Missy and others--The old Gunsmoke editing exercise <is> available (it took
a couple of years to finally track it down). Below is the catalogue
listing for it from our library. Presumably it can be gotten from Crest
National Videotape and Film Labs in Hollywood (be patient: it took nearly a
year from time of initial order before it showed up here). Good luck.
