The 70mm print was very faded, and composed from several different prints. The colors ranged from very red and faded, to yellow, pink, and in some cases close to natural.

A thick and white scratch "graced" the image for more than 30 minutes.

True to the 70mm splendour and roadshow era, "Doctor Zhivago" has an intermission.

Mr. Mark Lyndon (London) brought a Russian hat for Sebastian as a birthday gift.
The previos chief projectionist, now retired, Mr. Hans Bramman, Chief Engineer Alan Lyman (Nordisk Film Biografer, Denmark) and Chief Projectionist Jan Niebuhr  (Nordisk Film Biografer, Denmark)
