Slice of Life 3

In 1973, Homer Groening, an award-winning filmmaker, did a 16mm film about his alma mater, Linfield College.

The film, “Linfield Revisited,” was used by Linfield Admissions and the Linfield Alumni Office.

Although the film does not have credits, it is a Homer Groening production. In fact, you can hear his voice in the film as an off-camera person who asks questions. He graduated from Linfield in 1941 and died in 1996. Homer Groening was the father of Matt Groening of Simpson’s fame.

See the film (running time 28 minutes) below.

Slice of Life 1 and 2

This film provides an interesting slice of life from the college. It’s apparently from the 1971-1972 school year. Read film details here. One of those appearing in the film (see photo) is Ted Wilson. However, the film is not sports-centric. It’s a complete film, divided into two parts only for this posting.
