  1. I am in the process of identifying the year,make,and model of the cars seen in the film (those that are stationary long enough or are driving slowly, as in the parade). Very, very nice quality film by Mr Grannucci. I just noticed the film last week and checked it out. On the inside cover, the Library (Head Librarian, Historian?) asks if anyone can identify the YR, Make, Model of the vehicles seen. I am also researching the when and why of Ms. Henie's visit. It seems the great (LOL) Meriden Reckless Journal has no historical investigative reporters. - "Jay" from Hamden
