So in my big lot of film was the 3x400 Walton feature of L&Hs "Way Out West", and I originally suspected that this was the full feature. However, when totalling the length, which I concluded was around 1050'-ish, it only makes for around 50 minutes of film, compared to the 64 minute running time of the feature.

So I am wondering; how much and what is missing?

Well who’s on first? Yeah. Go ahead and tell me. Who. The guy on first. Who. The guy playin’ first base. Who. The guy on first. Who is on first! What are you askin’ me for? I’m askin’ you!

Hey Christian,

I have the complete feature from Blackhawk now for sale. I can trade this title so you can see what is missing. Let me know -- send me a PM if you are interested.

Christian from memory I think about 5-8 minutes are missing. I do remember some scenes at the start in the salloon are missing like sharon lynn dancing and when james finlayson pressing keys on the till. Sorry for not being more accurate but its been years since I last saw this. Most walton films (if not all) have been edited but this is not a bad print and fits nicely on a 1200ft reel.
