Existing Campus Sleuth print/tapes
31 January 2005 | by brmaz-1See all my reviews

Copies of Campus Sleuth survive, and are in collectors' hands in truncated form, as well as the UCLA archives; I've not seen THAT copy. The mystery is whether an uncut copy still exists, containing the hayride musical l number featuring Mildred Jorman--Little Miss Cornshucks, It has been cut out of what existing prints I've seen.

This is the only footage known to exist of this colorful and talented blues/vaudeville performer of the 40s and 50s, and a subject I've been writing about and researching. Should a complete copy be available anywhere, I'm very interested in learning about that. this is not a masterpiece for the ages, but anybody's claim, but it contains a valuable performance that needs to survive-and also to be seen..
