Archive Treasures: 50th Anniversary Celebration, opens this Friday at UCLA.
The series will run from October 2nd through December 19, 2015.
The festival presents some of UCLA Archive's "most illustrious restorations performed by our world-famous film preservation staff over our long history."
A total of 31 varied films will be shown over the next few weeks. I expect to be there for THE RED SHOES (1948) this Friday and again on Saturday night for GILDA (1946) and THE BIGAMIST (1953).
TCM Classic Film Festival, SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON is one of my favorite movies, and I haven't seen it on a big screen since I was a young teen and attended a series of RKO films at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. October is going to be a busy month, including two film festivals and a theatrical production (THE LION KING), but I hope I can fit that in!
I'd also especially love to see FOLLOW THRU (1930) and BECKY SHARP (1935) on November 1st.
For further details on this series, please check out Kenneth Turan's column in the Los Angeles Times.
The complete schedule of titles, dates, and times may be found at the UCLA Film & Television Archive website.
Update: My review of THE RED SHOES may be found here. Unfortunately I have to skip the evening of GILDA and THE BIGAMIST due to illness, but I hope to be there again for the night of John Ford films! The version screened of MY DARLING CLEMENTINE will be the prerelease version.
Update: Here are reviews of MY DARLING CLEMENTINE (1946) and SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON (1949).
Update: Here are reviews of FOLLOW THRU (1930) and BECKY SHARP (1935).
