After so long, I have finally gotten the movies back from the developer.
As expected, there’s no smoking gun. Just little blips that keep me suspicious of this man.
I saved some screenshots. It was interesting to see him as a younger man.
In the films, there is a short clip where the video goes from a child playing a violin, then cuts quickly to two men fighting eachother on the ground, then cuts back to the child again.
In another part of the film, the same silent film is cut in, backwards and upside down and plays for a moment before cutting back to the family again.
He recorded a visit to the Masonic Cemetery near Bodie, CA., and some short clips of Bodie, the gold rush era ghost town near Mono Lake in Northern California. There was also a trip to an African type safari that used to be operational in Southern California, but has since closed down.
Nothing that I could see was anything more than simple home movies.
I’ve sent all of the movies to his family. I am sure they will enjoy seeing the movies since they were made 60 years ago and had not been developed yet until now.
