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 color and black-and-white footage of different parts of the Jelinek family. Featured are the two Jelinek daughters playing with their grandfather in their family's backyard in the 1960s, followed by earlier (and unrelated) images near Galveston, among them young men repairing boats, a sand dredging operation, a Gulf of Mexico fishing trip, and a cat and dog playing.

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.
