Hi Kim,

I can also give you Chuck's email if that helps, off list.

It was originally done for the Oscars, I believe, so I think the Academy
Film Archive also has one.  I included it in a show of films cited on the
Library of Congress's Film Registry, and had Chuck in person.  I have to
check my records to see if I got what we screened from him or from MOMA or
the Academy.

A key point, though, oddly, is that if a film gets listed on the LoC Film
Registry, that does NOT mean that the LoC has a copy or does anything to
preserve it.  That list seems to be nothing more than a list, citing films
worthy of preservation, etc.  It might lead to
preservation/restoration/etc.  But Chuck and Janie Geiser, who were both
at that show, said that (at least as of that time), the LoC had not even
contacted them after the announcement of the list to ask for prints.
