Sometimes items of tremendous significance and worth can go undiscovered or missing for many years, locked away in a self storage unit. It is satisfying news when those items wind up in the right hands. Opening this week is a 90-day exhibit of a massive collection of original poems, first-edition books, signed pages and other unique pieces by the famous African American poet, Langston Hughes. All of the works were discovered in a Millville, NJ, storage unit. [More]

Technicolor has announced that it has donated the older section of its film archive collection to the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, a museum in upstate New York. Eastman House was already housing the world’s largest collection of Technicolor camera negatives. The current donation from Technicolor includes cameras, printers, photos, drawings, and documents that show the creative process that went into the production of Technicolor movies produced between 1915 and 1974.
Until being donated to Eastman House, Technicolor’s archive was kept in its Los Angeles vaults. Technicolor was considering simply throwing the collection out until the George Eastman House agreed to take the archives, Eastman House curator Caroline Frick Page informed the Associated Press. Page called the collection “one of the most unique pieces of film history existing in archives for study today.” [More]
