Yeah, but he definitely could not get away with that kind of talk after the war. I also think he was... well... not thinking. That is a VERY common phrase in all too many embarrassing travelogues of the era. I don't think Jimmy was the most original narrator. So much seems recycled from rival travel films.
Humorously, I think that cameraman had the "hots" for the lovely Caucasian "Australians" posing in their Fifth Avenue dresses. It was obvious he was flirting with them. Probably dated one later.
Also should add: If you look at any National Geographic magazine published during the same period, the tone is eerily similar to the Traveltalks. It was only after Melville Bell Grosvenor took over as editor after his father in 1957, that a lot of changes took place with both "the bad" and racial injustices of foreign countries and the United States shown along with the pretty "rose colored" scenery.
While I was in Vietnam, took R&R in Sydney in 1971. Had a great time.
