Pic of the Day: Article from Ann Arbor News, 1979

Today’s pic is something a bit different. While floating around the web I ran across this clipping from the Ann Arbor [Michigan] News, dated April 14, 1979. The Ann Arbor Film Cooperative was sponsoring what I believe to be the first retrospective of Timothy’s work. Tim was in attendance, and introduced showings of The World’s Greatest Sinner, Tweet’s Ladies of Pasadena, Tarzana, Waterhole #3, One-Eyed Jacks, Paths of Glory and The Killing.

The mere thought of such an event, especially as early as 1979 and with Tim actually there, makes my heart happy. How I wish I could have been there. As I find out more about this happening, I will definitely pass it along to you.

  1. The Ann Arbor Film Coop was an organization that hosted films on campus throughout the year. The Ann Arbor Film Festival, a separate organization, was founded in 1962, prior to the Ann Arbor Film Coop, and has obviously outlasted it.


    • Aha! Thanks for that clarification! It sounds like the co-op kind of got absorbed by the festival, which is what I suspected after doing a bit of research but wasn’t too sure. I’ll change the entry to reflect that. Thanks again!
