I can't get this powerpoint 2003 file to open in 2007 or 2010

This file was created in Powerpoint 2003 SP3 and for the life of me can't open it in either 2007 or 2010. In 2007 it just hangs with the progress bar in the bottom right at about 1/4 the way through. I've let it sit there for 1/2 hour and same. No errors or anything. So I took it home with me and tried opening it in Powerpoint 2010 Beta and it sits at 23% and will not open. I'll attach a screen shot.
I'm baffled. I've searched all over the net and for the life of me can't find a solution. Anyone else had a similar problem?

Thanks a lot,
 Stuck on opening
