I strongly suspect Swank has no way of providing it
I can PERSONALLY claim credit for the fact that 16mm prints of this were
ever made as I was working at Films inc at the time and this was the first
contact with Miramax. It was only going to be for Pelle the Conqueror but I
literally BEGGED for THIN BLUE LINE and they agreed to get it and make a
16mm. Given the time frame I suspect that SWANK does not even know where
this negative is and thus has no way of making a 16mm. I don't think
you really have any options here. In fact it is possible that Miramax does
not even own the film anymore. It would be nearly impossible to track down
that negative AND figure the rights
