As you know from my earlier posts, the original 35mm negative of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK has been gone since the late 1950s. After a long delay, we have just received the first 4K test scan of an archival 35mm element that I recently found in the UK. I have to tell you, I am absolutely blown away with the quality of this 69 year old print. I've handled many 35mm copies of this film over the past forty years and have never seen the opening sepia footage this clean! Here's a frame from the raw 4K scan: The next step is to acquire a 4K scan of the complete feature and I have given the archive a green light to proceed based on this outstanding quality. Thanks to this recent discovery, you are going to see JACK AND THE BEANSTALK in a restored version that will knock you out!
