  •  This the the Muckleroy Christmas Party at Simmaron Street, Houston, Texas. Grifen Muckleroy is handing out presents. James Valentino is the man waving in the camera on the far right of the room at the end of the film. Bruce Butterfras is in red sitting beside James.  Bruce also waves. The good looking woman with a pink skirt is Margie Valentino.

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 1960s-era color home movie footage features several generations of a family opening presents on Christmas morning.

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.
