Treasures 5: The West, 1898-1938 (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Treasures 5: The West, 1898-1938
Writer: Scott Simmon
Producer: National Film Preservation Foundation
Abstract: A 10-hour, 3-DVD box set celebrating the dynamic, gender-bending, ethnically diverse West that flourished in early movies. Treasures 5 showcases 40 narrative and nonfiction films, including travelogues, home movies, newsreels, documentaries, and industrial films. The motion pictures are drawn from the preservation work of the nation's foremost film archives?the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, George Eastman House, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the National Archives, and UCLA Film & Television Archive—and include movies recently repatriated from the New Zealand Film Archive. Many of the films have not been screened in decades. None has been available before in high-quality video.
