I spent 15 years looking around the world for the lost left side of GOG. When I finally found a print in Atlanta, I learned it had literally been sitting about 20 miles from me all along at a film storage depot.

We just premiered our restoration to a large and receptive audience at the TCM Festival.

You never know where lost films will turn up!
