Museum Treasures

The Moving Image Collection at George Eastman Museum, one of the major film archives in the United States, holds more than 28,000 titles. Film history, over the course of 120 unpredictable years, has turned some of them into undisputed classics—prints that are regularly aired, exhibited, and loaned—while most of our no less interesting films remain quietly condemned to slumber in cold darkness. Museum Treasures is a kiss for these celluloid Sleeping Beauties. Each month a different member of the Moving Image Department, be it a curator, archivist, or film projectionist, picks a title (or a series of shorts) from our collection—a rare, treasured, or perhaps simply beloved item that would otherwise never see the light of a film projector. Because love makes the reels go ’round.
