Within living memory we have seen it born & grow up, grow up to full maturity. That’s the reason that some governments do not want American films exhibited in their countries.” (edit) 11:26:02 “We have been seeking to affirm our faith in this western world of ours thru a wider exchange of culture & education & thought, of free expression among the various nations of this hemisphere. Our government has invited you to do your share of the job of interpreting people of the western hemisphere to one another. And all of us in all of the 21 American Republics & Canada are grateful that your response is so immediate & so wholehearted. (edit) 11:26:57 And as we all know, an all important factor in hemispheric defense is the lend-lease bill, who’s early enactment by the Congress we confidently anticipate. It is a pleasure to here & now to acknowledge the great service which the newsreels have performed and are performing in acquainting the public with all of the implications of this measure as it takes its way thru the various legislative stages.” Presidential Address; Business; Public Relations; Movie Industry; Propaganda; Pre-WWII; Pre-WW2; Western Hemisphere; OAS; Latin America; NOTE: Sold at per reel rate.
