I saw a pristine nitrate print of this film at the Eastman House in Rochester
NY in 1984. It was a semi-private projection for a freshman film class, and
after the class they told us that the print would no longer be projected, but
stored in the archives. It must still be there somewhere. This was the only
time I ever saw the film, but it stands out in my mind as the most beautiful
black & white I have ever seen.
