Just to save our members their hard earned lolly (money ) there are ads from Bd-cine on ebay, great people to buy from, but the postage
is a bit expensive through ebay, deal direct.

Tom, you do realise your holiday money is spent! Please don't mention Vidar and myself in the carry on.......We are merely
folk who said "No Tom, you can't spend that on a film", and ,"Oh Tom, how naughty", well that's our story and we're stickin' to it.
Sneaky bastards to the end. Nothing to do with us Mrs Photiou. Just to cover our tracks, "Oh Tom, how could you", sounds good to me boss. I've won Union cases on less.

There were/are great releases out there Tom, but our lot were more at ease with the big Hollywood releases, some of which turned up
in foreign versions, but anyone that liked the "off the cuff" releases, like myself, the Euro stuff was there, although, back when we joined the so called "common market", I was charged import duties then, a rip off even now, better out, than in, well there are many
releases out there just waiting Tom.

20160518_205237 [123028].jpg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)I bought this film off an auction site and it was obvious that it had been previously projected through a sewing machine and then a bar-be-que. When I opened the box, pieces of the film fell out ( at least I was sent the damaged parts) Now you would expect me to be gutted that I was sent such a film but in fact I have spent some time cutting out the burnt frames and the broken sprockets and have now got the film to some sort of repair that will run through the projector. I am quietly chuffed! Isn't it a shame that its 'history' cannot be traced. It would be so interesting to know who had the film before. Were they a collector or just someone who showed films to their children and family. All I can add to the timeline of the history of this film is that I shall continue with its magic and show its hypnotic shadows to my Children, grandchildren family and friends until I bore the crap out of them!

It is very sad, that deception has taken hold on film sales, I like to think that on any past sales, I didn't sell anyone duff film, I
wouldn't do that, I fully respect collectors, any faults are mentioned, I haven't had returns or adverse comments or mails, why can't
ebay sellers be as honest.

I picked up a nice Marketing 400ft print of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'. Colour is very nice Agfa. There was minor curling/warping(unusual for polyester prints?) but it played fine.

It's one I've always wanted whenever I've seen it appear for sale, but somehow it's eluded my grasp on each and every occasion Jonathan.

You've done well there my friend, and it has great colour too! Always a huge bonus this with Marketing prints nowadays.

Well done Jonathan here!

I admire your tenacity and enthusiasm there , earlier David btw
The things we will do to renovate our films!
I doubt there is any other medium we could be bothered putting this kind of devotion into.

I've had this title many times over the years Jonathan but always felt the picture was a little soft, is yours quite sharp?

Jonathan, mine is the same. Cupping Hugh called it. I played it once when I got it. After that it would not play anymore. I used WD40 and wound it onto another spool, cupping inwards. Left itfor 14 days and now it is usable again. Common problem?

Hi Del. My print didn't seem soft. I did, however, play it in a semi darkened room during the afternoon as I couldn't wait to see it!
Vidar, maybe it is a common problem with Marketing prints on that very thin polyester stock. I have a Star Trek which is similar. I don't know.

I used to have the 400', definition was sharp, but it looked as though it was turning, and that was over 20 years ago, the feature
still looks okay.

Who released this as a feature though Hugh? Was it Marketing or the German labs through Steve in the USA perhaps?

I'd love to have this one as a full feature!

I got it around '94/5 Andrew from Ian, I think it was from Germany, I'll check the leaders though, the "Last Crusade" came from Tua
Films around 2001.

I picked up a fun Derann 200fter of 'Thank you Very Much' which is basically the last 10 minutes of 'Scrooge'.
