UCLA Festival of Preservation

The Mortal Storm  (1940)

Each UCLA Festival of Preservation is an eclectic survey of the Archive's latest restoration work. The 2019 edition included director Frank Borzage's WWII classic The Mortal Storm (1940) with James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan. Plus, rarely seen silent films, golden-age TV treasures, Laurel and Hardy, noir thrillers, animation and more, looking better than ever thanks to our preservation team, digital lab and partners. As in years past, the festival offered a "deep dive into the seldom-explored sea that is American film history, alternating between extreme rarities seen nowhere else and new prints of beloved movie classics" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).
