Italian -- Texans

Description: Video recording of an amateur production about the Italian American experience in Texas that appears to have been created for the fourth Italian Symposium of Texas held in Bryan, Texas in September 1984. North Texas State University (now UNT) professor Dr. Samuel J. Marino introduces the production and references Texas Woman's University professor of Government, Cavaliere Valentine J. Belfiglio's 1983 book, The Italian Experience in Texas, which this production was based on. Dr. Marino traveled to Texas towns that historically had Italian communities and filmed interviews with residents, as well as scenery and exteriors of local Italian owned businesses. Dr. Marino narrates the video from a script he wrote with Alfonso Nicosia. The visuals are of a poor quality and are often overexposed and blurry.

Italian Texans (Original Takes)

Description: Amateur production about the Italian American experience in Texas that may have been created for the Italian Symposium of Texas in September 1984. This video is the unedited original shots for the completed "Italians in Texas" documentary film. North Texas State University professor Dr. Samuel J. Marino was the lead for the piece, which was based off of Texas Woman's University professor of Government, Valentine J. Belfiglio's 1983 book, "The Italian Experience in Texas". Drs. Belfiglio and Marino traveled to Texas towns that historically had Italian communities and filmed interviews with residents, as well as scenery. At various intervals the video cuts out and goes to a blue screen or a screen with colored bars. Two of these times, one at about three minutes in and then again at the end of the footage, footage from television are played. The first is a scene from "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" and later is the AT&T logo, a McDonald's commercial, and a preview for a miniseries titled "The Last Days of Pompeii" that is voiced-over with a news announcement. The main piece though is made up of various takes and clips that went into making the Italians in Texas film.
