NEWSFLASH- Original Prints Of Betty Boop Cartoons

The secret to Lionsgate restoring Betty Boop (other than the convincing part)? 9.5 mm home movie prints!

Here we find some transfers of some original-titled Betty Boop cartoons, pre-dating the UM&M negative cutting. If the original titles on the head of all the Bettys in the UCLA archive deteroiated, then for Jerry Beck this would be PURE GOLD. Nobody's seen the real original titles to these, including the most common on all PD Betty sets. Oh, execpt for those who saw it in the movies in the 1930's. They probably 99% didn't pay attention to the credits, so to keep it fresh in your minds
