lattre de tassigny (smoking a cigarette) sharing the back seat with a French Air Force officer (appears to be Philippe Maurin).
