Prof. Herbert Feinstein talks with Lotte Eisner (1896-1983), curator of the Cinematheque of Paris, about the arts, methods and politics of collecting and preserving film classics at the Cinematheque, whose state subsidy was recently abolished by Andre Malraux. Eisner was restored to her job after a public scandal raised by filmmakers Jean Renoir, Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol and others.
