Summary
This program was presented for the 1986 Jacob's Pillow gala. The final segment of the program is a tribute to Gower Champion presented on his birthday. The participants offer memories of Champion; Max Showalter plays the piano; Marge Champion and her son Blake perform a dance. The presentation includes slides and clips from Champion's films, but these are difficult to see on the tape due to low lighting.
