most don't exist at all. Remember well over 90% of films of that period are
LOST forever. Some of them do exist BUT ONLY IN ARCHIVES not on video. If
your student REALLY needs to see them he can contact the Library of Congress
Motion Picture division which should have one or two ( Half Breed for sure )
but he would have to make an appointment to go to DC to view them there
