The documentary from 1952 captures a slice-of-life portrait of a quintessential American small town during the fifties, tracing the activities of its diverse inhabitants from the break of dawn through dusk. It depicts various individuals engaged in assorted occupations, culminating with the communal pastime of bowling, all presented in black and white.
