AMC Film Preservation Festival, 1993 __002 (part 2) Museum of Modern Art
American Movie Classics (AMC) aired its first Film Preservation Festival March 12-14, 1993. This segment starts with director Sydney Pollack discussing the historical/social importance of preserving film heritage and segues into a nice mini-documentary about the preservation efforts of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Sorry for the "off" framing. I captured this crudely by aiming my iPod at a flat-screen TV off my old VHS tape that was mainly done to capture the very rare screening of the restored Technicolor print of "Becky Sharp" (1935), which to my knowledge has still never been released to home video formats. I still have the tape, one of the last half-dozen VHS that survived the genocidal purge of 2012, where 99 percent of my tapes went into the trash. Yes. I regret it now, but space is an issue.
