Sitting Pretty (1933)

Does anyone know if a decent 35mm copy of this delicious pre-code musical (starring Ginger Rogers) survives anywhere or are we doomed to accept the lousy 16mm dupes that circulate on the grey market?

I've been meaning to make the same inquiry myself. Every copy I've ever found is of the same wretched condition, with big chunks of the "Have You Ever Seen A Dream Walking?" number ( one of the more clever and well done Busby Berkeley imitations) missing. Anybody?

It played at Cinecon last year, and I believe it was 35mm. If it wasn't, it certainly looked good for 16mm.

It was indeed 35mm.
