The Ballad of John Latouche

Howard Pollack

Oxford University Press

Latouche interrupted his Broadway career in order to go to the Belgian Congo (1942-43) to help research and write a documentary with filmmaker André Cauvin for the Belgian government in exile, Congo (1945). The trip also resulted in a travelogue, called Congo as well and released in 1945. After his return from the Congo, Latouche entered the navy, joining the Seabees, and serving in California and in Hawaii (1943–44). On his return to New York, he separated from his wife, and began a new phase in his career
