Sad to say print #20021 is no longer in great shape.

Lots of damage:

Many splices -- obviously missing footage in some cases, where only 3 or 4 frames of a shot are remaining, or obvious jumps in soundtrack. Based on where the original cues are, there's at least 2 seconds of footage missing at tails of reels, and probably a similar story at the heads, too.

I inspected and then projected Reels 1 and 7 to test. Reel 1 has a vertical scratch (base) running through the center throughout the opening title sequence. Many splices -- some through the frame -- and various instances of emulsion scratches throughout the remainder of the reel.

Reel 7 is "tore up from the floor up." The credits were mangled. I'm guessing a platter tossed it.

Lots of hiss in the soundtrack due to how beaten up this print is.

Inspected a few of the other reels, but did not project. The pattern of abuse is consistent.
