This film from the Stroud Collection captures fisherman and an event held by the U.S. Army, possibly graduation ceremonies for the Pilot Program. Also included is footage of attendees, army pilots in uniform, and planes taking flight. Donor Suzanne Stroud Santo tells the story of the films in this collection: "My family owned the Texan Theatre in Hamilton, Texas. During the Depression, a fellow from Hollywood, down on his luck, sold my grandfather his film equipment. Grandpa would go to community events in Hamilton County and film them, then develop them and have a "showing" to promote business." The family also owned the 281 Drive-In Theatre, the first Drive-In in Texas to install a swimming pool.
