More Than One Thing


Washington University Libraries’ Film & Media Archive is pleased to present this online exhibit to celebrate the preservation of More Than One Thing, a documentary directed by filmmaker Steve Carver. Created in 1968 and 1969 while Carver was a graduate student at Washington University, More Than One Thing explores the daily life of Billy Towns, a young man who lived in the Pruitt-Igoe housing development in St. Louis. Via video clips, audio oral history interviews with Billy and his brother Tommie Towns, never-before-seen still photographs, and, of course, More Than One Thing itself, we hope to help keep this film, and its thoughtful, sensitive take on Pruitt-Igoe alive for future generations. 

Preservation of More Than One Thing was made possible with the support of a Basic Preservation Grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF).
