BFI

Lunch on the Eiffel Tower (1914)

Like its newsreel rivals, Topical Budget kept abreast of affairs abroad as well as at home, and could roam far and wide in pursuit of a good story. Here a lavishly decked out dining room atop France's most iconic monument is the scene of a formal luncheon for foreign dignitaries. The cameraman rides the elevator for a spectacular view of the city glimpsed beyond iron fretwork.
