    Titles read: "WENDELL WILLKIE IN MIDDLE EAST".

    Cairo, Egypt.

    Various shots show Wendell Willkie arriving at Cairo airport as President Roosevelt's representative on a US Air Transport plane. He is on a tour of the Middle East. He gets off the plane wearing a pith helmet and is greeted by Lord Casey and Alexander Kirk, the American Minister. They chat and have a cigarette. Willkie is driven off in a car.

    Note: commentator notes Willkie's popularity with the British "during the ugly days and nights of early '41" - referring to the morale boosting tour of Britain that the American politician undertook at that time - see separate records for Pathe footage of the tour.
