Perhaps others have seen this video, which I just discovered. It was filmed by Architect Franco d'Ayala Valva, probably during his residency at Taliesin West in 1955-56. It is dedicated to Mrs. Wright and Heloise ... with a release date of 5 November 2018

A project any and all might participate in: translate and transcribe the narration.

Wright might tend to begin a long sentence with a noun. Miss the noun and you've missed the meaning of all that follows . . . ?

PS: I sent the link to Indira and she recognized quite a few of the people in the video ... including herself!

Hi, – just got a chance to see the video and was happy to see that Anna, Daddy, and I are in it, as well as the other recognizable people ... like Mr. and Mrs. Wright, Wes, Jack, Gene, aunt Sophie and Uncle Vlado, Iovanna, Heloise, Frances…(and maybe Tom Olsen) Very nice to see it! Thanks, Indira

-Wes' Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing is visible at :33
-Is 1:24 to 1:28 the music/movements theater masonry under construction?
-Phoenix area work at 3:10-3:46
-Olgivanna fussing over some schmutz on FLLW's lapel at 4:45.

Neat snapshot.

From 6:07 to 6:26 there is a scan of the mountains, looking like a giant mural by Georgia O'Keefe.

Yes. Lighting is everything, in the visual world; the sunlight falling on that stretch of mountain perfectly reveals its pattern. At another time of day, or in another season, the effect would be quite different.

That such a long piece of the landscape should appear so remarkably consistent, is an unexpected delight . . .
