Tape vt010, reels 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52 -- Outtakes (35mm)Table of Contents

This tape contains 35mm footage including original film not used in "One Fourth of Humanity" and a good deal of outtakes, film pieces cut out during editing. Some of the outtakes may be as short as a few seconds. There is substantial duplication in this material as outtakes from a scene may be spread through the tape. Most of the 35mm footage appears to be film produced by the Chinese and acquired by Snow for use in his documentary. Also included is the film of the interment of Edgar Snow’s ashes at Beijing University.
