Pacific Film Archive is making preparations to preserve NOTES ON THE
PORT OF ST. FRANCIS by Frank Stauffacher (U.S., 1951; 22 minutes,
b&w, sound). Unfortunately, all preprint elements (reversal
originals, dupe negs, tracks) are thought to be lost by those who
might know best.
I have contacted a few of you off-list, but in order to leave no
stone left unturned, I am asking if any of you out there knows the
whereabouts of any existing materials for this film, including print
sources. We are currently resorting to comparing composite prints
that we have been able to find to determine what would make the best
Thus far we have located the following prints:
2 from personal collections
1 from PFA collection
1 from BFI
SF State supposedly has a print in their library--has anyone seen this print?
UCLA may have a print in the Creative Film Society Collection
(waiting for verification from them)
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!
