    Background: Film from Sao Paolo, Brazil, shows Emperor Haile Selassie carrying on with his scheduled visit to the city after first reports had reached him of the coup d'etat in Ethiopia, where, it was then believed, his son the Crown Prince had usurped the throne. Film of Haile Selassie's triumphant return to Addis Ababa is not yet available.

    After arriving from Brasilia, the new capital, the Emperor, accompanied by his granddaughter, paid a formal visit to the Governor of Sao Paolo state in his palace.

    Then, he drove to a nearby industrial centre where he inspected Brazil's biggest flour mill, accompanied by the orthodox archbishop of the city. But reports of the uprising were becoming more serious, and the Emperor cut short this visit, leaving Sao Paolo
    soon afterwards to begin his hurried journey home.
