Date produced: 1969

Filmmaker(s):

David Adams

Description:

"Autumn...Frost Country and Dunes both films made by David Adams of Santa Monica, Calif. rated high in the Class "C" list of winners. Both in color with optical sound. "Autumn...Frost Country" is an 8-minute film of changing leaves narrated with a poem written and recited by Robert Frost. "Dunes" is a 7-minute film depicting the vastness of the desert at Death Valley. The film does an excellent job of conveying the fact that, in spite of the soltitude of the desert, there is plenty of life to be observed there if one has patience," PSA Journal, Mar. 1970, 43.


Just Nancy

Date produced: 1965

Filmmaker(s):

Helen Webb-Smith

Description:

"Nancy tells and shows in a series of five flashbacks what impressed 12 year old Nancy most during her summer vacation. Many a family vacation film ends with the unpacking of the car and bringing in the suitcases. That is where this little vacation film begins. As Nancy unpacks her bag she looks at the things she has brought home and they remind her of her summer's events–boating, woodgathering and the removal of a splinter from grandfather's hand, the milkweed plants and the monarch caterpillar, swimming, a picnic, feeding the birds, and playing with other girls her own age. This is decidedly different from the ordinary travel film, and much of its charm comes from the voice of a young Nancy as she narrates the film. It won the MPD Travel Film Award" PSA Journal, Sept. 1965, 50-51.


If Summer Comes

Date produced: 1965

Filmmaker(s):

C. W. Aldred

Description:

"If Summer Comes. "What does summer mean to you?" asks the narrator. It means different things to different people, but in this poetic film he describes what summer means to him – fishing, walking through the woods, filling his pockets with crabapples, searching for little animals by the stream, and so on. A nostalgic little study, smoothly carried out" PSA Journal, Sept. 1965, 50.


Work of Nature-through the Seasons

Date produced: 1963

Filmmaker(s):

J. Ira Laird

Description:

"With the melting of the winter's ice and snow, waterfowl, animals, insects and flowers begin to awaken. Through migration, nesting, family rearing and training, the seasons pass. As the last of the fall colors are gradually covered with ice and snow, the migration reverses, it is winter again, and the cycle closes as it began. This film was awarded the Dick Bird Nature Trophy" PSA Journal, Oct. 1963, 42.
