PC Projects restores Lucille Ball movie

J Crosby, owner of PC Projects in Jamestown, recently presented a DVD movie to the Lucy/Desi Museum's Theresa Morris containing footage of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz attending the premiere of their feature movie "Forever Darling" at Jamestown's Palace Theater in February 1956.

PC Projects digitizes old home movies, videos, photos, and slides. Crosby recently discovered this rare footage in a collection of home movies belonging to an area client who then gave permission to share it with the Lucy/Desi Museum and community.

While many home movies only document and showcase individual family history, occasionally people, places, and events of public interest or historical significance were captured on home movies. Crosby has digitized films of downtown Frewsburg circa 1941, the New York World's Fair from 1964-65, the building of the Kinzua Dam, and a dried-up Niagara Falls, among others.

Besides preserving old family memories to pass from generation to generation, Crosby encourages everyone with home movies that may be of interest to the general public to share their historical gems with the community.
