Trivia

The black-and-white portions of this film were filmed in 1942, when Orson Welles was asked by Nelson Rockefeller to make a "goodwill" film documentary about South America. RKO assumed Welles' film would resemble an innocuous travelogue; instead, he began to film a documentary about ordinary daily life in Brazil. Legends (ultimately proved untrue) sprang up about Welles' riotous behavior in Brazil, and RKO pulled the plug on the film after a fatal accident involving fishermen. For years, the original footage was considered lost, but what was left was eventually found in the Paramount stock footage library and edited into this 1993 release. See more »

orson's thoughts
23 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From "This Is Orson Welles" by Bogdanovich

On the film:

"I've never seen any of what we shot, not a foot. Nobody ever saw the rushes."

On filming in South America:

"I didn't even like it particularly. I liked samba, but I didn't want to go down and live in South America--it's my least favorite part of the world."

On filming:

"I had this enormous crew sent down--I didn't want them, but they gave me two camera crews. So I'd sent a crew out there and said, 'Shoot 'em marching up and down.' I had to keep them busy; they were always saying, 'We want to get home--we're trapped here.'...So there must have been an awful lot of junk shot, because I wasn't even there."
