  • Description

    Location Unknown / Unclear - United States of America?

    Various shots of the delegates entering the room for the UNO (United Nations Organisation) meeting. Men take their seats. Soviet delegate Andrei Gromiko, arriving with Mr Edward Stettinius. He sits at his place, press taking photographs. Several shots of the delegates at their seats, looking at their papers and listening to speaker - voice off screen, poor quality.

    Just to confirm that it IS Frank Sinatra in the audience, apparently he'd performed for members of the UN that week.

    Thanks for the confirmation. We like the reference to him as just a "famous crooner".
