Almost all of the color has faded in this film.  Production quality is inferior to other band films.  This particular film was made during pre-game and half-time of the Florida-Alabama game. 

The film begins with the band on the field in a diamond formation playing a medley.  Garland Powell is introduced and makes a brief announcement and then leads a cheer while the band forms the word GATORS.  The band marches off the field playing "Dixie".  Football players then run out to the field one by one and are introduced.  The film goes blank and then the half time show begins.  The Gator band is introduced and the drum major Jeff Watch.  The announcer then introduces Gary Langford's arrangement of "Caravan" which the band then plays.  The graduating seniors in the Gator Band are introduced.  After playing "Memory" from the Broadway musical "Cats" the band marches off the field.  The final footage shows the crowd in the stands at Florida Field.
