FROM THIS EPISODE

Dennis Bartok and Jeff Joseph know their way around film prints. For years, Jeff Joseph dealt closely in 35mm and 16mm prints of classic movies, even resulting in his own arrest. Bartok and Joseph now recount the history of this bizarre period of illegal collectible activity in their book A Thousand Cuts: The Bizarre Underground World of Collectors and Dealers Who Saved the Movies and today, they discuss the 1970s FBI film and print seizures targeting gay male celebrities and the fervor that exists for the very finite life of the film reel itself.
