Mystery Video: February 2014

This month’s Mystery Video captures scenes of an event attended by Texas Personality Hondo Crouch in the 1970s. A band plays in a small pavilion, women speak to the camera and drink Lone Star beer, two cowboys put on a comedic gun show, and, most puzzlingly, Hondo Crouch sits with a coffin in the back of a truck. Do you know what is happening in this film? What event was this? Where and when did it take place? Do you recognize anyone else in the film? Whose coffin is Crouch babysitting? Help the Archive tell this very Texan story!
