    This important movie is about the FDR visit to Casablanca in january 1943. Other scenes are in Brazilian base of Natal with pres Getulio Vargas (with a cane), US ambassador in Brazil, Jefferson Caffery, Adm Jonas H. Ingram later Commander of South Atlantic Fleet. This unique footage reveals the definitive joint between US and Brazil to fight the war together.
