WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO PANDORA'S EXPERIMENTIA? IS THE FILM LOST TO HISTORY??

according to wes craven's websight he wrote this about elm street.

Question: : I heard a rumor that the idea for "Nightmare on Elm Street" might have come from a student movie involving Elm Street in my hometown of Potsdam, New York. True?

Wes Craven:: No, I'm afraid not. You know, when I was teaching, I bought a camera and we shot a film up there called "The Searchers", I think we called it. It was a bunch of students, noticed I had a camera and I didn't know what I was doing, thought I was just fooling around. They asked me to help them start a film club which we did, and then we made a 45-minute-long little action picture. Very crude, we didn't know what we were doing, really. We showed it at the school and all the surrounding schools. We made our budget back about four or five times over. And that was when I got the bug for making movies. At the end of that year I quit my job and went down to New York and started trying to get into the film business.

SO HAVE ALL LOCAL WRITERS AND HISTORIANS GOT THE FACTS WRONG? CRAVEN HAS BEEN QUOTED IN THE PAST THAT THIS HOUSE INSPIRED HIM AND HAS TALKED ABOUT IT OVER THE YEARS.
