There were also programs devoted to Vitaphone shorts, early western shorts, the work of Kenneth Anger, Johnny Carson before "The Tonight Show," Hearst Metrotone newsreels from 1956, the aborted production of Orson Welles's IT'S ALL TRUE. This year's event was dedicated to film preservationist Robert Gitt, and the program book includes an interview with him and quite a few laudatory full-page ads.
