Yale Collection of Classic Films: 50th Anniversary Cenebration

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

The Yale Film Study celebrates the 50th anniversary of the acquisition of the Yale Collection of Classic Films, formerly the John Griggs Collection of Classic Films, with a special Treasures from the Yale Film Archive event. This collection of more than 200 prints was the nucleus of the University’s nascent film archive, and it has supported and inspired generations of Yale film scholars in their teaching, learning, and research. The night will feature 16mm selections from Yale’s first motion picture collection, including THE MARK OF ZORRO with Douglas Fairbanks and THE BALLOONATIC with Buster Keaton, presented with live musical accompaniment by Donald Sosin.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow, ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
