Hello, good evening! This is truly amazing. My apologies if you have already seen this video, truly a phenomenum, if you live in Brazil, a friend or coworker probably notified you about it. I received today more than a few messages about it.

This movie is part of a series of documentary videos produced by Metro Goldwin Mayer in 1936, named Traveltalk, “The Voice of The Globe” and this excerpt is dedicated to the city of Rio de Janeiro, which is really fascinating, more than seven minutes of Rio de Janeiro images recorded in 1936, with color. I think you should not miss this one, even if you do not have any kind of connection with Rio.

Hope uEnjoy!

Olá Zeca! Obrigado pelo elogio lá no blog, vida longa por aqui também!!

Fantástico esse video, mas acho que ele foi gravado nos anos 40, pois em 36 ainda não existia a tecnologia de filme a cores, e alguns carrões que aparecem alí também dão essa pista…

Grande abraço e parabéns!!

Gostei muito.

Revi o Palácio Monroe e a Praça XV com edifícios qua ainda existiam nos anos 70. Aquele castelo mourisco ficava no Mourisco em Botafogo?

Thanks, zeca. I really enjoyed this… fun to go to Rio and also back in time. The music captured my attention also… although I was unable to identify the pieces played.

oh my GOD. its so beautiful. rio de janeiro no coracao. i LOVE IT! The music is so 30s…. Now i understand why the politicians in Rio live in the past and do not even take the favelas in the maps. It WAS paradise on earth… It still is but more dynamic (and a slighter bigger risk of being mugged on the street…;) Muito brigado Zeca.

Nice video of the most beautiful city in the world. Americans didn’t get it then, and they don’t get it today. All the music is not from Brazil!!!, you have rumbas and tangos… they still do the same and they will never learn!!
Thanks Zeca for this video.
By the way, Colour films date back to 1934, for example the W. Disney Fantasia was made that year.

This short film is a real timepiece. In the U.S., it is showm every once in a while on the cable television station TCM, usually just before a delightfully “kitschy” 1940s Hollywood film starring Carmen Miranda!

O nosso “loro ” é mesmo um grande defensor da cultura brasileira e da manutenção da memória nacional .Apesar do blog ser voltado para música , esse vídeo é das melhores coisas postadas (e olha que no blog só tem coisa boa).As imagens a cores que eu nunca tinha visto são como se entrássemos numa máquina do tempo direto para essa época fantástica .Destaque para a Av Rio Branco arborizada ,o Monroe que a estupidez de alguns conseguiu demolir ,a Praça Paris e o Mourisco em Botafogo .Quanto a data das imagens , acredito que seja mesmo 1936 porque o edifïcio “A Noite “na Praça Mauá é de 1938 e no filme aparece ainda em construção .Como sempre ,nossos irmãos do norte mostram nossa terra como uma coisa exótica e folclórica como a menina trabalhando com asas de borboleta .Em resumo , imperdível , deslumbrante , fascinante , fundamental para quem quer conhecer e entender o Rio . Muito obrigado .Forte abraço

What an amazing captured moment in history !
It’s almost surrealistic because we usually get to see black & white-filmed footage from the early decades. With color added to it , it suddenly seems much closer to our current world.
The first time i experienced that was during a tv-show from my country , where they had found footage in colour with images from an official ceremony concerning our royal house , filmed in the 30’s.

Thanx again Zeca for this wonderful documentary ,

From minute 00:50 to 2:14 is an orchestral version of “La Paloma”, a classic from Sebastián de Yradier, a Spanish composer from the 19th Century. Although the author was from Spain, this kind of song was born in Cuba, and is called Habanera.

“La Paloma” inspired Georges Bizet to compose his famous “Habanera”, from the 1st act of his opera “Carmen”.

Thanks Zeca. Nice images and an invaluable document.
