This video premiered as part of the 2020 Homegrown Music Video Showcase, but it’s also a product of the PDD Video Lab and there are a few things worth mentioning about it.
The footage is from a video cassette labeled: “1935 film of Overmans by David Oxman, 16mm.” The evidence is pretty strong that the footage was shot in Duluth and the toddler who stars in it is William Peter Overman. The parents would be Jeanne and Ben Overman.
According to William Overman’s obituary, he was born and raised in Duluth and graduated from East High School, the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School of Business. For 23 years he was a partner in the Neuberger Berman investment firm in New York until his death on Sept. 22, 1997, in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
The song used in the clip above is “Baby Blue” by Duluth band Bridget’s Cadillac from the 2016 album “Baby Blue.”
Below is some bonus footage, also with music by Bridget’s Cadillac. The track used here is “Allergic to You.”
