    Finally got to see this rarity last night. Great quality print especially considering how long it has been hidden from public view. I really appreciate the opportunity to see it Jon. Thanks a lot. Now, hopefully, The Spoilers (1930) may make its way into circulation while I’m still alive to see it.

    Great to finally see a copy of this rare Cooper film and also a pre-Kong Fay Wray as a brunette no less. Thanks for putting this one up. Also helps that the print is about as perfect as one might expect after 90 years.
