[The Blaine Dunlap Collection - Outtakes from "Sunset on Film"]

Description: This short film contains elements from a longer student film titled 'Sunset on Film" which documents activities at Sunset High School in the North Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas. The film begins with the title "The Hope of the Sunset Athletic Department" followed by footage of crowds watching young women playing powder puff football or flag football. A young man takes out the trash with the school newspaper, "The Sunset Stampede" in one of the cans and two boys fold an American flag. A series of close ups of the school bell is followed by students rushing fast-motion out of the building through an open window. Other students are seen leaving school more slowly through the front of the building. Students leave campus on foot, in car, and by bus. A movie theater on Jefferson Boulevard, The Vogue, can be seen in the background. The film ends with students leaving through a darkened hallway and a sunset over the neighborhood.
