    A late night bump in the hope that Theo can find someone who has obtained a copy in the last three years.

    Wasn't it a 3-D film? If so the only people having a copy would be 'Sabocat' in LA...Happy hunting.

    Sabocat? I asked the Beverley Sisters, who star in the film, and whichever one wrote back told me it was directed by Lewis Gilbert! According to Screenonline, he actually produced it. Perhaps he knows more!

    Never heard of 'Sabocat'...The only company that deals in lost 3-D films!

    Have now found out it was a 3-D film starring Max Bygraves...Lewis Gilbert was co Producer (not Director) it was Directed by Byron Gill. Eros Pictures were the Distributors...Dora Bryan also featured.



    I expect the BFI have a copy but trying to get anything from them is a waste of time! My original suggestion of Sabucat in LA still holds...if any one has it they do. I remember the poster of the time, with Max juggling balls into the audience. I'm interested to know how 'Brief Encounter' remembers the film?

    Yes 'Sabucat'...just Google 'Sabucat Films'

    I'm suprised that a 'film forum' hasn't heard of one of the biggest film archives in the world...specialising in lost 3-D films and movie trailers.

    Film Man - I don't remember the film. I'm simply a great fan of the Beverley Sisters!

    Nice to know they have such a dedicated fan Brief Encounter. Hope the film turns up from some source. What happened to the Eros library I wonder?

    Could well be...the original 'Eros' packed up in 1962...British Lion distributed their films at the time.

    Well that is amazing...well done for following it up 'Brief Encounter'. All we have left is the BFI or a private collector...maybe Max Bygraves (anyone know him)?
