The Tony Pugliese Film Collection

The Tony Pugliese collection of 16mm film prints was assembled by film collector Tony Pugliese during his lifetime and was donated to the Harvard Film Archive in summer 2010 by the collector's daughter, Michelle Mollica. This seemingly eclectic group of classical Hollywood films ranging from 1932 to 1965 is threaded together by the recurring presence of actor Paul Muni. Some of the films also star other Hollywood screen legends like Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson and Bette Davis. However, Pugliese's interest in Muni's films is truly the highlight of the collection.
