Charles Durning Collection

AFA Collection -Charles Durning Collection

Prolific stage and screen actor, Charles Durning donated his personal collection of 16mm prints and videotapes to the Academy in 2011. Mr. Durning, who received two Academy Award nominations for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, was an avid film collector and had amassed a large video collection along with over a hundred 16mm prints of feature films. The prints in his collection consist mainly of films that he admired, along with a number of the films he appeared in as an actor. Mr. Durning also donated several dozen videotape copies of his many television appearances on talk shows, along with “behind the scenes” interviews and short “making of” documentaries from films he worked on. A small collection of family home movies shot in the 1960s was also included in the donation.
