ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Academy Award-winner Michael Douglas is donating his personal collection of more than three dozen film prints to Rochester's George Eastman Museum.

Officials at the photography museum located on the estate of Kodak's founder say that the Douglas collection of 35mm and 16mm prints, 37 in all, includes more than 30 that he starred in or produced.

Museum director Bruce Barnes says Douglas was inspired to make the donation after visiting Rochester last May to receive the George Eastman Award for his contributions to the film industry.

Douglas won an Oscar for best picture for producing 1975's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and an Academy Award for best actor 1987's Wall Street. Those two films are among the donated prints. Others include The China Syndrome, Romancing the Stone and Traffic.
