Charles “Buckey” Grimm is an independent film researcher with 35 years of experience examining various facets of the motion picture industry, specializing in the silent era. He is especially concerned with documenting the lives and careers of cinematographers active during the silent era. His collection entails films he has collected over time, mostly "orphaned" works found online. Grimm shepherds their acquisition by various film archives to ensure their preservation and accessibility in the long-run.
