What is the longest period of time you have had a reel one, two or three of a feature go missing and eventually found. My latest Holmes experience was seeking reel one of House on Haunted Hill. Seems last haloween when I prepared HOHH for a show, I spliced in previews, soundie, and cartoon, but in haste forgot to relabel the old leader that read "trailers reel 4". I was even searching the dog house and I don't even have a dog! [Big Grin] I found it after two months. I was inspecting "trailer reel 4" by looking at the side of the reel and notice the the film stocks showed many films longer than a two minutes preview. Eureka!

Funny, I was just thinking of that yesterday!

I've been in search of "2010" reel 3 for quite awhile, and while the feature is great watching reels 1,2 and 4, and still rather have the whole feature.
