Storyline

We start in Rio de Janeiro, with the statue of Cristo Redentor on Mount Corcovado, the avenue along the beach, the beauty of an historic city, and the landmark, Sugarloaf. Brazil's 47 million people celebrate racial diversity. From the Copacabana, we travel 40 miles to a resort, Quitandinha, where President Truman spoke. Then it's on to Sao Paolo, a modern, industrial city, and finally to the spectacular waterfalls of Iguazu on the border between Brazil and Argentina. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Beautiful Brazil (1952)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

TravelTalks entry takes us to Brazil where narrator James A. FitzPatrick shows us various locations starting with a giant statue of Christ and then we see a harbor where the large buildings on shore can be seen in the water. Rio de Jenero is the main focus here as we learn there are over two-million people living there and that many consider it the greatest city on Earth. We learn about the various races and religions that live there and how no one is looked down upon. T He beautiful beaches get some views as does the crystal blue ocean. If you've seen any shorts from this series then you'll know what to expect. We get the nice narration by FitzPatrick and some nice visuals thanks in large part to the Technicolor process. For the most part all of the scenes and stories are of some interest and the visuals are certainly worth looking at.
