The film is owned by Cowboy pictures and they should have all formats
( though Kit Parker basically raped the Janus library and stole a large
number of prints they should have at least one 16mm left and we gave them
a good 35mm copy) Contact Heath at

Cowboy SHOULD have all the JANUS titles that Kit Parker had ( though as
mentioned above many are sadly "missing"). SWANK got the RKO films in 16mm
but the majority of other titles carried by Kit Parker are mostly out of
distribution ( they pop up for sale on eBay, I even bought one for Kino that
we owned rights to but needed a 16mm)
