"Mostly Lost: Identifying Unknown Films at the Library of Congress"

April 5, 2018, 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Did you ever wonder where those "once-thought-lost, just-rediscovered" films you hear about in the news from time to time were lurking? While some have been waiting patiently to be found in someones garage or even squirreled away in film archives, others are problem children that survived in plain sight, but due to the ravages of time, often exist only in fragments or with their opening titles and credits missing. These incomplete and unidentified films are not lost& they are just Mostly Lost. To help them regain their identity, the Library of Congress holds an annual film identification workshop where such films are projected for an audience of scholars, archivists and film enthusiasts who are encouraged to call out anything that they recognize on screen. This evenings screening, a preview of the program to be presented at this years Turner Classic Movies Classic Film Festival in Hollywood (April 26  29), will bring part of that workshop to you with screenings of newly identified films, insights in how to identify a film, and even give you a shot at identifying one live! Live musical accompaniment will be provided by Ben Model who will also present his fascinating "Undercranking: the Magic Behind the Slapstick" talk. 90  120 min.

April 12, 2018, 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
The first of three features scheduled to celebrate National Library Week (April 8  14); "Storm Center" is the story of a small town librarian (Bette Davis) who stands up to local pressure to remove a controversial book from the shelves on principal, not out of sympathy for its viewpoint. The first film to openly take on the witch-hunt mentality of the McCarthy era, its themes of book banning and censorship remain relevant. Screenwriters Daniel Taradash (who also directed) and Elick Moll were inspired to write the script after hearing President Dwight Eisenhower's 1953 speech at Dartmouth College in which he warned an anxious America against book burning. The feature will be preceded by the 20 minute, 1945 Oscar nominated short "Library of Congress," narrated by Ralph Bellamy. 85 min.

The film was adapted by Billy Wilder and Edwin Blum from the Broadway play by Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski, which was based on their experiences as prisoners in Luft Stalag 17B in Austria. 120 min.
