to president Vargas.

The President wished the

well-known author a happy stay...

and urged him to write

further books...

to the glory of his

new home - Brazil.

Sing! Sing! Chop-chop!

Sing! Sing!

Good, very good!

Once more!

Stefan Zweig!

Jesus, Stefan Zweig, here!

It's you!

What a marvelous coincidence!

Stefan Zweig at carnival in Rio!

Believe me, Mr. Zweig...

when I got off the plane,

I said to my producer:

"Get me an interview

with Stefan Zweig.

He's a sublime writer.

I must talk to him. "

But your agent or somebody

said you were...


That's very kind of you, Mr. Welles.

You know, they are

boycotting my pictures.

Here it's Vargas...

back home,

it's Rockefeller and RKO studios.

Everything is tough!

I'm being censored.

So now they send me here...

to film the Brazil of the postcards,

the scenic Brazil.

But me, I want to shoot

the real people, the slums...

the black guys, the black girls!

Specially the black girls.

The people are what make

a country special.

Oh yes, Mr. Zweig! Yes!

Everything I learned about Brazil

I learned from your book.

It's a masterpiece.

No other foreigner knows Brazil,

understands Brazil like you.

And I say that to anyone

who cares to listen.

It's no secret:

your book is the inspiration

for my picture.

George! The book!



So long, Mr. Zweig.

And enjoy your paradise!

And my congratulations for

having such a beautiful wife!

Stefan, are you coming?

Am I forgetting anyone, Lotte?

Why don't you take a break?

You've gone over and over

the list for days.

I'll have plenty of time to rest

when our friends are here...

and safe with us.

Now... who have I missed?

What about the Feinbergs?

I've got the Feinbergs... here.


There must be someone
