Film synopsis courtesy of Allan. Thank you.

This copy comes from the wonderful A/V Geeks Archive where they showed it in one of their live streams from a 16mm print that was donated to them and that they scanned themselves exclusively for this show, thanks to my friend Kurt & Steve for letting me know about this so I could grab it. These shorts are incredibly rare and only exist in film prints so if it wasn’t for very kind people like the people at A/V Geeks these films would be still considered lost. A/V Geeks doesn’t  make any money from these scans nor any of their videos on their Youtube channel but they are always providing films of all kinds for everyone to enjoy, just on their Youtube channel they’ve uploaded 6,000 films already, and ‘m pretty sure they don’t have any plans of stopping anytime soon, truly an astonishing effort. Please consider supporting their work if you can, you can do so via Patreon, additionally, you can check out their website here and their Youtube channel here. Thank you, and thanks again A/V Geeks for this gem!

    Adam Holender also did great photography on Puzzle of a Downfall Child and Midnight Cowboy, among many films

    I LOVE these lost Oscar-nominated shorts
