ON FILM: Melton Barker; Texas Archive of the Moving Image

  

In a rebroadcast from Dec. 29, 2012, Charles talks with Caroline Frick, executive director of the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (www.texasarchive.org).  Frick talks about the organization's efforts in discovering over 200 versions of Melton Barker's "The Kidnappers Foil" - a short, "Little Rascals"-inspired film that was shot over & over again in various locations, with the same storyline and script, but with different children in the starring roles.  Versions of the film were reportedly shot in El Paso & Las Cruces.  "The Kidnappers Foil" was recently added to the National Film Registry, and TAMI is looking for more versions of "The Kidnappers Foil" which remain undiscovered.  www.meltonbarker.org

As part of the Plaza Classic Film Festival, the Texas Archive of the Moving Image will be in El Paso as part of the Texas Film Roundup.  Take your old 8mm, 16mm, VHS, Beta, DVD, and all other home movies to the Plaza Theatre on Aug. 10 & 11, noon-7 p.m., and they will digitize and preserve those films for free. 

Aired Aug. 10, 2013.
