  1. Have you seen any of the chapters? I’ve only seen photo stills. Bet it was fun seeing that at the cinema back in the day. Love the poster showing the shade of red costume!

  2. Wonderful! As a kid, I remember my father loading up his 8mm film projector with an abbreviated silent reel version of one of the chapters. The reels were sold commercially in the 1960s. Great memories!
