The costumes and bizarre pageantry of the 6th Annual Republic of Texas Chilympiad are well captured in this footage. Known as the "largest bowl o' red," the Chilympiad chili cook-off winners qualify to compete in the Terilingua Chili Cook-Off. A jolly gorilla takes the stages while other costumed participants check out the chili.
Known to many as the "Voice of the Longhorns," Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard "Cactus" Pryor. The films in the Wally Pryor collection represent a range of films from home movies, to various pieces he produced, films featuring himself, and several films featuring Cactus Pryor.
