The Universal Film Manufacturing Company incorporated on April 30, 1912 and would go on to become the oldest continuously operating film producer and distributor in the United States. Throughout its history, Universal has translated economic necessity into a uniquely American challenge to the distinctions between prestigious and popular entertainment. The Archive is pleased to celebrate Universal Pictures’ hundred-year legacy.
'Apollo 13' (1995): Nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Apollo 13 dramatically recounts the events that befell America’s third manned mission to the moon in 1971 when a capsule malfunction in orbit threatened the lives of the three astronauts on board. Compellingly, Ron Howard centers on the everyday heroism of the NASA team on the ground whose professionalism and ingenuity saved the mission and the space program.
