From the Sun Times -
[Doak] Ewing, of Naperville [Milwaukee] and president of the Naperville-based Rare Sports Films Inc., offered [Don] Larsen the chance to view the only existing TV broadcast of the [perfect] game [that Larsen threw in the '56 Series], beginning at the top of the second with one out.
The footage, a kinescope broadcast filmed for the U.S. Armed Forces and intended to be destroyed a week after viewing, hadn’t been seen in 50 years.
Ewing, 58, calls the footage a “freak” find he purchased through an Oregon film collector, who had bought the reels at a flea market in 1990.
Now, on the 50th anniversary of the milestone, Ewing has a mission. He hopes to make the footage available for private and public screenings for a yet undetermined fee.
However, his dream is to broadcast the game on network or cable TV.
OK, jokes aside, it’s amazing that no other film of this game exists. No one, 50 years ago, thought to keep of copy of the footage? Wow.
