KRON-TV special program from the 1960s (date unknown) featuring a visual interpretation of side 1 of Stephen McNeil and Libby McNeil's 1958 composition 'San Francisco: My Enchanted City' (conducted by David Rose and his orchestra). This made-for-television film is similar in style and artistic tone to sequences from classic 1950s Hollywood movie musicals and celebrates the city and it's people. Also includes several aerial shots of San Francisco. This film was written and produced by Larry Russell and directed by Dick Behrendt. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
A 16mm negative film print and separate mono optical film soundtrack were found in the KRON Collection in August 2019, which provided better picture and sound quality than the previously available 16mm positive synchronized film print. Film ref. no. KRON 530 (vault barcode 30750025031927). The lower quality synchronized print ref. number, which was originally used as the screener source on this page (and then removed), is KRON 6.
