Words on screen: “Bangkok -- capital of Siam where one finds the East of one’s dreams.” LS of beautiful buildings, tilts up to top. Cut to shot from boat of other ships in water. Cut to shot of men in long row boats canoeing. LS of them going away. Shot of other boats passing by, houses along water side in background. Camera moves with boat as they all drive by. Cut to MS of little boys in front of fence. Cut to MLS of large house. MS of front door, lion statues sit in front of pillars. Shot of small boy on dirt road. Closer shot of him, wearing nothing but jewel loincloth. Shot of him running for mother’s legs. Screen black, words “Royal Palaces and Temples inlaid and overlaid with sapphires, painted procelains and gold -- costing millions.”
