"This was the first important international exposition after the invention of cinema, and filmmakers used it as a venue to demonstrate innovations. Many of them made films to bring the exposition to life for their audiences at home." - Paul Spehr
"White’s camera offers several 360-degree pans of views of the fairground, then amazes by tilting up and down the Eiffel Tower, and concludes with a stunning tracking shot to the highest point above Paris. Exhibitors freely grouped films into nascent narratives such as those displayed here." - Bruce Posner
