A very exciting day for Eastman House, National Film Preservation Foundation, the Cineteca del Friuli and Cinemazero.
A long lost film…found. It’s 35mm, it’s nitrate, it’s slapstick. Too Much Johnson.
Our very own Tony Delgrosso, Head of Preservation and Daniela Currò, Preservation Officer in the Motion Picture Department discuss their experience:
“Holding in one’s hands the very same print that had been personally edited by Orson Welles 75 years ago provokes an emotion that’s just impossible to describe.”
Paolo Cherchi Usai, Senior Curator of Film, George Eastman House
