Oh, look!! It must be the rat infested storage room Universal Studios has stored the original negative of "Saga of a Star World" in since 1979!! Is that a Bat's nest on the ceiling? A river of "Cherry Flavored 7-Up" flowing underneath?
It doesn't take a lot of effort to cause a movie to cease to exist. All you have to do is store it improperly. In inappropriate temperatures. In film canisters not sealed properly. In environments suffering from excessive moisture. Not doing periodic maintenance on the original negative within reasonable time frames.
Is this how the 3 hour pilot version of "Saga of a Star World" has been stored by Universal Studios since 1979? Because it sure as hell looked that way based upon how it appeared in the DVD set below in 2003.
How does "Saga of a Star World" look now in 2013? Does the original negative even exist anymore, or did Universal Studios allow it to rot away into nothingness? All they had to do was look the other way while it happened and do nothing on purpose. That is very, very easy to envision. After all, we're talking about Universal Studios here.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
