    Amazing documentary shown on March 24, 1974 on Miami's WPLG-TV. Shocking look at South Beach at its dearth in 1974. Quotes: "Tourists don't come to South Beach" (true back then as tourists stayed upbeach). This is the first part of six - you can find the rest on Youtube with Momma Lives on Miami Beach. Very rare driveby footage of Ocean Ave hotels (first part) at their dearth in 1974. A decade later the slow takeoff roll had started.

    Here's the link to the topic in the Travel forum:

    The Elton John video above was filmed in 1988.

    The young lead is an actor named George Perez.

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0673497/

    The Ocean Drive location is roughly in front of the Beacon Hotel between 7th and 8th street.

    The hotel shown is the Clay Hotel on Washington Avenue at Espanola Way. Reverse angle of the "Cameo" Theater marquee is at the same location.




    Wow Im having a hard time choosing between George Perez and the yellow shirt stud!
