Michael_Douglas_Navy3   Academy Award winner Michael Douglas (right) is donating his personal collection of more than three dozen film prints to Rochester’s George Eastman Museum. Officials at the photo museum located on the estate of Kodak’s founder say that the Douglas collection of 35 mm and 16 mm prints, 37 in all, includes more than 30 that he starred in or produced.

   Museum Director Bruce Barnes says Douglas was inspired to make the donation after visiting Rochester last May to receive the George Eastman Award for his contributions to the film industry. These kind of donations for posterity sake are quite uncommon.

   Douglas won an Oscar for Best Picture for producing 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and a statuette for Best Actor for his performance in 1987’s Wall Street. Those two films are among the donated prints. Others include The China Syndrome, Romancing the Stone, and Traffic.

   Bravo to Michael Douglas!
