SOUND ON FILM COMING.
PAN DOWN STEEPLE TO CROWD.
Crowds gather in fromt of the outdoor bandstand
on the grounds of the state fair of Texas to
hear the music and some conversation from Louie
Satchmo and his group
are home from a three-month world 'tour that took
them across Europe, Australia, and Africa. He
set attendance records nearly every place he went--
'he says jass is the universal language, that
Europe especially is jazz crazy. He's the hit
of the state fair's Negro Achievement Day program.
It's a busy day, too, for Satchmo---he's blowin'
that horn for four hour-long shows during the
AFTER SHOT OF GIRL.
Velma Middleton is home after turning down a
proposal of marriage to an Austrialian millionaire.
...Ol' Satchmo says "what choo doin' woman?"
The state fair hasn't seen any shaking like this
since Elvis Presley.
Here’s what’s next.
