As WW2 began to spread, there was concern in the United States about the growth of Nazi influence in South America. As a precaution, then President Franklin D. Roosevelt deployed a Goodwill Envoy mission to South America as part of the Good
Neighbor Policy. That mission was lead by Walt Disney, who, along with a group of now historic animators, became so fascinated with the people and cultures they visited that 2 feature films were released which reflected the impact upon Disney and the animators.
The first film, “Saludos Amigos”, was a collection of 4 animated shorts interspersed with live action film from the areas that were visited. That film was released on August 24, 1942.
Here is the film in its entirety.
