This ground-breaking history, covering the U.S. institutions that have taken on the task of collecting and preserving our cinematic legacy, details the evolution of a 20th-century discipline: film preservation.

Slide not only provides historical information on the slowly-evolving institutional efforts to save decomposing nitrate film, he also addresses some of the issues archives wrestle with in their attempts to preserve and sometimes restore these films. Tragically, also documented are films that have been lost in the care of major archives.
