You never can tell what unexpected surprises may appear suddenly. I have bought three Gordon Scott Tarzans,dubbed in Spanish and "beet red", because I like them very much. But I can say that ,from the expensive ones, I would like THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS, THE ABYSS and JURASSIC PARK, but only at a reasonable price!
From the others, I would like ASSIGNMENT REDHEAD ,a cheap 1956 adventure, a "guilty pleasure" (although I haven't seen it !!!) because I like Carole Matthews ,whom I had seen in many tv episodes from the late fifties/early sixties, who stars along with Richard Denning. Also I would very much like to find the 13 minute extract, that was cut out from UTOPIA, the American version of ATOLL K. It was issued by L.A. Films, I ordered and paid for it and then they closed down and I never receive it.
And about a hundred others !!!!!

Panayotis your the same as me there, i would pay a good price if it was a reasonable price, i think paying a grand for a film is simply madness no matter what.

I take your point Tom, but remember these films weren't cheap to start with. I have two on Panayotis list, "Vampire Killers" and "Jurassic", the first was near the £300.00 mark, the second was £350.00, purchased between '91 & '96 that would be getting on for £1000.00 now.
When collectors are paying £200.00 for what amounts to 600' of sound film on a very strange acetate, and kidding themselves they are "keeping the hobby alive" £1000.00 doesn't seem that dear.

Hello HUGH, is the Vampire Killers just a spoof of the hammer films ?, this does come around a few times, I know its a derann feature, Polanski was a good director, but he has a
bit of a chequered past to say the least, quite like the horror stuff from the past not this new girlie screaming rubbish, that I could write in ten minutes.

Hi Paul, no the film is a very enjoyable atmospheric film, has some funny moments, but beautiful cinematography by
Douglas Slocombe and a very memorable film score from Krzytof Komeda, Sharon Tate has never looked lovelier, Alfie Bass
steals every scene he's in and Terry Downes is brilliant as the hunchback helper. The print is a stunner in 'scope and the snow
scenes look good. The magazine "Little Shoppe of Horrors" did a full issue on the film a couple of years ago, still available.
The Count is played by Ferdy Mayne, a credible contender to Christopher Lee. As soon as it was printed, I had mine, would
never part with it, it is a great wintertime film, especially getting near Christmas. I will screen it and take some pics, now I'll
have a bash at putting up some on here. The pics below are from "Black Sunday", aka "Mask of Satan" Mario Bava's equally
atmospheric '60s horror starring the lovely Barbara Steele. Maybe Vidar can put them in the gallery, my fault.

Some great screen shots Hugh, ah yes Barbara Steele, was she in an Edgar Alan Poe film with Vincent Price, Black Sunday don't know that one Hugh, looks like a old Universal
horror film, I love those old creaky b/w films.

Yes its a favourite of mine from Mario Bava, a classic of Italian horror and banned in Britain from its release in 1960, it didn't
get shown here until '67, Derann released a beautiful print in std 8 of its British title "Revenge of the Vampire" feature, its
proper title is "Il Masquero Del Demonio", or "Mask of Satan", it kicked off a career for Babs in horror that she still has today.
Anyway Paul, I'll get some shots of "Vampire Killers" posted for you,

I remember hiring that Barbara Steele film as pictured, one of the reels was so out of sync it was many frames out of sync, why would any-one put that on their library shelves and still charge the same price, and when I said about it, he said 'well it's foreign and dubbed', I said 'so even the doors banging shut are done in a different language then', he just shrugged his shoulders and put it back on the shelf.

Robert, I've seen your screenshots and there is nothing wrong with them, they are exemplary, you just didn't see the rest that that I took
that were awful, many of them too. Steve makes the point of films recorded out of sync, wonder why people didn't just put them back in the post for rerecording, on the older Eumigs it didn't present a problem as the loop beneath the gate could be adjusted plus or minus if there wasn't too much drift, but on some projectors it would be a problem, so a return would have been the answer, alas those
very prints are now turning up on ebay no doubt.

Right now, I'd sure like to find the 400' digests of:
"Westworld" (1973)
"Sky Riders" (1976)
"The Seven-Ups" (1973)
...at a reasonable price that is!

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit". An incredibly difficult Derann Disney feature film to find on Super 8mm, still in top condition!

"Melody" starring Mark Lester and Tracey Hyde in 16 mm. One of my favorite films and I try to watch it every couple of years.
