Black and white footage featuring Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev making a speech with the aid of an interpreter at the Sheraton-Palace hotel in San Francisco. He talks about the history of the USA and USSR and how many Russian immigrants came to California. He and the Soviet people all hope for a world of peace and friendship with America and other nations. He hopes his talks with President Dwight D. Eisenhower on this trip will help ensure that peace. This was the first time a Soviet premier had visited the USA.
Former child star Shirley Temple Black is shown seated with other diplomats earlier in the footage. This would have been just before the start of her political career, which she pursued in earnest in the 1960s.
