I would love to see this.
21 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

However, time has taken it from us. All prints of this film are currently believed to be lost. The reason I want to see this is because it is the only entry in the series that has the involvement of it's creator. I can only hope that a print still exists.
