According to IMDb, there's one single reel left, and it's preserved. So, if that's true, try copying it! It's better to risk losing it to be able to show people then have one reel that will never be shown! Maybe in the future, they'll have some device to immediately convert film reels to a CD! Oh well, if it ever transfers to DVD, I'll be the first one to buy it. It's the only best picture nominee to not have a certain full version available. Wikipedia says only part of reels are available, but IMDb says a full reel is preserved. So, which one is it? This is the most sought after film ever, so come on! Have an official announcement on if it still exists or not! So, I'll leave you guys with one question: If that reel exists, how much does it cost?
