The Politics of Preservation

Caroline Frick

  • Contains new histories (based upon original, primary research) of film preservation organizations, including Hollywood studios as well as federal organizations
  • Uncovers a series of "lost film' stories, such as the work of Melton Barke and kiddie films from the 1930s-70s
