Into the Digital Frontier: Film Preservation of DR. STRANGELOVE, WINGS 

The reconstruction of William A. Wellman’s Wings (1927), the first Best Picture (or “Best Production”) Academy Award winner, was a familiar story of how an old film print could be dusted off and used for the production of a Digital Cinema Package. By now, we all are aware of the importance of film preservation, which is part detective work and part modern technology. It has always been a painstaking pursuit of finding lost films or sequences, categorizing them, and placing them where they belong. But the whole issue of technology escapes me. I am not prepared to argue which is better: Film Prints or Digital. In addition to that, I was wholly uninterested in the technical aspects of the restoration of Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove (1964) — definitely not a lost film.
