BENEFITING: GEORGE EASTMAN MUSEUM
Since we exceeded our goal of $750 to conserve "OATHBOUND" I've asked Stills Archivist Nancy Kauffman to select another one-sheet (28" x 41") lithograph poster for conservation. Nancy has chosen "THE SILENT WITNESS" (1917) with beautiful graphics and colors that are still vivid after 94 years! The poster will be brushed to remove dust, washed to release embedded dirt and mounted on archival paper so it can be safely displayed. And guess what? It looks like George Eastman House may have the only remaining print of this film! It's in 16mm so it could be restored....more later!
