What are your most recent film purchases?

For me it's the Super-8 feature (6 x 400' reels) of the 1952 film "Breaking The Sound Barrier." Being a aviation fan,I'm looking forward to the arrival of this one with great interest.

Ah, David Lean ... Bet that is a good one then. Got a 16mm print of A Passage to India and it's a nice film

Just won another one today. "Kid N Hollywood", another early Shirley Temple short from Blackhawk (with sound).

That's a good film Douglas, I have it in another format; the photography is very impressive, especially for that time. The cousin of Olivia de Havilland ; Geoffrey de Havilland is mentioned in this film, as he died about this time trying to break the sound barrier. You won't be disappointed with this film.

Hi Robert,
I'm looking forward to watching it.I'm a big aviation & history buff so this film should be right up my alley.

Just in , "Django , Prepare a Coffin" with Terence Hill, and "Das Boot" the Wolfgang Peterson film on the U-Boat crew during WW2, which
when shown on BBC in the 80's as a mini series had our workforce glued.

"Django, Prepare A Coffin" fron Bert at Super8 Warehouse is as you'd expect superb, the 3x400 of "Das Boot", from ebay, has a bit of fade, easily
corrected by Gel, but had a smell of vinegar, so a wind through Cresclene and open boxes should sort it, otherwise quite happy.

Not a purchase, but a gift from my pal. A 200' black and white/silent/subtitled reel of "Sky Riders" (1976) from Ken Films. After watching and enjoying the reel, I watched the feature by another means for the very first time last night.

Hi Vidar, Kevin Mcarthy version, which I prefer, a lot more menacing, very unnerving at times too, a really great classic sci-fi horror movie.

Oh YES Andrew, the full early print version of Star wars, and if the screen shots are anything to go by, a beauty of a print.

I simply love the fact that our hobby goes from strength to strength by having like minded similarly enthusiastic and passionate collectors on board.

No one telling us all the D¥D is only £10 on Amazon for the same thing!!!!!

What a wonderful world we all have so far here. I'm in heaven!
