Rice Today (1977)
written and directed by Doug Killgore, Wiess '69
part of:Rice U. Historical Shorts
length: 14 minutes

This presentation (along with the Walking Tour and Rice Today (1983)) was part of a series produced for showing to alumni groups around the coutry. Originally a slide show with a soundtrack composed of music and quotes from students, faculty, and alumni, it contains glimpses of various departments and Rice architecture, and a bit of Rice history as well. Some of the faculty included are John Parish, Frank Vandiver, Samuel Jones, Stewat Baker, Bob Sterling, John O'Neil and Bud Morehead, to name but a few. Mr. Morehead's appearance gave rise to his starring in the Walking Tour film and Stewart Baker's was the springboard that eventually developed into the feature film, "The Trust" - the story of the murder of William Marsh Rice. The song "Sammy, Sammy, O!" by the Rice Glee Club was found on a red record in Fondren Library.
