AFA Collection - Edward R. Pressman Collection

With over 80 diverse motion pictures to his credit, producer Edward R. Pressman has forged an original and eclectic career, beginning with the founding of Pressman Film in 1969. Pressman has fostered the early careers of many filmmakers, including Brian DePalma, Terrence Malick, and Oliver Stone. His filmography is a variety of high-profile, indie, and international projects, including “Sisters” (1973), “Badlands” (1973), “Das Boot” (1981), “Conan the Barbarian” (1982), “Plenty” (1985), “Wall Street” (1987), “Reversal of Fortune” (1990), “The Crow” (1994), “American Psycho” (2000), “Thank You For Smoking” (2005), and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” (2010). In 2009, Pressman Film began the process of depositing their extensive company holdings with the Academy, including paper materials (housed at the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library), and film and video elements now stored at the Academy Film Archive. The film collection contains over 250 items, consisting of theatrical prints, printing elements and videotapes related to the films produced by Pressman or his production company, as well as films acquired by Pressman Films for reference purposes.
