Thank you for posting, Tyburn.

My favorite part is at 3:30. "What kind of a people do they think we are ?!?"

My Favourite is the one of three words he uses to describe his hope for future UK/US relations as a close to his speech

Peace

Justice

MAJESTY

btw...sitting behind to the left...is that the President only...its VERY interesting to watch when he chooses NOT to join in, or is unenthusiastic with the applause.

At one point, Churchill speaks about the Italian Dictator in a rather demeaning fashion, much to the hilarity of Congress...except for that Gentleman who seems almost to find the mockery distasteful. He's also not to fond of the Russians, even if they have made headway against the Germans..perhaps its just the black and white film, but the guy looks like he belongs two or more centuries previous
