A Visit to Biskra was a particularly picturesque travelogue from the Pathe firm. The film begins with attractive views of the citizens of the Middle Eastern community and their colorful lodgings. We then move on to a few scattered street scenes, culminating with a military parade. The reel ends with a performance by an exotic dancer. The fact that the dancer spends more time on screen than practically anything else is indication enough that the cameraman took the phrase "scenic beauties" to heart. This film was released in tandem with another Pathe release, Show Your License.
