Opening of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

It is an incredible honor and pleasure that we had the opportunity to preserve this preparatory sketch of one of the backdrops by JC Backings for the classic suspense film “North by Northwest” from 1959. The museum is now open to the public and the work can be viewed in the galleries!
