Here is an excerpt - "Still, Mr. Harris decided to take the next step toward a full reconstruction. During a trip to Los Angeles in 1998, he approached Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., which now owns the United Artists library. MGM agreed to help, and would consider financing a true restoration of the film. The studio was even willing to pay for a backhoe to root through a landfill in Pennsylvania, where it was believed that some of the lost soundtrack had been taken from the Paterson warehouse. But nobody could figure out where to look in the miles of trash."
