The Filmore was a doomed product from the beginning (and no, this isn't 20-20 hindsight speaking).

It's a nice track-for-street offering with low spoke count wheels and high sparkle. Unfortunately, that market is generally looking for a durable product at a reasonable price. Fuji, Bianchi, KHS all make these: various levels of acceptable cromo, traditional spoked wheels, generally unremarkable components, relatively low pricetag.

The Lemond was priced like a proper track bike but not actually suitable for track racing.
