Hello from Greenville, SC USA
I like your CTVA site so much that I was checking on a very rare early 50s TV show and discovered that
I have three of these shows on 16mm and can provide exact titles.
I have 16mm masters of these three "TOP SECRET" - from 1954
THE LOST CHILD - 11:39
THE TRIGGER - 11:36
MESSAGE FROM NOWHERE - 11:36
These original prints have vinegar syndrome, but I was able to save them and make a good broadcast master
onto DV CAm with a broadcast 3-CCD Camera.
