This rare silent 8mm footage was filmed in Del Mar, California on September 11, 1966 The band met winners of a radio station contest on the beach in Del Mar, which was renamed ‘Clarksville’ by the city’s mayor for that day’s event. Afterwards, The Monkees traveled by train with the winners back to Los Angeles. This footage is available in various different formats and qualities online, I thought I would add this one to the mix! Another version is available thanks to the excellent MonkeesLiveAlmanac on Youtube at Thanks to Paul Cropper for supplying us with the original 8mm footage.
