Note: I think this one’s got to be the most epic upload on the site to this day. The original source of this print is a 16mm that a TV station worker found while cleaning up the station’s archive room back in the early 2000s, which he then sent to have it digitally trasferred. This copy specifically was sent to me by a very kind and generous guy over in Australia who managed to get a copy of the digital transfer, this upload wouldn’t have been possible without him, many, many thanks, Mr. R. You can read more about how this film was recovered and why it has never been released on DVD or VHS on his personal blog, here.
