The article discusses efforts by the EYE Film Institute Netherlands to restore the 1923 film "The Spanish Dancer" by combining elements from various incomplete prints. It is suggested that the most difficult aspect of the restoration was reconstituting the film's original editing sequence, which the author and colleagues achieved through access to the original continuity script by Paramount Pictures. Details related to foreign export negatives of the film are presented. Other topics include the use of a digital workflow for the restoration process and the creation of a new color exhibition print.
