Series X. Motion picture films and negatives, 1924-1939, undated 19 box(es)
Selected motion picture films and negatives (digitized version available on-site only)

This series holds 16mm films - original positive and negative, archival masters, and copy masters made by the repository for most, but not all of the originals. The 55 film titles consist of 60 separate films on 58 reels: some films exist in several elements: negatives and positives, film plus titles. Many of the original film reels were presumed to be nitrate and were labled as such during processing. An subsequent assessment was performed in 2017 which identified the reels as acetate in a high state of decomposition.
The films depict events from Hoffman's trip around the world for the Field Museum commission, including documentation of dancers and dancing; of Hoffman and friends; and of artists at work. The use copies on VHS videocassetes are part of Series VI. Descriptions are taken from several sources: labels on the original film cans and boxes, a 1939 inventory in the collection presumably made by Malvina Hoffman (Box 36, f.3), and from an inventory made by Getty Research Library staff who viewed most of the films.
Also in this series are damaged acetate negatives (most from Series V.), 1,587 acetate negatives (originally identified as nitrate), and 5 microfilm reels of the negatives originally identified as nitrate. An inventory to the negatives is in the repository's Research file.
Original film reels, 1925-1939, undated
60 films (55 titles). Most films presumably by Hoffman. A few seem to have been made by or with Sam Grimson, 2 by Thomas Cravens and several by J.J. Cunningham. Fifteen films were made by Hoffman to document dancing around the world for her commission from the Chicago Field Museum. Some films document artists and the art-making process. Some films portray Hoffman, family, and friends.
Film masters (positives and negatives, listed below the nitrate film reels) and use copies (described in Series VI. Videotapes) were made from some of these film reels. Films are unavailable for use until reformatted.
