This film records the sights and sounds of the pre-game show at the 1961 FSU game. The color has faded and the images are dark. Sound quality is good.
The film begins with a number played by the FSU band. The FSU band exits and the Gator band enters. The band plays several songs. The first is characterized as a "primitive band." The Gatorettes pretend to play a drum. At the same time, the card section creates a "Sambo" image.
At the close of the show, the band forms UF and plays We Are the Boys. The FSU band re-enters the field playing its fight song and forms FSU. Both bands exit playing Dixie.
At approximately 10:30 the sound is lost and there is about a minute of football action.
