This footage represents Wally Pryor’s “demo tape,” including various samples of his work. Pyror served as spokesperson for various services such as Ehlers Roofing and Scholz Garden. Furthermore, he was the narrator for videos produced by the Texas Exes. The film concludes with an example of his experience as a Master of Ceremonies for the Diamond Shamrock Corp Jobbers Convention.
Known to many as the “Voice of the Longhorns,” Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard “Cactus” Pryor. The films in the Wally Pryor collection represent a range of films from home movies, to various pieces he produced, films featuring himself, and several films featuring Cactus Pryor.
