    Congratulations to Mr. Feltenstein. His efforts and passion should be an inspiration to others in similarly inluential positions.

    About the award...

The National Board created the award in his honor to recognize those who contribute to the history of film. The inaugural winner was Peter Bogdanovich in 1996 for his book, Who the Devil Made It? Others honorees include Wesleyan film professor Jeanine Basinger for her book Silent Stars and director Martin Scorsese for his film My Voyage to Italy.

    i really appreciate what has been coming from Warners and the care with which most of the product is given. Certainly it is the work of many people but they must be given a directions from the top. Congratulations Mr. Feltenstein.

    I know that with out his efforts there are many priceless titles that I know I may never have seen again.

    Three cheers to George and may he continue to reign.[​IMG]

    Kudos to a man who has done some truly outstanding work since the heyday of Laserdiscs. For those of us who care about film his name on a project means alot. Now with that said, how about Grand Prix Mr. Feltenstein?
