There is no voice-over in this colorful look at various aspects of Arizona life, sponsored by American Airlines. The footage extends from the mid-1960s to the early-1970s, presented in internal segments while instrumental music plays. A cowgirl on a galloping white horse (:18) segues into a 1970 Corvette Convertible (:38) driving through the desert on Route 88, the Apache Trail, and past the Superstition Mountains (:44). The fun moves to a speed boat (:58) pulling a water skier. The camera shifts its view to the Red Rock State Park (1:23) where a cowboy on horseback leads cattle (1:40) up a slope. On the famous movie location Old Tucson, the sheriff kicks two men out of the saloon, resulting in a shootout in which the good guy wins (1:54-2:43). The shift is to the Sky Harbor Municipal Airport in Phoenix, where an American Airlines Astrojet B727 taxis, which came on the scene in 1973 (2:43-2:56). Back in the car, we drive up close to Gammage Auditorium (3:16) in Tempe, one of the Frank Lloyd Wright sites. A woman rides a Honda C50 Step-Thru Super Cub (3:52) past The Heard Museum in Phoenix (3:56). Arizona is also known for golfing (4:14-4:34) following by outdoor evening dining.
A flock of sheep struggle downhill through the red sand to reach water (5:27-6:02), driven by cowboys on horseback. Riders stop to eat as pancakes sizzle on a campfire grill and homemade biscuits brown up in a cast iron pot (6:04-6:25). A group fishes out on the lake (6:29) while swimmers enjoy the pool, including women dressed in bikini styles popular in 1964 (6:35-7:59). A man and a woman bird watch (8:00) as children saddle up for a horseback ride through the Grand Canyon (8:12-9:12).
