Motion Picture and Television Fund Collection

Walter Pidgeon, Greer Garson, Gregory Peck, and others, July 30, 1967.

The Motion Picture and Television Fund was created in 1921 to act as a safety net of health and social services for workers in the entertainment industry. Since the early 1940s, some of those services have included a hospital, retirement community, and long-term care facilities at their campus in Woodland Hills, California. The material in this collection is predominantly a mix of 16mm and 35mm film prints which were discovered in a projection booth on their campus while they were cleaning out the space for construction. Many of the films document the institution's history, and are recordings of parties, parades, dedications, and advertisements. Since 2017, the Archive has housed 55 items in the Motion Picture and Television Fund Collection, including several Three Stooges short subjects, home movies, and prints of the Academy Award® nominated documentary about the Motion Picture and Television Fund, "The House Without a Name" (1956).
