Film Critic Archive Debuts at Columbia Library
Prolific film critic Judith Crist’s papers are the newest additions to Columbia University Libraries/Information Services’ Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
Crist’s works encompass 135 linear feet of material, all written during her career as a journalist, critic, exhibitor, and teacher. Crist taught journalism at Columbia for more than 50 years. Her son Steven donated the papers to the library.
Crist wrote for a wide range of publications, from TV Guide Magazine to Gourmet. She joined the TODAY show as its first regular movie critic in 1963 and was the founding film critic of New York Magazine.
The Columbia University Libraries/Information Services are composed of 22 libraries that house more than 12 million volumes, 160,000-plus current journals and serials, and collections of electronic resources, manuscripts, rare books, microforms, maps, and graphic and audiovisual materials.
“One of the joys of criticism is in wanting to share discovered pleasure,” Crist once said. “You can’t kill the trash, but at least you can give the good a push and pass it on.”
