The Race to Save Films We Love

1931 Movie "The Front Page"

1931 Movie “The Front Page”

Toronto. My friend George Dunbar dropped me a note late last month about this NY Times article with the above title. The article discusses a number of movies from the 1930s and their critiques of the time.

The article notes that almost all theatres world wide now show digital copies of films – even those shot on film! Discussion also covers the impact of talkies on the silent movies; impact of censorship; etc.

Read the article and enjoy a bit of nostalgia (I used to view selections at TIFF with my youngest daughter in that brief period between her graduation and marriage).
