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.
'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' (2005): Judd Apatow’s debut feature helped launch the big screen career of Steve Carell and inaugurated a new wave of sweetly innocent gross-out comedies about man-boys forced to grow-up fast. Carell plays the titular virgin, Andy, whose co-workers discover his secret and scheme to help him with his “problem.” Their adolescent antics are balanced by Andy’s honestly portrayed, if dewy-eyed, romance with Catherine Keener’s single mom.
