Re: “The Day of the Triffids

Re: “The Day of the Triffids”

Just saw a this film today 10/31/2010 at MOMA in NYC. Appearing in person to talk about the film and his work on cleaning up the celluloid was film conservator Mychael Hyatt who has spent more than five years painstakingly restorin this film, even going so far as to remove innumerable specks of imbedded dirt by hand with a jeweler's loupe and a series of needles. Hyatt, who also worked on the restorations of Spartacus, My Fair Lady and Sweet Smell of Success, talked at length his particuylarly complex labor of love. The colors and clarity are now pristine and the film holds up as yet another of those 1960's sci-fi gems.
