I've been foraging the Internet Archive daily for the past several weeks now. The archive is a bottomless respository of fascinating material.
The 7 minute and 44 second film opens with a narrated action sequence of the film cannister of the event being loaded onto an airplane, flown to New York, and taken to the studio in a car with policemen perched on the running board. The scene was included to emphasize the speed with which the newsreel was being distributed to the public.
To put this opening into context, ponder the fact that many of the older people in the audience had experienced childhood with no automobiles, no airplanes, and no movie theaters. Talking film had just become widespread a few years previously. The novelty of seeing and listening to a presidential inauguration within a week or two of the event, in the depths of the Great Depression, must have seemed like a futuristic technological marvel.
This newsreel includes the opening sequence boasting about the speediness of the film transport, the swearing-in, an excerpt from Roosevelt's inaugural address, and closing praise of the new president. It's a fascinating glimpse into the way news was distributed before television and the internet.
