For those of you new to the Plymouth area and for long time residents alike, here’s an interesting film that was shot in 1969 (the year of my birth) on Super 8 (that’s a size of movie film) thanks to Rene Litalien, who was an 11th grader at Plymouth High School that year when he shot the video.  It shows a lot of the local businesses, cars, and beverages of the era – some of which are still around (ex. Box Bar, Wiltse’s Pharmacy). And Patrick, my car guy husband, noticed what appears to be a new Plymouth Superbird on a dealer lot! We should definitely add that song, “Small Town”, by John Mellencamp, to go with the video…
