This video is pretty cool. While there is no sound, it does provide a vintage “you are there” look at outdoor football during the 1970s. It is essentially a highlight reel shot by a fan in the stands with his 35 millimeter home movie camera. It includes many of the big plays, scoring plays, as well as ambience shots of fans in the stands and the cheerleaders of the day.
