The NMAAHC holds multiple film copies of THE BRONZE BUCKAROO. The copy employed for the Pioneers project comes from the Collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, Gift of Randall Nieman. This 16mm black-and-white print was scanned to frame-discrete Ultra High Definition DPX files using a ScanStation 5K at Video and Film Solutions. A high-definition video derivative was created and ”dust busted,” prior to encoding of the Blu-Ray and DVD masters. The Nieman Collection 16mm print was created circa 1954, and is believed to be a reduction print from a 35mm element. Its soundtrack is variable density mono.
