You Are There*: Paramount newsreel on FDR’s “Four Freedoms” speech

Uploaded from the Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, New York; remember, this was January 16, 1941, nearly 11 months before Pearl Harbor.  Who were the audiences Roosevelt aimed this speech at?  What was he trying to convince them of?

* Apologies to the CBS series, “You Are There,” of course.
