film preservation & restoration rebel without a cause

In 2012, The Film Foundation helped to save over 25 films, representing a diverse selection of motion pictures.

(1955, d. Nicholas Ray)

Restoration was completed from an 8K scan of the original CinemaScope (widescreen 2.55:1) camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI). Due to color fading, the original camera negative could no longer yield an acceptable photochemical print. The stereo soundtrack was reconstructed at Chace Audio by Deluxe from the magnetic soundtrack stripes of release prints, commonly referred to as “Fox hole” prints due to the smaller perforations found on CinemaScope prints that were a product of Twentieth Century Fox. The original stereo soundtrack master was erased by the studio so that the magnetic stock could be re-used for another film. (This was a common practice for most studios at the time, as it was difficult to obtain good quality magnetic stock.) Director Nicholas Ray shot this film using early singlestrip Eastman color 5248 negative which was a low-cost alternative to the 3-strip Technicolor process and provided more flexibility for camera placement. Unfortunately, this early color negative yielded poor color imagery. This was a “Warnercolor” feature, which meant that the Eastman negative would be processed and optical sections created

2

at the Warner Bros. laboratory, rather than at Technicolor.  The Warner Bros. lab created optical sections by shooting the single-strip negative sections to separation positives, then shooting back to single-strip negative, which yielded soft images with heavy grain.   The original camera negative of REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE sustained heavy physical damage due to the popularity of the feature and the large number of theatrical re-releases. The camera negatives for reels 3 and 4 were discarded by the studio many years ago as they had been entirely damaged in printing. Reels 7 and 8 were extremely fragile and had sustained heavy damage in the perforations throughout the reels. For the restoration, Warner Bros. scanned and recombined YCM separation master positives for the missing camera negative sections. They also used the YCMs to replace sections of damaged picture negative in reels 1, 2, 6 and 7. The original Technicolor dye-transfer answer print was used for color reference. The final elements created from this preservation project will include a 35mm YCM separation master from the raw 8K scan of the OCN, a 35mm intermediate negative from the final 4K color corrected restoration, a 4K Digital Cinema Master from the final restoration, a 35mm soundtrack negative 5.1, and a 35mm release print. Restored by Warner Bros. in collaboration with The Film Foundation. Restoration funding provided by Warner Bros., Gucci, and The Film Foundation.

Nicholas Ray’s iconic film tells the story of a troubled teen, Jim Stark (James Dean), who moves to a new town and quickly makes enemies with the local high school gang. The film immortalized James Dean; launched the Hollywood careers of Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, and Dennis Hopper; and captured the zeitgeist of the 1950s through the prism of teenage angst.

film preservation & restoration

the

tales of hoffmann (1951, dirs. Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger) Written, directed and produced by the celebrated filmmaking team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, THE TALES OF HOFFMANN is based on the Jacques Offenbach opera, Les Contes d’Hoffmann. The film was a continuation of their earlier success with THE RED SHOES, and was the Archers’ experiment to make an entire film that was “purely dance.” Set in Nuremberg, Germany, the young Hoffmann, played by Robert Rounseville, recounts three past loves played by Moira Shearer, Ludmilla Tchérina, and Ann Ayars during the course of a ballet featuring his new love interest, also played by Moira Shearer. THE TALES OF HOFFMANN was nominated for two Academy Awards, for Hein Heckroth’s art direction-set decoration and costume design. The film won a Special Award and was nominated for the Grand Prize at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival. It also won the Silver Bear for Best Musical at the 1951 Berlin International Film Festival.

Restoration is currently in progress; work is underway to identify the best elements. Several existing sources are available, including the photochemical preservation completed in the 1980s by the BFI, and vintage reference prints from Martin Scorsese’s personal collection. Both Mr. Scorsese and Thelma Schoonmaker Powell are consultants on this restoration project. The original negatives will be scanned at 4K resolution and then digitally restored by Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI). Restoration techniques include re-alignment of the color records, image stabilization, restoration of areas damaged by mold, and clean-up of surface dirt and scratches. Digital color correction will be completed by MPI colorist Ray Grabowski, who also worked on the restorations of THE RED SHOES and THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP.

The soundtrack will be restored digitally by John Polito at Audio Mechanics in Burbank. During the final film-out, the restored sound will be married to the restored picture in order to create a pristine 35mm negative and prints. A DCP will also be created for digital screenings and public access. Restored by The Film Foundation in association with the BFI National Archive and STUDIOCANAL. Restoration funding provided by The Franco-American Cultural Fund, a unique partnership between the Directors Guild of America (DGA); the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA); the Société des Auteurs, Compositeurs et Editeurs de Musique (SACEM); and the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW), The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Louis B. Mayer Foundation and The Film Foundation.

THE TALES OF HOFFMANN was filmed using the 3-strip Technicolor process, the same format as THE RED SHOES (1948) and THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP (1943), and the original camera negatives exhibit the same devastating mold and mis-registration issues. Surviving prints of THE TALES OF HOFFMANN represent a shortened version of the film, requiring research to evaluate and utilize various source materials to reconstitute the original release version.


films 4agnès varda directed by

Images courtesy of Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata.

Agnès Varda has been at the vanguard of independent filmmaking for over 60 years. As the only female director of the French New Wave, Varda made her mark in 1962 with her breakthrough feature, CLÉO FROM 5 TO 7. Her work, which shifts easily between fiction and documentary, defies categorization. Philosophically feminist but not dogmatic, her portrayals of female protagonists are empathetic and unforgettable. Varda directed several films during the years she spent in California. Working in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Ciné-Tamaris, and the Cineteca di Bologna, TFF will restore: UNCLE YANCO (1967) In Varda’s personal portrait of her uncle, Jean Varda, the filmmaker researches her own family history, visiting her bohemian Uncle Yanco who is living amongst artists on a pier near San Francisco.

These four films have been restored by Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata from the original picture and sound negatives, provided by Agnès Varda’s production company, Ciné-Tamaris. Each film was scanned at 4K resolution; LIONS LOVE was restored at 4K, the three other films at 2K.

BLACK PANTHERS (aka HUEY) (1968) Shot in exquisite 16mm color, Varda’s documentary short is her personal tribute to activist Huey Newton, made while Varda lived in California and witnessed first-hand the beginnings of the radical Panthers party.

Ms. Varda followed the restoration closely and oversaw the work at L’Immagine Ritrovata. The sound restoration on all of the films was undertaken using the original magnetic tracks, with both French and English soundtracks restored for UNCLE YANCO and MUR MURS. The resulting preservation elements for each film include a 35mm print, DCP, and HDCAM-SR.

LIONS LOVE (1969) Varda’s feature follows Gerome Ragni and James Rado, composers of the musical Hair, and Andy Warhol muse Viva, as they explore the Hollywood lifestyle, while at the same time showing how difficult it can be for female filmmakers to raise financing for projects.

Restored in 2013 by Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata. Restoration made possible by The Film Foundation, in association with Ciné-Tamaris. Restoration funding provided by the Annenberg Foundation, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

MUR MURS (1981) Varda captures the street art scene in this documentary short about outdoor wall murals in Los Angeles, including one, Pig Paradise, painted on the side of a slaughterhouse.

two for the road (1967, d. Stanley Donen) Successful architect Mark (Albert Finney) and his wife Joanna (Audrey Hepburn) take a road trip and reflect on their turbulent ten-year marriage. The film was considered visually innovative for a Hollywood picture at the time due to director Stanley Donen’s use of non-linear storytelling and frequent jump cutting, popularized by the French New Wave filmmakers. The film’s exceptional widescreen cinematography by Christopher Challis, the nuanced performances by Finney and Hepburn, and the frank depiction of a complex relationship make this one of Stanley Donen’s most poignant endeavors. The film’s legendary composer, Henry Mancini (BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, THE PINK PANTHER), considered the score he wrote for TWO FOR THE ROAD his favorite.

Restored by Twentieth Century Fox in collaboration with The Film Foundation.

A full 4K digital restoration was performed at Sony Colorworks from the original 35mm camera negative. The film was scanned, restored and recorded back to film at 4K. The original color negative contained clear signs of uneven color fading from shot to shot, particularly in the optical sections, which necessitated urgent attention. Audio restoration was completed digitally at Audio Mechanics.


investigation of a citizen above suspicion (1970, d. Elio Petri) This anti-establishment film opens with Roman police inspector (Gian Maria Volonté) brutally murdering his mistress and methodically planting evidence that will implicate himself. As the homicide investigation continues and it becomes clear he is the culprit, it appears that his powerful position will protect him from being accused. Ennio Morricone’s score enhances the psychological terror of Volonté’s chilling performance. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Petri’s subversive thriller remains relevant and engaging in a modern political landscape. A boldly-directed melodrama with darkly satirical undertones, INVESTIGATION OF A CITIZEN ABOVE SUSPICION is an indictment of authoritarianism.

The original camera negative was scanned at 4K resolution at L’Immagine Ritrovata and the raw 4K files were then moved to Colorworks to undergo color correction with Sheri Eisenberg. Digital tools were used at L’Immagine Ritrovata to remove scratches and dirt and to repair torn frames in the original negative. As each reel of restored images was completed, the files were sent to Colorworks for assimilation into the film and additional image restoration.

Chace Audio by Deluxe restored the Italian language soundtrack from the original 35mm magnetic tracks. New 4K DCPs were produced for the premiere at the 2012 Venice Film Festival and subsequent theatrical presentations, along with new HD masters for the forthcoming Criterion Blu-ray release. A new 35mm negative will be created for preservation and to produce new prints for exhibition. Both the raw 4K data and the restored 4K data will be archived.  

Restored in 4K by Colorworks in collaboration with Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata. Funding provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, The Film Foundation, and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

film preservation & restoration

the

lusty men Veteran rodeo champion Jeff McCloud (Robert Mitchum) returns to his childhood home and meets a young couple, Wes and Louise Merritt. Falling for Louise (Susan Hayward), Jeff agrees to train Wes (Arthur Kennedy) to be a rodeo rider. Director Nicholas Ray spent months observing and shooting the rodeo circuit to give this Western a realistic, modern aesthetic. Reflective of its time and place, Ray mirrors back the dreams and fears of Americans in the mid-twentieth century. THE LUSTY MEN was restored from the original 35mm camera negative using traditional photochemical methods. The original soundtrack negative had been destroyed, therefore sound restoration was completed from a 35mm nitrate re-record negative held by the Royal Film Archive of Belgium. Warner Bros. also used a nitrate picture dupe from Belgium to replace sections damaged in the original camera negative. Restored by Warner Bros. in collaboration with The Film Foundation and The Nicholas Ray Foundation.

(1952, d. Nicholas Ray)

death of a salesman (1951, d. Laslo Benedek) This motion picture version of Arthur Miller’s play is directed and shot with the spare, dreamlike intensity of German expressionism. Stanley Kramer’s contract with Columbia limited him to producing low-budget pictures and this adaptation could have simply been a filmed rendition of the stage play. But Kramer hired director Laslo Benedek and cinematographer Franz Planer to give the film its dramatic visual style. Several actors from the original Broadway production were recruited, with Fredric March cast as Willy Loman, giving one of the greatest performances of his career. The original release was plagued by the House Un-American Activities Committee’s investigation of Arthur Miller, and the allegation that DEATH OF A SALESMAN was an insult to the American system of capitalism. Anti-Communist protesters picketed the New York premiere. Despite the controversy, Laslo Benedek received the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globe Award as best director of the year for his work on the film, which has been out of circulation in recent years, making its restoration and re-release all the more critical.

The original black-and-white safety 35mm negative was scanned at 4K resolution at Cinetech/Deluxe laboratory.  The film exhibits a moderate amount of scratches, dirt and tearing. The raw 4K files have been ingested into the full 4K workflow system at Sony Colorworks, and colorist David Bernstein has begun the initial grading. Digital image restoration is undergoing testing at Colorworks and MTI Film in Los Angeles. Restored by The Film Foundation.

national film preservation foundation nfpf federal grant program 2012 marked the thirteenth cycle of federal cash grants offered by the NFPF through monies authorized and appropriated by the U.S. Congress under the National Film Preservation Act of 1996. The NFPF grants fund the creation of preservation masters and public access copies of culturally and historically significant orphan films in American libraries, archives and museums. Under the terms of the legislation, the NFPF is required to raise private matching funds to sustain its operations, making The Film Foundation’s support essential in underwriting these expenses. The NFPF has delivered federal-supported grants to institutions in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, and has helped preserve more than 1,870 films to date.

avant-garde masters grants The Avant-Garde Masters Grant is solely dedicated to the preservation of American experimental film. Typically produced with limited funds and few commercial prospects, experimental films are among those most likely to suffer deterioration and loss. The artists rarely have the funds or the technical knowledge to properly care for their elements, making support from the NFPF and The Film Foundation invaluable. Established in 2002 and fully funded by The Film Foundation, the grants provide $50,000 annually for the preservation of these important works. Awarded by an expert panel including critics, scholars and archivists, the grants enable filmmakers to work directly with the archives to preserve and protect their films. Over the past ten years, the initiative has saved works from over 50 artists including Kenneth Anger, Samuel Beckett, Bruce Conner, Hollis Frampton, Ernie Gehr, George and Mike Kuchar, Norman Mailer, Jonas Mekas, Tom Palazzolo, Carolee Schneemann, Andy Warhol and others, making them available in many cases for the first time in decades. In 2012, the grant supported five institutions: Library of Congress AI-YE (1950), Ian Hugo’s impressionistic study of mankind, with music by Ozzie Smith BELLS OF ATLANTIS (1953), Ian Hugo’s adaptation of a poem by Anaïs Nin, with music by Louis and Bebe Barron JAZZ OF LIGHTS (1954), Portrait of Times Square by Ian Hugo, featuring Anaïs Nin and the blind poet Moondog MELODIC INVERSION (1958), Study by Ian Hugo, set to the music of Arnold Schoenberg Anthology Film Archives GREEN DESIRE (1965), Mike Kuchar’s mood piece exploring the transition from adolescence to adulthood Selections from Aldo Tambellini’s “Black Film Series” Images courtesy of Harvard Film Archive.

education the

storyof movies

The foundation’s innovative educational program, The Story of Movies (SOM), introduces students to a variety of classic films and helps them learn about the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of cinema. Students are taught to understand the visual language of film and encouraged to apply their criticalthinking skills to all moving-image communications. Through engaging lessons, they learn visual literacy and the importance of preserving cinema for their generation and beyond.

In 2012, a new lesson was added to The Story of Movies website. The teacher’s guide and student activities created around Harold Lloyd’s THE FRESHMAN (1925, dirs. Sam Taylor and Fred Newmeyer) provide a unique context for students to practice their inference skills, as they learn to identify nuances of meaning within the moving images. The lessons surrounding THE FRESHMAN explore the historical and cultural environment depicted in the film, that of American college life in the 1920s.

digital preservation As contemporary motion pictures are increasingly created entirely in the digital realm, the preservation of digital content presents a complex set of challenges to preservationists. In response to this urgent situation, The Film Foundation, in partnership with IBM, has launched an initiative to raise awareness of the need for digital preservation and to develop resources for filmmakers in order to communicate current archival recommendations.

film and digital storage recommendations

The foundation hosted a conference in March to discuss these issues and draft a working document based on preliminary research and input from archivists, filmmakers, studios, labs, and post-production facilities. The foundation is also creating an informative campaign targeted to independent filmmakers. In 2013, the foundation will host events around the country to introduce the program at archives, festivals, museums, industry organizations, and educational institutions.

The Avant-Garde Masters Grant was created in 2003 by the National Film Preservation Foundation and The Film Foundation to preserve American avant-garde cinema.  Funded by TFF, the program has helped save more than 105 films in its first decade, making many works available to audiences for the first time. TFF and NFPF marked the anniversary with screenings at venues around the world, kicking off with a presentation at the Tribeca Film Festival. The April 21st event featured a panel discussion,

Cinema visionaries may 18 Gucci and TFF host restoration premieres of ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA and IL CASO MATTEI Gucci extended its commitment to preserving the artistic and cultural legacy of cinema with a 2012 contribution to restore Sergio Leone’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA (1984) and Francesco Rosi’s IL CASO MATTEI (1972). To date, Gucci has donated nearly $3 million to The Film Foundation, funding Filmmaker Francesco Rosi and Venice the restoration of eight iconic films through the Cinema Visionaries program: A WOMAN UNDER THE Film Festival Director Alberto Barbera INFLUENCE (1974, d. John Cassavetes), LE AMICHE (1955, d. Michelangelo Antonioni), WANDA (1970, d. Barbara Loden), SENSO (1954, d. Luchino Visconti), IL GATTOPARDO (1963, d. Luchino Visconti), LA DOLCE VITA (1960, d. Federico Fellini), as well as ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA and IL CASO MATTEI. Gucci and the foundation also contributed to the restoration of WE CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN (1976, d. Nicholas Ray). ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA made its world restoration premiere at the 65th Cannes Film Festival on May 18th, with Robert De Niro, James Woods, Elizabeth McGovern, and Jennifer Connelly in attendance, along with the film’s legendary composer, Ennio Morricone. Leone’s final film originally premiered out of competition at Cannes in 1984. This newly restored version featured roughly 20 minutes of additional scenes that had never before been seen by audiences. IL CASO MATTEI had its world restoration premiere at the 69th Venice International Film Festival on August 31st. The event commemorated the 40th anniversary of the film’s release, and prior to the screening, the festival honored director Francesco Rosi with the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. Both films made their U.S. restoration debuts in New York in October: IL CASO MATTEI was presented at the 50th New York Film Festival, and Robert De Niro introduced ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA to a sold-out audience at MoMA’s 10th “To Save and Project” Festival of Film Preservation, followed by a week-long run at New York’s Film Forum.

hollywood foreign press association august 9 Steven Spielberg accepts contribution on behalf of TFF and highlights the importance of analog film preservation The Hollywood Foreign Press Association held its annual installation luncheon on August 9th at the Beverly Hills Hotel, awarding over $1.2 million in grants to entertainment-related charities and scholarship programs.   Steven Spielberg accepted the HFPA’s generous $250,000 grant to The Film Foundation and reiterated the important and urgent need for the preservation of moving images, particularly analog film as the industry shifts to digital production. He described the process as “a race against the clock,” while at the same time reminding the industry why preservation is a labor of love. “This has been the stuff of dreams since 1895 and I will remain loyal to it until its dying day. Today, its years are numbered, but I will remain loyal to this analog art form until the last lab closes.” Over the past 16 years, the HFPA has contributed over $3.6 million to The Film Foundation in support of its preservation and restoration projects. This year’s grant will help fund the restoration of Federico Fellini’s LA STRADA (1954).

toute la mémoire du monde festival

“...these are great films that marked me at a young age, and that opened my eyes to cinema and to the world.”

november 27–december 2

– martin scorsese

TFF Screening Series La Cinémathèque Française hosted its inaugural festival of preservation, appropriately named in honor of Alain Resnais’ acclaimed 1956 short film about La Bibliothéque nationale de France. The festival included the screening program, “Inspirations,” a tribute to The Film Foundation, featuring a selection of restored films curated by Martin Scorsese. In his notes about the program Scorsese remarked, “The Film Foundation has restored almost 600 pictures of all types from all over the world. Many of those films have inspired me and opened my mind to new possibilities, and I return to them often. I realize now that all of these pictures were made during my childhood and early adolescence—nothing intentional, that’s just the way it happened. So, these are great films that marked me at a young age, and that opened my eyes to cinema and to the world.” The “Inspirations” program included: THE SHANGHAI GESTURE (1941, d. Josef von Sternberg) LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN (1945, d. John M. Stahl)

THE CHASE (1946, d. Arthur D. Ripley) MY DARLING CLEMENTINE (1946, d. John Ford)

THEY MADE ME A FUGITIVE (1947, d. Alberto Cavalcanti) THE RIVER (1951, d. Jean Renoir)

ON THE WATERFRONT (1954, d. Elia Kazan)

The festival also commemorated the ten-year anniversary of the Avant-Garde Masters program with “Avant-Garde Masters: A Decade of Preservation,” a retrospective of the grant program administered by the National Film Preservation Foundation and funded by The Film Foundation. Included in the screening program: BLUES (1969, d. Larry Gottheim) RABBIT’S MOON (1950–70, d. Kenneth Anger)

SYLVIA’S PROMISE (1962, d. George Kuchar) COSMIC RAY (1961, d. Bruce Conner)

PREFACES (1981, d. Abigail Child) THE VELVET UNDERGROUND IN BOSTON (1967, d. Andy Warhol)

Margaret Bodde and NFPF’s Jeff Lambert also participated in a round table discussion on restoration financing. Other panelists included: Jérôme Soulet (Gaumont), Serge Toubiana (Cinémathèque Française), Rosalie Varda (Ciné-Tamaris), Laurent Cormier (Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée), and Marc Lacan (Pathé).
