This film, shot in 1941, includes footage of the residents of La Coste, Texas and of the town itself. Up-close shots of children in the school yard and adults in town center show the faces of La Coste, and scenes of students playing various sports capture the activity of a school day. This film is part of a larger collection of itinerant films made by Arthur J. Higgins. Higgins was an itinerant filmmaker in the 1930s and 40s who visited towns across the country with his wife, spending several days recording posed scenes of daily life there that focused primarily on the residents, for whom the film was typically shown at a local theater.
