This short highlights the film preservation efforts of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Several scenes from early newsreels are shown, including the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906, the funeral of Edward VIII of England (the Duke of Windsor), and U.S. president William McKinley at the 1901 Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York the day before he was assassinated.Written by

Another entry in John Nesbitt's Passing Parade series with this one taking a look at early film preservation a the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Earlier in the series Nesbitt and director Lee made THE FILM THAT WAS LOST and it was a little bit better than this one but this film does offer some clips from some early cinema. Whereas the first film actually talked about the work going into saving films, this one here pretty much just shows us clips and talks about how this footage will be used in the future to look back and see how times were. We get footage of President William McKinley just hours before he was assassinated and we also get to see footage from the 1906 San Fran earthquake and then compare that footage to MGM's SAN FRANCISCO.
