I thought the shot of Shelley Winters was in "Centre" -- but maybe
someone else could confirm that.

There are some out takes that Stan had as a part of his archival
collection that was stored for some years at the Museum of Modern Art.
The agent in charge of that archive had separated the film materials
from the paper materials, for selling purposes, and the paper part of
the collection was sold to the University of Colorado in 2004. That
means that the film materials (a fairly large collection of prints, as
well as out takes) should still be somewhere at MoMA. I have been
trying for about two years to get them to even acknowledge the
existence of this material, without success.
