THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS AND SMITHSONIAN VIDEO invite you to join them
in a thrilling journey of rediscovery.
 
THE LIBRARY OF CONGRASS VIDEO COLLECTION makes an important milestone
for film buffs, historians, libraries, and public and private
collections. The ORIGINS OF AMERICAN FILM series represents the first
six volumes in an ongoing program designed to make widely available
early archival prints help in the Library of Congrass's vast Motion
Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division. Selections include
works that have rarely been seen, and never before released on
videotape.
 
A number of the films chosen have only survived in foreign film
archives, long ago abandoned by their distributors, or in "paper
prints" originally deposited in the Library of Congrass for copyright
protection. Each film has been carefully restored and transferred to
safety film, from which the video masters were made.
 
EACH VIDEOTAPE IN THIS SERIES:
        --runs between 79 and 129 minu.;
        --including new soundtracks composed and played Philip Carli;
        --comes with extensive, informative liner notes by Scott
          Simmon;
        --is handsomely and sturdily boxed.
