Abstract:

A "video scrapbook" featuring camcorder footage from people around the world.

Topics include dedication of Chicago's Division Street Bridge in honor of Studs Terkel on May 16, 1992; after the dedication, Terkel gives a short speech, and Mike Royko also appears. Also features footage of the bridge, one of the many drawbridges that cross the Chicago River. Includes clips from "It's A Living" by Videopolis, (Media Burn 10197) including segment with Alfred Pommier, aka Wheelin' Lovin' Al, a Chicago parking lot attendant. The segment follows his daily routine at the parking lot; continues with Terkel hosting his radio show at WFMT, a local radio station. Direct Effect PSAs, one advocating organic farming, one for Amnesty International; one advocating against racism; and another PSA featuring Meryl Streep, Keith Richards, and other film, TV, and music stars. More clips from "It's A Living", including Terkel talking about how he admires artists and Terkel playing an audiotape featuring Mayor Richard J. Daley screaming about nepotism; also features a secretary, Marcia Stocking, complaining about her job, and Terkel at Riccardo's, an Italian restaurant. This is followed by a commercial for Les Brown, a motiviational speaker, and a commercial for Gold Coast Dogs, a Chicago hot dog stand. Following this is a segment with Ruth Handler, founder and president of Nearly Me., Inc., a company that manufactures breast prostheses for mastectomy patients. She shows Nearly Me's product line, takes the viewer on a tour of the factory, and talks about her life. Then, a commercial featuring "Johnny Smoke," for the American Heart Association. Next, a commercial for Instant Ralston cereal. Followed by "Hair Art is Not a Crime", a demonstration in support of the Hair Wrappers, Venice Beach, Calif., vendors who use string to decorate people's hair, and who are being arrested by the authorities because they do not possess cosmetology licenses. The last two segments are another Les Brown commercial and a Direct Effect PSA advocating litter control.
