Asia in America, St. Louis Exposition (film #5 on America at Work, America at Leisure: Motion Pictures from 1894-1915. Also in the Historical section of Open Video Project). [Category: Early Film & TV]

This is footage of a parade of Asians in cultural dress at the St. Louis Exposition, taken from a rather far away vantage point so it’s hard to see things. This has some historical interest, I suppose, though. A 1904 Biograph film.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
