A DVD boxset that I picked up in New York and am exstaically making my way through is the Nation Film Preseration Foundations 4 disc boxset entitled Treasures From The American Film Archives. This wonderful set (I can't rave enough about it) collects 50 films dating from the 1890's up to the 1980's. This is the NFPF's official site in which you can watch some clips. I really recomend that you check it out.

Beautiful, but 60$ at Amazon for each of the 2 box-set is a bit exaggerated, whaddaya think?

I just picked it up at Virgin Megastore in Times Square for just over $60. I believe most if not all the profits go to restoring films.

  One of the clips you can watch is called "The Teddy Bears."  A couple of yrs ago when I was a freshman I took a media class that documented the changes in cinema, and one of the movies we watched was the Teddy Bears.

  It is a bizarre take on Goldilocks and the Three Bears with a cameo by a Teddy Roosevelt look-alike toward the end.  For a better mental picture of it, apply the ending of Great Silence to this movie.  The whole class was roaring when the credits rolled on this one.
