Louis B. Mayer Foundation

Formed by the legendary Hollywood producer, Louis B. Mayer, the foundation supports the restoration of films directed by or starring key figures in the history of film. In 2011, The Louis B. Mayer Foundation renewed its commitment to the preservation of films directed by Michael Powell, specifically Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s classic THE TALES OF HOFFMAN (1951), as well as HERZOG BLAUBARTS BURG [BLUEBEARD’S CASTLE] (1963). Previous support has helped fund the restoration of Powell and Pressburger’s THE RED SHOES (1948) and THE LIFE AND DEAT H OF COLONEL BLIMP (1943).
