This is sad news indeed, and I absolutely second the praise for Mr.
Mitchell's devotion to cinema. Last year, when I ordered a few tapes from
Darker Image in preparation for a course on anti-communist propaganda in
film noir, Mitchell not only filled out my tapes with hours of carefully
hand-picked supplementary material but also packed the box with photocopies
of relevant material from his own writings. One wonders how many others he
has helped with his research and generosity.
