Date: 1975 August 15
Physical Details: 5 video reels : sd., b&w ; 1/2 in. ; 2 hr., 32 min., 21 sec.
Description: Video shot at Tworkov's home on his 75th birthday by his daughter, Helen.
The first 30 minutes contains a discussion between Tworkov's wife, Rachel "Wally" Wolodofsky, and his sister, followed by his grandson interviewing him (at 11 minutes), followed by Tworkov showing guests around his studio (at 20 minutes).
The second through fourth tapes are an extended interview with Tworkov by his daughter Helen.
The fifth tape contains an interview with Rachel and footage of a family dinner.
The video quality is poor throughout due to degradation of the original tapes, but the fifth tape has badly distorted audio and is mostly inaudible except for the last five minutes.
