While in New York, this time around, Armstrong reached a pivotal point in his career; he led the Dickerson band and doubled in a roll on Broadway in the revue called Hot Chocolates . His first popular song hit came from this show; a song written by Fats Waller called Ain't Misbehavin' .

"By the time of the All-Stars performance in Belgium," writes Rob Bowman in the liner notes, "they were a well-oiled machine, performing similar sets night after night." But three months later, Armstrong suffered a heart attack in Spoleto, Italy, and his pace slowed down. The Antwerp film captures Armstrong when he was still going strong. It showcases the craft of a consummate entertainer from the old school, who strove always to please people. As Bowman writes:

A federal judge had ordered the integration of the all-white Central High School in Little Rock. Nine African-American students tried to attend the school but were turned away by an angry mob of whites and by armed National Guardsmen called out by Governor Orval Faubus. Armstrong was furious at what he believed to be inaction on the part of the federal government to correct the situation. He declared, “The way they are treating my people in the South, the government can go to hell.” Armstrong claimed that President Eisenhower had “no guts” in dealing with Faubus, whom he called an “ignorant plow boy.” “It’s getting so bad,” he concluded, “a colored man hasn’t got any country.”
