Goodyear Blimp Over the House

Funeral Birthday Party Goodyear Blimp 1974 Found 8mm Home Movie Film

This is your typical home movie with many events on one reel. The reel starts in April of 1974 at Uncle Lees(?) Funeral and then we see Carter at the cemetery. The reel progresses through many family events and ends in November of 1974 with Tracy the baby in a high chair looking cute as a button! Nothing groundbreaking happens in the footage, but the young boy playing with an Evil Knievel playset was a walk down memory lane because I had one when I was about his age. Also how cool was it to see the Goodyear blimp go right over that house!

Christmas 1970 Ideal Space Helmets Gifts Found 8mm Home Movie Film

This is a home movie of a family with young boys who each get an Ideal Space Helmet for Christmas. The film starts by showing the Christmas tree and decorations, and then the boys open their gifts those Ideal Space Helmets. The boys play with their Ideal Star Team Space Helmets for a few minutes. Looks like mom got a sit up exerciser and it looks like the boys are having a good time playing on it. Dad strums his new guitar and then film ends.

San Francisco California Alcatraz Prison 8mm Home Movie

Home movie of San Francisco California, Alcatraz, and other sights you would want to see in 1977. The film shows what a trip to the Bay Area in the 1970s would have been like! I really like the shot from the Streetcar shooting down the street, it looks like a roller coaster! I have never been to San Francisco, but in my mind’s eye that short clip is how I have always imagined it. I guess that is what you want from a home movie of San Francisco, something to remember it by.

Riverlake Country Club Flood Dallas Texas April 1957

This video was shot during the Dallas Flood in April 1957 in and around Dallas Texas. It shows Riverlake Country Club in Dallas Tx and the Dallas Area. I find this funny because when I was a kid I played the golf course that some of the footage shows. I can relate to this footage because it was wet than too!
