Are you guys at the 92nd St. Y planning to make your archives
public/available online? What a great resource you must have.
-- Tom Fine
PS -- Archive.org has the wonderful Prelinger collection. One can get lost
all day looking at old industrial/educational films and documentaries. Of
particular interest on this list might be the original ERPI film on optical
soundtracks for motion pictures (search under Western Electric) and RCA's
promotional film on its Living Stereo series of records (search under RCA).
Also a lot of great stuff on early television. Oh, also a great film about
radio theater and sound effects. It keeps bouncing between a kid listening
to a western on the radio, a film version of the story and the radio actors
and SFX people creating the story for an aural experience.
