[McAllen, Texas: Rio Grande River and Reynosa, Mexico]

Description: This film is unedited television footage regarding events and sites in McAllen, Texas. The first segment of the film includes Tony Roma’s restaurant of McAllen, a couple being filmed inside, and an interview with its General Manager and CEO, Richard D. Guerra. Guerra describes McAllen as the “home of the Texas Ruby Red grapefruit” and “square dancing capital of the world”. During the interview with Guerra, an off-camera female crew member says that she is shooting footage for “Discover America” and mentions the show’s producer. Throughout the footage in this film, the crew talks casually off-camera while filming panoramas of the city and its town square. The next segment of the video follows a group of senior citizens visiting sites near the Mexican border. They walk through an open air market, they approach border crossing to Reynosa, Mexico, they watch orioles and other birds at the Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park of the Texas Park and Wildlife Department, and then they leave the park in an RV. Next, a female crewmember appears on camera and poses as a visitor to a mission, as the crew film shots of the mission interior and grounds. The film ends at the Rio Grande River, where a man and woman push off from shore in a motorized rowboat, and a rope-pulled ferry transports passenger cars and people across the river.
