A great 8mm home movie shot in Knoxville, Tennessee during the early 1960s. Look out for behind the scenes footage of the filming of the James Agee-inspired film "All the Way Home", a classic UT football game, and the late Martin Hunt himself in a blazing red coat, hanging around with his aunt Mary Gill.Hmmm. Which classic UT football game? The film shows a marching band, some football plays with the opponents in blue jerseys, UT cheerleaders, the UT marching band, a few more plays, then the scoreboard.
Ah, they were playing Kentucky in Knoxville.
But when? The text only indicated that it was the early 1960s. This is when the 2014 UT Football Media Guide comes in real handy. UT and UK alternated sites, with UT hosting the even years during this time period. I looked and looked through the guide but couldn't find a listing of the game with that sort of scoring configuration. Then I noticed that the 1962 season didn't have a game listed against UK. The W-L Results don't add up. The score totals don't add up. But if you were to insert the Kentucky game info (Date: Nov. 24, Site: Knoxville), with a final score of 10-12, then things are in sync.

How did I know what the final score was? By looking through GenealogyBank.com.
|The Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA) - November 25, 1962|
This was verified by the schools' yearbooks (UT and UK).

The top photo in the UK yearbook (below) was probably taken within seconds of the film being shot.
