Don't know why this didn't post before, but I'll try again:

not me boss (though I would be interested in who *does* have a still from this and why.)

I guess it's too much to hope that this survives.

By heck, it wasn;t you, it was Maurice Terenzio, but here's a still from it:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=706&p=3771&hilit=the+spy+tom+howard#p3771

I don't know it definitely to exist, but it's not impossible that it does, the Paramount Talkies shorts have a good survival rate because they were sold to UM & M/NTA in the 50's for television distribution.

So why are you interested in it?

It's the only other film with a role of any size for Jack Cameron, who was so good as the clown in APPLAUSE. In fact, THE SPY was one of a lengthy program of shorts on the bill at the NY Criterion when APPLAUSE played there in October-November 1929.

Oddly enough Chris, UCLA has soundtrack negative on THE SPY, but no picture material in the Paramount Collection, but it may indeed exist on 16mm out there in the old NTA package.

A friend of mine has a 16mm print of THE SPY. I viewed it at his house back in April 1997.
