Can someone help ?

I bought the film Darker than Amber with Rod Taylor at Blackpool but it is incomplete. I have reels 1 and 2 but the final reel is missing - its a great film - so I was a little cheesed off when viewing tonight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The best part of the film. Be forewarned the fight scene at the end from what I heard was either heavily edited or cut out all together. You have to make sure it's the original theatrical release.

Thanks Larry,

I hope I can find the last reel as I was really enjoying the film.

There is only a tiny chance of finding that last reel. I would ask this Italian guy Marco to print it from a BluRay (or dvd) source. The results are great and the costs very reasonable. That way you can also be sure you have the theatrical cut.

It's been many years since I last emailed him, but I know that earlier this year people mentioned on the 16mm forum that they received footage from him. I sent you a PM with the last email address I used. Let me know how you get on!
