    I didn’t hear any audio. Was that supposed to be a silent movie? It was a kick to watch though.

    It is funny to see everybody wearing suits and ties in Miami after dark. You don’t see so much of that anymore. Also, there didn’t seem to be much automobile traffic.

    I don’t hear any auido, either. It’s a home movie, which means 8mm film, which means that audio would have been a luxury, so I assume the film was captured without sound.

    Most of that movie was filmed in Coral Gables and downtown Miami.

    killer find, alesh. this is a true time capsule. to have been able to record the audio would have been too much to ask, perhaps.

    now, think about it… 50s home flick in color? state of the art technology.

    That color was great! The only thing missing was the humidity. And when Wolfie’s came into view…


    Frankly, I don’t think the club kids of today have a clue of what they missed (mind you, I listened to the stories of my grandparents as a kid)

    I’m gonna go play my Xavier Cugat recording of “Miami Beach Rumba” now…
