Steven Thompson dredged up several color photos from the first movie based on Will Eisner’s character, The Spirit. It was acquired by ABC Television (before it was purchased by Walt Disney) and intended as a pilot for a weekly series. The entire story can be found in my biography, Will Eisner: A Spirited Life. You can often find bootleg copies of the film, which has never officially been released on DVD, on eBay.
