Dallas, You're a "Shining Beacon" Filled with "The Most Retail Space Per Capita"
The Dallas Regional Chamber just posted to YouTube this short film made to commemorate its 100th anniversary, and it's star-studded: Ebby Halliday, Erle Nye, Ray Hunt, Jan Hart Black, Bob Estrada, Wright Lassiter and, of course, Mayor Tom Leppert talking Trinity. Also, it's absolutely loaded with old movies and photos taken of the city over the last century -- that's the must-see part of this Friday flashback. Worth seven minutes.
