Viewing Notes
NHF cataloguer's notes, 8/97 (notes are divided into 9 parts due to length, donor's notes inserted in brackets): Shot of park-like area in city. MS of little boy urinating at edge of grass patch. Puts his arm across his face when he realizes that he's been captured on camera. He runs off. LS of sun in sky. Sky is bright orange. CU of man's face. He shakes his head as if trying to wake himself up. His wife has him by the scruff of his shirt. It is she who is trying to wake him up! She persists in shaking him. She lays her hands on his head and begins moving his head back and forth. He finally wakes up. She holds what appears to be a cluster of illuminated light bulbs at his left. She tweaks his ear and pushes his head once more. LS of public building with car parked out front. Snow is falling. Shot going to the right of the immediate area. Quick shot of two football players, very overexposed. Pan of team [Greenville High School, ca.1950-1952?] playing. Again the photography is extremely poor. Shot can hardly be made out. Blotches, visual glitches on film. Shot of team [Greenville High School, ca.1950-1952?] playing baseball. Photography not much improved. The baseball game continues. Photography has improved as the game continues. Series of quick shots of the continuing game. MS of football game [Yale University team, ca. late 1930s?] in progress. Series of quick shots continue to record the game. The game goes on, but the photography has become overexposed. Photography improves as action of the game intensifies. Pan of crowd, spectators in the bleachers. LS of male cheerleaders going through their routines on field. Team resumes playing. Shots alternate between crowd in bleachers and team as it plays. Pan of school band as it marches along field. LS of male cheerleaders going through their routines. Quick shot of marching school band on field. Shot just a little fuzzy. MS of car as it leaves field. Track shot of field. (End of film.)
