"Takes in Strays"

The Los Angeles Times for May 8 features this piece on the Academy's orphan film events of May 10 and 11.  Love the phrase "takes in strays."  Writer Mark Olsen talked with filmmakers Penelope Spheeris and Jim Hoberman, as well as Milestone Film and Video's Dennis Doros and Randy Haberkamp, who runs the show at the Academy's film archive, its Herrick library, its Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, and the forthcoming museum.
