I just spotted a site online offering LET'S GO FOR BROKE on a 2 disc Blu-Ray set with extras and subs and everything like that. Pardon me if I don't believe it as it's my understanding there are less than 6 copies of the film in existence and several of the folks who have one don't want it released and I've agreed not to release MY copy. If you're interested in Christa's story and would love to see the movie, I urge you to use caution if you see it offered for sale, for download or for streaming.
As of right now, to the best of my knowledge, LET'S GO FOR BROKE is simply NOT out there in its entirety, legally or even illegally!

I ran across another photo of Alex Stevens, the stuntman who was verified by Chitra to have been the original director of LET'S GO FOR BROKE's Haiti scenes. He was replaced by Producer Stuart Duncan with Ron Walsh when the production resumed in Florida after a holiday break.

Okay, now THIS is fascinating! Best size and resolution I could get without spending a fortune to access the VARIETY archives but this is a trade ad touting the 1975-76 releases from Joseph Brenner and Associates and one of them is LADY J, the still lost, supposedly re-edited version of Christa Helm's LET'S GO FOR BROKE! According to our previous information, while Brenner had the project for a couple of years, it was never released, even after announced intentions to do so in 1977 in order to exploit her murder! But, as seen here, they clearly were planning on releasing it in 1975!
