An article about some film restorations that screened theatrically in 2013. Fandor, December 5.
There were a number of recently restored films that were suggested to me that are not included in the article. They include Beauty and the Beast (the Cocteau version), Bedtime Story, Change of Life, Crossroads, Dial M for Murder (Hitchcock’s 3-D version), The Epic of Everest, Experiment in Terror, Goha, Hands Over the City, Le 15/8, A Legend or Was It?, Letter from Siberia, Little Fugitive, Lucky Luciano, Magic Mushroom Mountain Movie, The Magliari, Model Shop, The Most Dangerous Game, The Outlaw and His Wife, Primary Stimulus, Queen Margot, Rome Open City, San Diego Surf, Sorcerer, Such a Pretty Little Beach, Suite California Stops & Passes, and Variations on a Cellophane Wrapper. I am certain that there are many more great restored films that also could have been included.
Among those discussed in the piece, both Cousin Jules and Mauvais Sang are currently playing in New York at the theater Film Forum. Additionally, films by Anne Charlotte Robertson will soon be screening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music during the remarkable series Migrating Forms. Here’s hoping that these restored films, as well as other wonderful ones, will come soon to a theater near you.
