Point Stadium Movie Crew

This slide at the Point Stadium was taken from 16mm film and even though it's a bit on the hot side (bright) it clearly shows what I believe is a film crew at work. There were three films made in Johnstown in the span of a couple of years, SLAPSHOT, THOSE FABULOUS STAINS and of course ALL THE RIGHT MOVES.
You would think it could most likely be ALL THE RIGHT MOVES - but I am not so sure - considering the year it was made and that 16mm film was being replaced by 3/4 tape. Also the trouble is - the image is soft and even zooming in - it's hard to tell exactly what is going on. I'll have to do more research to figure this one out.
If you ever get a chance - check out THOSE FABULOUS STAINS - it starred a very yound Diane Lane and at least to me - gives even a better slice of Johnstown life than the other two movies. It plays on TCM occassionally.
