As the Hollywood studios attempt to transition to the digital age, there’s been some bumpy roads along the journey as copyright and ways to access get sorted out. Today brings an example of how to do things right as Paramount have launched The Paramount Vault, which, according to their official description “showcases a collection of Paramount full-length films and clips including selections that range from black-and-white to color, comedy to horror, and everything in between.”
While the selection isn’t massive (yet, hopefully), it includes a number of highlights. Notably there’s Sean Byrne‘s deliciously wicked The Loved Ones, John Cassavetes‘ drama Love Streams, Wachowskis‘ impressive debut Bound, Noah Baumbach‘s overlooked Margot at the Wedding, as well as films featuring Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis Presley, and more.
