Castle Films changed into Universal-8 Films in the early 70's. They finally responded to collectors demands by releasing films in these longer 400' digest versions. All are Eastman Color with reddish color (unless noted).

  • MUHAMMAD ALI VS LEON SPINKS - Universal-8 400' digest print. On February 15, 1978 Ali and Spinks went head-to-head for the undisputed heavyweight championship in Las Vegas.  Spinks, the 10-1 underdog, defeated Ali, making him the newest heavyweight champion. With only seven professional bouts on his résumé, Spinks became the only the second man to defeat Ali in a title match. Spinks was later stripped of his heavyweight title because he refused to fight Ken Norton, the No. 1 contender. Mint Eastman Color Estar print 400' in the OB - $69
