Video clips from an 8mm camera taken during the filming of the movie Giant. Taken by my dad, Don Russell as he was on assignment with B.F.Goodrich as an engineer testing tires driving 100mph in Marfa, Texas. Just happened that one of the perks was driving by the film set every day. He also befriended Elizabeth Taylor's makeup man ( who had been a demolition expert in World War II) who helped them get on set etc.
