"Cantinflas visits school in East Los Angeles"

April 2, 1974


Mexican actor-comedian Cantinflas visits Robert F. Kennedy Elementary School in East Los Angeles. He talks with children and teachers in a classroom (frequently in Spanish), signs autographs and talks with reporters as he leaves. Footage includes silent shots of the school and kids playing on the playground.

Note:  The KTLA newsfilm collection at UCLA consists of cut and unedited stories, outtakes and fill footage, originally shot on 16mm reversal film stock with magnetic soundtrack. Some footage, particularly material not used for broadcast, may be without sound.
