A couple of years ago I bought a 16mm print on eBay. I had a C&C print but the seller showed some frames of the original main title, so I took a gamble on it being a pre-reissue version. Not only was it the complete 74 minute version (struck in 1938), but it came in a shipping case with CLIFF REID's name and address on the label! Reid was the producer of the picture for RKO. I know of only one other uncut 16mm print of the film extant - Merian Cooper's print on deposit at Brigham Young University.
