Tom always re-cut films before striking new prints -- and sometimes
borrowed shots from one film to use in another. I remember seeing
trims from a film we made together, RICKY & ROCKY, end up in a recut
version of AMERICA'S IN REAL TROUBLE. I believe HE had similar
things done to it. Tom always referred to it as "creative conforming."

What sort of damage do the A&B rolls have? I may be able to help it
it's physical/shrinkage/torn perfs etc.

Say hi to Tom!
