• Short Summary

    American, British and Russian delegate argue over Korean Peace Treaty at the UN.

  • Description

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    Title reads 'Lodge vs. Vishinsky'.

    CU. Chief of US delegation to United Nations Senator Henry Cabot Lodge seated during the UN debate on Korean Peace Treaty. LS. GV. Assembly. CU. Lodge speaking - natural sound. He says: "In this troubled world we must take one thing at a time. The Korean tragedy is a gaping wound in the flesh of the world. If we can bind up that would we will be doing well, if on the other hand, we have a conference which becomes a catch-role for every problem in the world, or even every problem in the Far East, it will probably lead to little more than sound and fury signifying nothing." CU. Russian delegate in the UNO Andrei Vishinsky seated, raises his hand, asking to reply. GV. Assembly. CU. Vishinsky speaking in Russian - American voiceover covers his speech so it cannot be heard. CU. British delegate Selwyn Lloyd speaking - natural sound: "...certainly in our view his resolutions will not hold water and perhaps quite appropriately I might quote his saying the Russian fable "Oh no good woman, it is like dancing with the wrong foot".
