The culmination of 3 months work, researching exhaustively to create the first public archive of The Complete Academy Award Winning Shorts.

And here it is.

I did contact the Library of Congress, and the Archives,
and they both only allow the 16mm film to be viewed on premises! Exhaustively searching every avenue known to man, we settled for 74 of 75 in the restrictions of time and money resources allocated the project.

I hope you enjoy these efforts, knowing is the most complete and only public archive now being made available anywhere on the Internet, or the world. Another KG First if you will.
