Hell Spit Flexion, in 35mm:

Lots of claims in this lengthy listing. For anyone
who seeks to buy this print, it looks like an unfaded
35mm print, but the idea of it being Brakhage's
personal screening copy is very suspicious. Then
again, I have no idea who this seller is, maybe it's a
good friend of Stan's and maybe it's true. Just
doesn't sound right to me.

For several of the 35mm films, Stan had workprints, as
part of the process of putting a 35mm film together in
negative, something he rarely did.

And keep in mind that you can buy a new 35mm print of
this film directly from Marilyn probably for cheaper.
If this thing is a workprint, it may have splices
throughout it.

p.s. I love the photo of the lab bag and crumpled up
newspaper. Own a piece of history!!
