Hartford, CT, May 30, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- It was a B Movie bonanza in Tapeworks today, as noted film authority Jeanine Basinger narrated a companion DVD track to the Budd Boetticher Western, “The Tall ‘T’” starring Randolph Scott and Maureen O’Sullivan.
This is the first in a series of Boetticher releases that will comprise a box set of the director's distinctive works.
A regular presence in the Hartford recording studio, Prof. Basinger has provided commentary on numerous titles while viewing the films with Chief Engineer Bill Ahearn at Tapeworks, and with a Hollywood production company simultaneously on a digital patch.
Jeanine Basinger is Corwin-Fuller Professor of Film Studies, and the Founder/Curator of the Cinema Archives at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut.
She is also a Trustee of the American Film Institute, a member of the Steering Committee of the National Center for Film and Video Preservation, and one of the Board of Advisors for the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers.
Tapeworks is uniquely qualified for this type of work with its close ties to Hollywood production studios and specialized film and ADR equipment.
