The Interview aired today on “Here and Now” a public radio program that is heard on public radio stations around the U.S.
From a Hear and Now Web Page:
The Yale University library has acquired a collection of about 2,700 VHS tapes – mostly horror and exploitation films.
The tapes are part of a new archive – the first of its kind at an academic institution – that preserves VHS tapes not only for the movies on them, but also for their boxes’ artwork and copy, the trailers at the beginning and other release-specific content.
