    New York Times Listing  Universal Pictures: Restorations and Rediscoveries, 1928 to 1937 (Friday through June 15) The current climate of Hollywood studios’ staking their bets on comic-book movies would probably have puzzled Carl Laemmle Jr., who became head of production at Universal when he was 21 and had a reputation for taking chances. The Museum of Modern Art is bringing back many of the most significant movies from this underscreened period; some of the titles have been out of circulation since then. The lineup includes work by John Ford (“Air Mail,” Sunday and May 24) and Frank Borzage (“Little Man, What Now?,” also on Sunday and May 24) as well as several films each from James Whale and John M. Stahl. The program opens on Friday with “King of Jazz” (1930), part of a brief boom of Technicolor musicals at the dawn of the sound era. After a herculean restoration effort, it will show in its full form in what is being billed as the first time since the 1930s. 11 West 53rd Street, 212-708-9400, moma.org. (Kenigsberg)

    It's been 45 years since the release of "Jaws" so we thought we'd share some pieces from the NBCUniversal Archives & Collections inventory.
