The color in the Vimeo embed below is a bit off, toward a faded, pinkish hue. The video is available at UC Berkely and UC San Diego, but I’m not sure of the condition of those reels. It’s also listed at the UCLA Film and Television archive in faded condition, although this listing doesn’t show in Melvyl or WorldCat.
