Even though it's a duplicate, it may be the only surviving copy of
this film, which is clearly of significant historic value.
It wouldn't cost all that much to just get it telecined at standard
def, as a one-light transfer -- on a machine like a Rank or Spirit
(best choice) or even a Bosch FDL-60 or Quadra.
But the Elmo... I have nightmares!
