Patton Oswalt - The Academy Archives

"Now, if this was an old silent comedy, I would spill these [film canisters] everywhere and they would clatter to the ground… but, I have respect for cinema." Atta' boy, Patton! So, this is what happens when you let Patton Oswalt loose in The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences film archives. As part of a new series of "Academy Originals" videos on YouTube, this latest "Let's Go to the Movies" video provides a very lively and fun discussion on the 1961 B&W film noir classic Blast of Silence, set in New York City. It's also just fun to see Patton roam the halls of the archives and chat about his love for movies and the New Beverly.

Posted on The Academy's YouTube, found via Facebook. "Follow along as comedian, actor and movie fanatic Patton Oswalt is offered the opportunity to screen any film from the Academy Film Archive, then watches and analyzes with comedian Karen Kilgariff the noir classic Blast of Silence." Written and directed by Allen Baron, the 1961 film stars Allen Baron, Molly McCarthy and Larry Tucker, and never actually received any nominations or awards. In all honesty, I would love to see Patton pick out and discuss a classic film every week, although I'm sure they have plenty of other guests lined up next. So much fun. Want to see more?
