Videofolk--

I have been offered a copy of the 1960 Southwestern Bell TV production of
Gilbert & Sullivan's "Mikado" which was unique in having Groucho Marx play
the role of Ko-Ko. I would like to add this to my personal collection, but I
wonder if it can possibly be a legal copy and not a bootleg. My only reliable
information source, World Cat, does not show a video copy in existence. IMDB
lists it in Groucho's output, but does not say if it was ever available on
video. Do any of you wise folk have a source that would tell me whether or
not it was ever legally available? Bad as I want it, I don't want to support
any pirates.

Thanks in advance.
