For those interested, there's a 35mm film reel of the Material Girl and Dress You Up music videos on ebay.

I've never seen 35mm film sources for any of her music videos. I did a quick and dirty comparison and here's what I came up with.

Obviously there will probably be a ton more detail...considering the awful masters that have been used for Celebration and IC.

What's interesting is the obvious cropping of the top and bottom. For some reason, I figured there'd be a hard matte on the music videos.

Has there ever been any restoration work done on music videos from the 80's and 90's? Were they usually edited on film or on video?
