1976 Montreal summer Olympics; pick up shots filmed during marathon, camera is positioned near a church on a rainy Saturday and films activity when no runners are visible, a black couple in wedding clothes crossing street (race course), helped by policemen, shots of families posing for wedding photographs, of bridesmaids moving about. Various shots of pedestrians, spectators on roadside, boys riding bikes, three young men with funny hats on road bikes with backpacks. Shots of policemen and soldiers assuring security, it all looks very 1970’s.
