Mine is still The Adventures of Robin Hood, but also my Highlander is quite good. Death on the Nile,

If my Raiders of the Lost Ark 400' wasn't warped, it would certainly be up there for colour

A very tough one to answer Vidar, there are so many great prints out there from Derann, Red Fox, Lone Wolf and the German prints.
The nicest colour prints from Walton, were the first runs of "Witchfinder General", "One Million Years B.C", "Vampire Circus" &
"Twins of Evil", they were the ones with natural flesh tones and perfect contrast, I have had prints later that suffered by too much contrast and lost detail in dark scenes plus a slight reddish tone to flesh. The Derann Hammer releases were very good, as were their "Robocop" 1 & 2. The German "Jurassic Park" and "Indiana Jones" films were excellent too, as were the Red Fox prints.
I think the best would have to be Lone Wolf's releases of "El Cid" & " Fall of the Roman Empire", the trailers released for both
these epics are truly stunning.

Yes Hugh it seems to be the case that the Lone Wolf releases are the best quality prints ever done on Super 8mm.
I too have the trailers and they are very good indeed.
