This silent home movie documents El Paso High School's 1991 commencement ceremony, which marked the 75th anniversary of the school. In celebration of both the anniversary and the 1991 graduates, Academy Award winning actor F. Murray Abraham served as the keynote speaker. Abraham, known for his work in "Scarface" and "Amadeus," is an El Paso native and 1958 graduate of El Paso High School. His remarks at the ceremony earn him a standing ovation, which he returns to the graduating students, who then receive their diplomas from the EPHS faculty.
