  • Description

    The Portuguese liner "Santa Maria" - seized by Captain Galvao and his men, Jan 23, as a "first step towards ousting Portuguese Premier Salazar" - was filmed from the air, Jan 28, steaming towards the Brazilian coast in the vicinity of Recife.

    This was the day before Rear-Admiral Allen Smith, commander of the United States Caribbean Sea Frontier, announced he would hold a sea rendezvous with the liner to arrange for release of her 588 captive passengers. The rendezvous was kept by Capt. Galvao, Jan 31.

    Meanwhile, reporters followed Capt Galvao's wife through the streets of Lisbon. But, as our film of Jan 28 shows, Senora Galvao strongly objected to publicity.
