This home movie captures scenes of the Montgomery family in 1977-78 as they celebrate holidays, spend time around the house, and attend festivals in Austin. Of note are scenes of a street fair on the University of Texas’ West Campus, the Montgomery girls dressed in Star Wars costumes for Halloween, and Eeyore’s Birthday festival in Pease Park. Throughout, Montgomery films newspaper headlines to document the date and current events.
