Michael Douglas Donating 3 Dozen Film Prints to New York Museum

Movies News

Academy Award winner Michael Douglas is known for his rather fruitful movie career. But the actor also has a rather extensive personal collection of 35mm and 16mm prints, which he plans to give away to Rochester’s George Eastman Museum.

Officials at the photography museum located on the estate of Kodak’s founder say that the Douglas collection of 35mm and 16mm prints, 37 in all, includes more than 30 that he starred in or produced.

According to the museum’s director, Bruce Barnes, the Wall Street actor’s interest in donating stemmed from his visit to Rochester last May, when he was honored with the George Eastman Award for his film contributions.

Among the prints to be donated include 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and 1987’s Wall Street, both of which he starred in.
