Title:Shoe Shine Boy [Captured from VHS Access Copy]
Identifier:dv_00095
Related:dv_00092
Description:Film of shoe shiner Floyd Jackson arriving by plane, greeting [family], then shining the shoes of executives at the Bankers Mortgage Building and the Commerce Building. Label on box [not from creator] reads: "Shoe Shine Boy, includes Jesse Jones, Fred Heyne and Oscar Holcomb, 1954." Title in finding aid was "Shoeshine Box". An August, 27 1954 newspaper article from the Lubbock Morning Avalanche entitled "Shoeshine Anyone? All That's Needed Is Million Dollars" seems to cover the same event, and gives the additional information that Jackson made the trip as a contestant on the TV game show "Truth or Consequences", and received $100 for each shoe shine. The article also names R.E. (Bob) Smith, W.A. (Bill) Smith, J.M. Rockwell, Ralph Johnston, George Brown, Harmon Whittington, John Jones and Curtis Japhet as executives receiving shoe shines at the Bankers Mortgage Building. Black and white picture with no sound. This capture was taken from a VHS access copy of the film [original film was digitized as dv_00092], and contains a blurrier but more stable and less damaged version of the film's content.
