Drive-in Picture Show Filmed, produced & directed by Bill Schwartz Remember "Beast from Beyond"? That was the very first effort in filmmaking done by Bill Schwartz. The background is the alien spaceship interior he built out on his Dad's carport. The BEAST mask was made out of cardboard, paste and liquid latex. Bill started filming this in 1959 with a cast that included classmates Richard Winslow, George Mayo, Dale Potter, Sue Sturges, Jean Welch, Bill Sharp and Ronnie Peacock. Bill shot the film in B&W 8mm film which had to be mailed out of state for processing.

We know we can't bring back the past, but just for the fun of it--and possibly, fun memories -- through the WPHS Alumni Class of 1961 web site we thought we would share with you a little trivia about one of our favorite classmates along with some music from the 1950's and 1960's. (Click on the movie screen to go to Bill's web site.)

We are really happy to have grown up during the wonderful '50's and '60's. There are selected *.wav & *.ra files below - just a click away - that are the 'original' sounds from our past. So put on your dancing shoes and let's stroll.

Many songs from the early years (original artists )
