(B&W photographs) Program book for the annual festival held at UCLA to highlight their film/TV archive's recent preservation activities, containing erudite program notes for the individual films in the festival, including: THE GUNS OF NAVARONE (1961); LIFE WITH FATHER (1947); AROUND THE WORLD VIA GRAF ZEPPELIN (1929); HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940); THE DEVIL AND MISS JONES (1941); PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1943); A DOUBLE LIFE (1948); two films by Edgar G. Ulmer, DAMAGED LIVES (1933) and STRANGE ILLUSION (1945); THAT HAMILTON WOMAN (1941); and numerous others. There were also special programs devoted to: the early development of sound for motion pictures; early color videotape (at NBC); the local Los Angeles news program "The Big News" from the mid-1960s; and Anthology Film Archives. An amazingly varied and wide-ranging festival, keyed to the 100th anniversary of the "invention" of movies.
