Music Video | Joao Gilberto, Tom Jobim & Luiz Bonfa at the Beach

I found this video and I am very curious about it. The quality is excelent and shows a very early Joao Gilberto, Tom Jobim and Luiz Bonfa at the beach in Rio de Janeiro. If anyone can add some info about it, please let me know.

The video can be also downloaded from TurboUpload, here.

Hello Zecalouro,
it should be a moviescene from the movie " Copacabana Palace (1962/Itlay/Brazil) which is also told about in Ruy Custro's bossa nova history book.
The complete movie shows perhaps the beautiful Rio in the 60's.Would be great to see sometime the complete movie.

Best wishes

Good. It is amazing how this copy is so good after 40 years. I will check if it is commercially available.

Yes it is Copacabana Palace and on the beach they sing Bonfa's "O Mar" but it is very short lived.

I have 150 videos of brazilian bossa nova (about 58,000 feet of footage) and you can see it on:
