In the summer of 1956, Meher Baba toured the United States. He visited New York City and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and made several stops in California, including Los Angeles, Ojai, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Meher Baba asked Charmian Duce Corrinet, daughter of Murshida Ivy Duce of Sufism Reoriented, to film the trip. She acquired the best 16mm camera she could and traveled with him throughout his visit. She then edited the film, and in the late 1960s, assisted by Henry Mindlin and her future husband, Duncan Knowles, added a soundtrack. Charmian and Duncan provide the narration.
