Weird... there's actually an 8x10 *color* still of this shot up for auction on Minimum bid is $8.50; s&h:2.50. No bids thus far; auction closes in 7 days. May be able to order from seller's site <>, which has quite a few Hollywood stills, etc. for sale, plus jpegs for some. There may even be a jpeg of this still on the site as he's got a couple hundred small scans, 20k or so in size. He also sells on EBAY, YAHOO auctions.
