Not sure if anybody has seen this video, so I will post (re-post).

I found it setting in my Wayne State email from 2002. It is a promotional film made in 1965 to bid on the 1968 Olympic Games. At 18+ minutes its a bit long for quick viewing. Very good footage and interesting mentality; defiantly gives you a sense of the times in Detroit.

Interesting. Fair visual, horrible voice-over by Mayor Cavanagh, but excellent orchestration by the DSO.

Worth looking at, though. Thx for the link.
