I don't do all requests but will keep this in mind. You should maybe have contacted me privately via email.

I don't actually keep my DVD archives with me here anymore although these might be online somewhere. (And I can dig them up if I ever visit my storage.)

I did have a Fred Calvert workprint which was on Youtube as "Ruining The Thief".

John Smith's full Little Shop Workprint never leaked, he just released various clips. A different workprint leaked, minus the ending.

I did put the KA reels out as a DVD at some point.

I've been emailed another request for the Princess and the Cobbler timecode VHS version (there is also a 4x3 DVD version), and the "Keramidas cut" (a peculiar cut-down version of the Later Workprint done for Calvert early on, which I've never released in full ... and I don't intend to, as it would then be analyzed as a major version of the movie ....)

Roughly, Thief-related: I have the KA Reels, Action Dupe, WB Selection, the '92 VHS Workprint, snippets of the Calvert Workprint, and a bunch of audio files. Either in MKV or MOV containers as I received them.
Pretty much anything Garrett shared with me I still have on my Archive HD. I have a account, so I could probably share items there if need be.

Looking for Crash (1996) Workprint

Hi everyone,
I'm new here and not sure if I could post it here but anyway, I'm looking for a copy of the Crash workprint which was floating around in trading circles in the 1990's and to my understanding was the only way to see the film at the time as there were issues around the time of the film's release. I've spoken to at least 2 people who claimed to have a copy but both do not have copies and one of the people informed me about what to expect:

*It's said to run 10 minutes longer.
*Has no music and contains reel changes

This is one of many lost workprints that I'm after. Apt Pupil, Armageddon, Disturbing Behaviour, The Faculty are others.

If anyone has any info or knows where to find them I can be reached at

Thank you all,

I'm not familiar with the workprints for any of these films.

I know that Crash has been released as a censored and uncensored version, and Armageddon as a "Director's Cut." A longer "Disturbing Behaviour" circulates, and there's a longer TV cut and a DVD with deleted scenes etc.
