I'm afraid I'm not offering mine, but I was very suprised to hear some time ago of a fellow collector that has a Super 8 print of the film that's NOT the Powell release. I think it seemed to be from a US source and was possibly also edited a little, but it was clearly from a different master - e.g. I believe the US release has different opening titles. So you could look out for that one too!
If anyone has any info on the non-Powell release, I'd be very interested to know more.

Hello, I might have what you are looking for. Just bought a large number of 8mm film and I have that title. It is on 2x800 ft reels, super 8 w/ magnetic strip, but it does not appear to be in color. Let me know if you would like to hear more.

Seem to remember hiring this from the Rank film library when they had a super 8 section. I'll have a check in my archive to see if that's where I did rent it. About 40 years ago! WOW
