Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Actress Ann Savage's Collection Acquired by Harry Ransom Center: "AUSTIN, Texas—The collection of actress Ann Savage (1921-2008) has been acquired by the Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin.

The collection includes Savage's annotated film scripts, scrapbooks, photo collections, clippings, business contracts, feature film prints, home movies and 35mm slides. Many of the items have not been published or publicly displayed.

The collection spans Savage's career, from her initial contact with her first agent, Frank Orsatti, to her work with filmmaker Guy Maddin on 'My Winnipeg' (2008). Savage, who died Dec. 25, is often recognized for her performance in the film noir classic 'Detour' (1945)."
