"OREGON: Vintage Home Movies"
VERNONIA, CLATSKANIE, and the OREGON COAST, 1960s-70s
The picture quality is remarkably good for film of this vintage. It has faded in spots, and has the usual scratches and occasional out-of-focus shots that gives home movies it's unique charm. But the film is of very acceptable quality, and a music track has been added to this "silent" footage. There are four separate shows on this DVD:
(1). THE VERNONIA FRIENDSHIP JAMBOREE. Shot July 27, 1967, this reel consists of the Parade and Logging Show. Running time: 14-minutes.
(2). TRIP TO HUG POINT OREGON. Shot on February 20, 1970, a group of art students from Vernonia High School go on a field trip to the beach, where they paint, and explore with instructor Ray Wolf. Runs 10-minutes.
(3). CLATSKANIE PARADE. Shot on the 4th of July in 1967. A look at their annual parade. Runs 7-minutes.
(4) BEHIND-THE-SCENES of "The Vernonia Incident", a feature film shot in Vernonia in 1989. A professionally made, fully narrated documentary that shows how the special effects and car crashes were done. Runs 28-minutes.
All four segments combined run about an hour. Produced by husband-and-wife filmmakers Ray and Migdalia Etheridge. A Golden West Films presentation.
