Excellent New Website

Just a quick note to pull your coat to an important new website. Those of you who lived in New York in the '70s and '80s will undoubtedly remember the wonderful William Everson. I have often said that no one could see every movie ever made and no one should, but Everson came as close as any human being I can imagine. More than that, Bill Everson was one of the most generous film scholars to ever walk this earth, a man who was always willing to help out a fellow film lover with an obscure piece of information or the loan of a rare print. His classes at the New School, which consisted mainly of screening material from his vast collection, were legendary and his program notes for those screenings were models of film history on the fly.

NYU's film program has recently added a splendid new website on which there is a windfall of materials from Bill's archives. I urge you to check it out.
