I checked OLCL WorldCat for this. The only tape I saw there is the
13-minute version (1975). The James Earl Jones version was broadcast on
KNBC television in Los Angeles in 1974. It's kind of strange because it
was taped off air, but here were no holding libraries. I would estimate
your chances of acquiring this one as zero. I checked Video Source Book
and Bowker and didn't see anything, including the 13-minute version.
