You may like to peruse the screen captures I've uploaded onto my Flickr page (among a few other random things. :)) :)  It's been a while since I've seen this, so I don't remember the Mr. Pan character offhand; I'm thinking he's probably toward the latter end of the pilot though.

Ah yes, thank you. They're very nice.

I agree with your above theory, I'm sure a better print must exist somehow, but it's doubtful that it will be released in any other than showing up on Ebay or the like.

And after rewatching it, I believe Mr. Pan is the guy standing watch on the cave from 44:54 - 44:58, when he is tackled and not seen again (nor do I believe he is seen prior). It's too hard to tell because of the quality, but if I had to venture a guess, that is Mr. Pan.

It would be nice if Fox would release this through Amazon's create-a-space program, that is if the episode survives on anything (there's the remote possibility that aside from any work prints and off-air kinescope copies, the original master was destroyed in the 60's or 70's.

I would LOVE to see an official DVD release if possible. And yes- a on-demand DVD release would work well for this one.

Or on-demand Blu-Ray could always work.  Since it's a pilot the show could almost be considered a short-film.

I'm fairly certain that the original high quality masters probably exists somewhere, if not in a Fox archive, in a private collector's archive. A better version might show up on E-Bay at some point, you never know. Hope springs eternal.

Hi, Newbie here.  I couldn't seem to reply directly to some of the posts, but thanks so much I've been search for a good day for "The Mystery of the Chinese Junk" 1967. I didn't think to check for abbreviated titles. Good call. Even a poor print is better than no print IMHO.  ;D
