Home movies occupy an enormous part of our Texas film heritage. Since the 1920s, popular formats like 16mm, 8mm, Super 8 and video have captured our private events and public moments and helped us channel our creative impulses as amateur filmmakers. But they do more than just document our lives: our home movies continually reveal what we consider to be valuable, significant and worth sharing with others. Likely shot in the late 1940s or early1950s, this film documents daily life around Eagle Point, Texas. Among the scenes featuring the people and friendly animal residents around the marina, are a woman gathering laundry and a couple deboning fish, and various images of the nearby beaches and cabins.

The films of the Ray Jelinek Collection were rescued from a flooded trailer on Galveston after Hurricane Ike. They were donated by Jan Valentine and are permanently housed in the archives at the Alfred R. Neumann Library, University of Houston - Clear Lake.
