This compilation of footage is comprised of the outtakes from the 1982 promotional film, “State Fair of Texas: Showplace.” Perhaps more intriguing than the finished film, the outtakes capture scenes of tourists chowing down on corn on the cob, leotard-clad dancers rehearsing, the fairgrounds at night, and a monkey riding a horse!
