This footage from San Antonio news channel, KSAT-TV, which aired in three parts over three days, examines the film industry in San Antonio. Beginning with silent film, “Wings,” filmed in San Antonio in 1926, then following with John Wayne’s “The Alamo,” San Antonio continued to be present as a film location through the 1970s and 80s with movies like “The Sugarland Express,” “Rolling Thunder,” and “Cloak & Dagger.” The broadcast discusses the economic benefits of these projects, then reports on current and future film projects in San Antonio. The remaining footage reports on television made in San Antonio. In addition to commercials, it discusses a new concert series filmed at Fiesta Texas, “The Texas Connection,” which premiered with a concert performed by the Texas Tornadoes.
