Title Card reads, "Alexander Murdered" and the next card reads, "Universal Newsreel brings you FIRST ACTUAL motion pictures of the murder of King Alexander of Yugoslavia and French Foreign Minster Barthou." Camera pans across the Yugoslavian battleship 'Dubrovnik', its guns and men are visible on the boat. A small boat with the French flag flying in the back and the Yugoslavian flag in the front, pulls up to the Dubrovnik and brings King Alexander to shore in Marseille, France. The boat docks and a massive crowd gathers to greet the king who can be seen in closeup. He is accompanied by the French Foreign Minster Louis Barthou and they walk down the street together and enter an open topped car. The men are shown in closeup in the car and the scene ends.
