It comes from Terry Teachout, who reports that Ace in the Hole aka The Big Carnival is airing this Thursday at 2:30 AM EST, Wednesday 11:30 PM PST. This film is unavailable on DVD, unavailable on VHS. In short, there are RARE OPPORTUNITIES to see it! You know this if you are a film geek — even in a small way.
I have not seen it. I have been wanting to see it for years. I have spent much time trying to track this down unsuccessfully.
I do not have cable. While I have a few feelers out to pals, is there any kind soul out there who might be able to tape this for me? I will reimburse you with nifty books!
[UPDATE: Good on multiple fronts. Thank you very much, those of you who wrote in! You’re too kind!]
