Production number 82 was a 35mm copy of a film originally recorded with sound to be used as a newsreel in the Florida State Theatre chain. The sound track was not transferred to the copy. Otis Boggs is listed as the narrator.
The film shows highlights of the 1950 Homecoming Celebrations at the University of Florida and includes the parade, house decorations, Swimcapades, and the Blue Key Banquet. Banquet speaker General James Van Fleet appears in the film. Most of the film, however, is footage of the Homecoming game between the Florida Gators and Auburn Tigers including brief looks at the halftime show and dignitaries in the stands.
Original format: 35 mm film. Intermediate format: Sony Beta SP. Digitization completed by: Total Video (Gainesville, Fl)
