Pic to honor Wasserman's 85th birthday

In honor of Lew Wasserman’s 85th birthday, Universal Studios has established a monetary gift to the UCLA Dept. of Film and Television to produce a Hollywood history docu (Daily Variety, March 16).

Titled “Amarcord: The Lew Wasserman Living History of Hollywood,” the long-term docu project will record the reminiscences and insights of entertainment industry pioneers residing at the Motion Picture and Television Fund home in Woodland Hills.

Documentary film students, working under UCLA Professor Marina Goldovskaya, will film the oral histories of those who participated in the first 100 years of moving-image history.

“The memories of our residents are true historical treasures that absolutely cannot be lost,” said William F. Haug, president/CEO of the Motion Picture and Television Fund. The collection will be made accessible to students and the community at the UCLA Archive Research and Study Center in Powell Library on the Westwood campus.

Wasserman, who stepped down recently from the board of directors of U’s parent company, Seagram, donated $10 million to UCLA (Daily Variety, Feb. 20).
