This 1958 home movie segment captures Donna Johnson’s eighth birthday party. First, Donna and her friends play a game of red rover in the front yard. Then, the birthday girl takes stock in the many presents she received. Later, Donna performs at a dance recital. The film also includes footage of the Johnson children playing in the backyard with the family dog, who joins them on a ride down the slide.
