My name is Willard S. Jansen. On 3 July 1947 I completed motion picture class at the Army Pictorial Center as a PFC. Then, in June 1963 I was transferred there from DASA, Albuquerque, NM, and assigned to Information Film Branch (BIG PICTURE) to replace Lt. Col. John Fenner. While there, worked with Hunter Low, Ben Stillson, Paul Wiley, Larry Souville and other good people whose names escape me at the moment. We cranked out many BIG PICTURES. Was transferred to the Pentagon in June 1965 where I was mainly responsible for the BIG PICTURE series. Along with numerous others, I have many fond memories of the Army Pictorial Center.

The building that houses the Museaum of Moving imiges was a building that was run by the Army Pictorial Center that processed motion pictures, and it certainly seems that so many people never new that it was the fastest processing plant in the U.S if not the world. And it was the most advanced in the world at that time. Sample, did anyone know that a machine ran for 6 months without stopping! Joe Scrabonia (Faffhead)

THE MOST MODERN PROCESSING PLANT IN THE WORLD WAS AT APC. OR THe Mueseum of moving images building...Hollywood personell would visit to find out how we processed so fast..Why one machine ran for 6 months, around the clock,dudring the Veitnam conflict..Does anyone know that foreign nations visited that building to see how we accomplished prosessing speed. I personlly gave details to that request. The head of the maintenance of the fastest equipment in the world at that time was Mr. Gus Matzko..(Chief) Mr. L Glennon was Service Dept Chief. My position there was a Motion picture mechanic technician(leader) for Mr G Matzco..I can keep going with this information but I need more room.. Thank you..Joseph Scrabonia Bldg.#13

The building that houses the Museum of Moving images at present was the building that contained the fastest, most modern processing motion film labratory in this country, if not the world. Visiting personel from forign nations were schooled on the processing knowledge and modern ideas.. of all the machinery improvements by Army Pictorial center. I do believe APC personell where not aware that a machine operated without stopping for 6 months during the Vietnam war., unbelivable

My niece found this website yesterday and directed me to it. It brought back a lot of memories of the many years that my Dad, Anthony Guttilla, worked at APC. I don't recall what year he began working there, but I know it was after World War II, because he was a soldier until the end of the War. He worked there until former President Nixon closed it down in 1971. Dad took me to work with him a few times, and, although he is listed as having worked in the Still Picture Branch (which I believe is correct), I remember watching him edit film with a device which I believe was called a movieola. I also remember marveling at the huge sound stage and all the equipment and being allowed to hold one of the Oscars for a moment (and being surprised at how heavy it was). I also remember photos of my Dad with various movie stars who had come to APC to be in the films. When my brother was a teenager, he was given a small, non-speaking part in one of the training films (after obtaining the proper credentials, of course). After APC closed in 1971, we moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, where my Dad became Chief of the Still Photo Lab at the Army Foreign Science Technology Center. He passed away in 2000, but he always spoke fondly of his memories of APC and the people he worked with there.

In July 1954 I was assigned to Army Recruiting Headquarters, 39 Whitehall St. with duty at the same facility which housed the Pictorial Center. I don't know if it was being used at the time as I never did see any signs of it. However, there was a wooded scene set up on stage which I am pretty sure was used as background for a training film. We had a small Recruiting Publicity section in the building which also housed an Army Reserve units. I was just there for the summer and that October was transferred to Bangor, Maine (my home town). As an aside, we had some pretty well known draftees at 39 Whitehall, who were used in our public relations office. One was Hilly Elkins who later became some sort of icon in show business. I think he was Mae West' manager at that time. I recall a very friendly diner right across the street from the studio.

I'm looking for an episode from "The Big Picture" that featured the Army Language School (or possibly it sucessor, the Defense Langauge Institute). My brother and I saw it as kids, and after I graduated from college with a major in German, my brother remembered this episode and suggested I join the Army and pick up another language. Two langauges and 20 years later, I completed a very fulfilling career, retiring as a Master Sergeant. I'd love to see the film that started the whole thing for me. If anybody knows the whereabouts of that episode, please contact me at carl5068@yahoo.com.
