old buffett video

Has anyone seen the video referenced in article in above link? I have never heard of it.
GDLV: And then we made another movie with my brother-in-law for PBS Miami, following Buffett on his 52-foot Cheoy Lee. We went down to the Dry Tortugas and shot it. It was the prettiest movie in the world and PBS in Miami probably still has the damn thing.
MC: What was the subject?
GDLV: Buffett. This was probably '76, a couple of years after “Tarpon.” Christian and Jimmy had become good friends. It was all very cheap. We didn't have the crew from France, we just had two cameras and I brought my skiff down there, so we had a skiff and we had another boat that we stayed on and we just shot Jimmy in the Cheoy Lee and of course everybody was smoking dope. I don't think that made the editing.
MC: Were you fishing?
GDLV: Not really. It was more about the music, and him strumming the guitar in the cabin, something like that. They actually aired the show in Miami in the late '70s two or three times.

Never heard of it but it looks like someone has posted about it previously. Very nice find. I've never been fishing for tarpon but I'd love to see the movie and hear the soundtrack. What little bit I heard in the trailer sounds great. Even though I'm not a tarpon fisherman, the film itself sounds like it would be well worth viewing. I'm glad it was rescued from obscurity.

So cool! I have not seen a reference to Richard Brautigan in a very long time. One of my favorite "hippie poets."
Fun to know that he and Jimmy knew each other.

I would love to see video of Key West in the 'old days'. There are movies that were filmed there (example: that "sponge diver" movie from the 50's), and books with pictures, but does anybody know if there are videos/movies of just Key West ??????

Just to clarify my post here.
The film "tarpon" has been (re)available for some time. Is a great film, has some great Key West footage and is worth seeing even if you don't enjoy chasing tarpon.
What I was refering to was the article's reference of a seperate film that Buffett did for PBS Miami in 1976 that was him on his 52 foot sail boat Cheoy Lee playing tunes on his guitar in the Dry tortugas.
The article claimed it had some great footage of Jimmy and the area, not to mention his old boat.
Has anyone seen reference to this or have a copy?
