Yes. I'm drawing a blank on his name at the moment. Anyway, he
has a large film can full of film scraps. He showed them to me
in Paris when we were both there to appear on the French TV
program about the film. I only had a brief look at it, but it
appeared to be more of the same. Just a guess, but I think if
all his scraps were spliced together he might have a couple of
feet of film. Ahh, yes, it comes to me --- John Purdy. He never
has returned my calls, so I have not been able to discuss
anything with him.

Two differences primarily. This was not Super XX but a much
slower film and therefore would be less subject to fogging.
Also since it was in a metal cartridge I would assume that the
metal would block some background radiation. The film did show
significant fogging, but the edge markings were clear and images
would have shown if there were any. The portion of the film Ray
returned to Mike was completely blank.
