Sinterklaas arrives by boat in Eindhoven; shakes hands; gets in an open carriage; does the entry; a waggon loaded with presents rides with him; lots of children; Sinterklaas stands on a balcony and is cheered on by a huge crowd.

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
