I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but I do associate it with the old Turkey Day marathons that Mystery Science Theatre used to run, and I still enjoy MST3K episodes.
So I was very excited to read about this man who basically bought a pig-inna-poke box(es) of old public domain films from a former distributer, and discovered among the reels the working copy (16mm print) of Manos (or, going by its working title, Finggrs of Fate)
You can read about it here at this thread on Something Awful
which includes amazing photographs of how clean the original copy looks, unlike the copy of a copy of a 35mm print used for the show (‘Every frame looks like someone’s last known photograph!’ and ‘Joel, this is gonna be a snuff film, isn’t it :(’ )
Anyway, as a Mistie going all the way back to the original run of the show when it aired locally, and I lived in Minneapolis one year (and I still have all my Info Club bulletins!), I think it’s pretty neat! Enjoy.
