This dissertation presents algorithms associated with the development of a robust automatic motion restoration system, in particular, in the areas of flicker correction and stain removal. Motion pictures are records of images on the historic, artistic, and cultural developments of the human society of the 20th century. Just like a historical relic, it is a heritage to all mankind. Unfortunately, due to the aging of film material and other factors, many of these historically significant items are now in a fragile state and need to be "rescued" immediately, and restoration is the very first step in this rescue operation.
