The family portrait at the 50th Anniversary.
Here's the first half of Clara & Dan's 50th, from August 18th 1990. Although I recorded this, I did not keep the original. Instead I gave it to Clara & Dan. Over the years I forgot about it until Aunt Clara mentioned she still had the video.
The photos below are taken from the video. The hands are quicker than the eyes, & Frank tries to prove it. This happens at 4:20. As I begin to focus on Robbie & Pat Camilli, I notice Frank's right hand (& I can tell where's it's going). He pulls Kathy's belt to untie her dress but Kathy's too quick for him, grabbing his hand before he can.
Part 2 begins with Angelina being asked to speak into the microphone. Confused she thinks it's a phone putting it up to her ear.Clara & Dan 50th

If you have email addresses &/or phone #'s of someone featured in these videos (especially on the Marini side, many of whom I do not know) please forward or show these to them.
Frank's video jumps a bit at x's. I've adjusted the tracking but cannot stop it from doing so. On the upswing he & Marie asked guests to say a few words & there are some gems. Especially Chris Gentile's mother who at that time was 90 & doesn't understand what's going on so she puts the mic to her ear saying hello like she's talking on the phone!
It was switched to b&w so it could be better lightened during the dark dancing scene. The same video is linked below it with (minimal) color intact :
