OK, we freely admit that we knew that the YouTube version of “Time to Live” that we originally posted a couple months ago (featuring the wonderfully creepy guy pictured above) was missing a huge chunk out of the middle (as one of our commenters pointed out). As such, we hunted down the complete version with the help of Leah Davis Witherow in Special Collections at the Pioneers Museum.

We present it to you now in its full, unexpurgated form: “Time To Live,” a promotional movie for Colorado Springs made in 1964 by the local Alexander Film Company. You’ll be so impressed you’ll want to move to this delightful little city. Trust us!

Time To Live!

    It is so fun to see what styles of clothing, but also what was acceptable back in the 60′s as far as what they could and would say and show in this clip.

    Problem is, I can’t watch it all – the download is awful and though I’ve left it up for over 3 hours, I’ve gotten to the good doctor’s office and that’s it! Any suggestions? I have high speed internet and have never had problems before.

    Where do I get me some o’ that “unrestrained wild west hoopla”?
