Description: Sound (English), b&W, 14 min. Whitsun, the Pentecost weekend, puts millions of Europeans on the road for a brief vacation in the spring. The film contrasts the way West Europeans are free to choose how they spend their time with the organized, lock-step celebration of the weekend at the World Youth Congress in East Berlin. The Marshall Plan film unit produced few films of an outright anti-Communist nature. But Peter Baylis, on the unit's staff (he wrote and produced the ONE-TWO-THREE Series), made this film almost as a personal statement. The film received no commercial distribution, but a number of non-Communist trade unions found it useful for showing in union halls. 14 min, 1953, written and produced by Peter Baylis for the MSA Film Unit, Paris. NARA ref. copy: VT and PPC, 2R.
