Closed Circuit Telecasts: Later shown in 35MM format?
Noticed a microfilm newspaper ad for the 1970 closed circuit in theater telecast of Ali vs. Joe Forman. Weeks later in ads for “The Savage is Loose” some theaters were also showing a filmed version of the same Ali vs. Forman boxing match.
So was it common for some closed circuit telecats to be struck on to 35MM film for more showings? Or maybe this was a separate film made during the fight itself unrelated to the telecast ?
Thank You Much.
