Mr.Meadow Ilike most are one, a commercial for the French Government Tourist Office.
The TV commercial is called Monument. It deals with some of the very famous places in France, It attempts to take the viewer's point of view and actually makes him a part of the seen he is viewing. To be more specific, we open the commercial as the camera glides down the famous Hall of Mirrors Versailles. The narrator say;"Walk the mirrored hall of Versailles, were Madam Pompadoul once danced." We then go to Chartres and we "kneel in the famous cathedrals where once greatprinces knelt" and so forth through the experience kf Joan of Are etc. to finally windine up with the Arc de Triomphe. It is a beautifully filmed bit of the visual splendor of France, presented with the invitation to relive the splendor youself and to be a participant at the spots where so many great things happened.

The Place de la Concord is scrubbed and gleaming. The sommelier of a 4 star restaurant says it will be a great win year. And the provinces report the geese lokk extra fat. For the first time since Louis left Versailles is dazzling in candlelight. And the Louvre has 26 new halls filled with dramtic antiques. We've turned a lot of picturesque castles into charming inns for you and opened a lot of new hotels. We've even planted flowers all the way from Paris to Nice so we'll be coming up roses. In other words, we hope you'll have a wondwefull time.

Now's the time to send an American to Paris−−to get to know the real Parisians−−to get to know Paris when it's alive, when it's really French.
