Notes

Abstract:
Part of the University of Florida Marching Band Collection. Film documentation of the pre-game and half-time shows of the University of Florida marching band at the 1960 homecoming game. Color and image quality is good. Sound quality is fair. The Gatorettes are featured several times during the pre-game portion of the film. Band numbers include Suwanee and Way Down Yonder in New Orleans. (Tulane was the visiting team.) The homecoming sweetheart and her entourage appear in a Thunderbird convertible. The band plays the national anthem and the flag is raised. The band exits the field playing the Washington and Lee Swing. The football team enters the field preceded by the cheerleaders, one of whom is wearing a Gator head. The kick-off is shown and the roar of the crowd is rather loud. The half-time show has the band entering the field playing the Orange and Blue. There are several audience participation numbers followed by We Are the Boys and the Alma Mater. During the Alma Mater, the camera scans the eastern horizon and focuses on Century Tower. The voices of the fans are clearly audible as they sing the Alma Mater. The band leaves playing Dixie. The films ends with the second-half kick-off.
