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. This film includes footage of the Jelinek family in the 1950s. Featured is an infant girl learning to walk, and the same child a year later as a toddler in an inflatable pool as well as with her family at Eagle Point Marina (near San Leon, on Galveston Bay) and seeing her grandmother off at the Houston airport.

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.
