I have this film on Super-8mm, but with one or two reels missing, as mentioned above. Of course, the parts missing are important to the plot (primarily the face to face meeting with Leo and his dead ancestor). I think the production values are adequate for this kind of film, in the context of the time it was produced. My Blackhawk print is a little dark and contrasty, but it is enjoyable. I have watched it many times, but I would love to have a DVD copy of this film. (Perhaps I can make my own if none appears.) Perhaps someone out there would be so kind as to let me know whom to write to, in pursuit of this.
Fortunately, I was able to show the picture at its proper speed, which helps give it weight and more lifelike movement. The portions of the film I do have look very good, so I am sure that someone out there could restore this and put it out on DVD.
