Hi

The only online historical source of book office stat that I know of is
http://www.worldwideboxoffice.com/ and they don't list your movie.

You'd have to check the December 1963 hardcopy issue of Variety, I'm
afraid.

control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in

as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
