I am posting this blog in hopes that someone can help me to find this elusive gem. When I was taking courses at San Francisco State in the late 80s, one of the instructors, who used to work at KQED channel 9 in San Francisco had a copy of a short film called "Julia Child Shows You How to Edit Video Tape" that was made for NET, the network that preceded PBS.
It was hysterically funny short black and white video in which Julia takes out a huge meat cleaver and literally chops a reel of 2" video tape in two. Then, she cuts it in another spots and splices the two ends together with mashed potatoes. Great, funny stuff!!
I cannot even remember the instructor's name who showed this, and I'm sure he's long retired or even dead by now. This was 20 years ago and he seemed to be fairly old then.
If anyone has any information on how to get a copy of this elusive film, I would be forever grateful. I haven't seen it on YouTube, so it's not there.
