getting films under sad circumstances.

#1 by Paul Barker , Wed Jan 27, 2016 10:07 am

i have just last weekend bought a small collection of films from a dear friend of mine who has decided to give up collecting. the 16mm titles i am keeping myself but the 8mm disney films are not my interest. they are all disney features in mint condition in there original boxes many still with the celophane on. there are six in all. titles are beauty and the beast. aladin. the aristocats. who framed roger rabbit. cinderella. and dumbo. his stipulation that he just wanted them to go to people who would appreciate them. so at a cost of £80 per feature i am giving my close collector friends the opportunity first to get any of these titles. as i said the 16mm i am keeping myself. got some great titles here including king kong 1933. and its a wonderful life. his eumig 8mm 938 projector i have already sold. a sad day really when a collector gives up. but health reasons in this case.

Hi! It´s always sad when someone gives up this great hobby. It´s a good thing that he still cares for the films and want them to go to new caring homes.
I am a great Disney fan since chilhood and would love to buy some of these great titles. If they are still available I would like to buy Cinderella, Dumbo and The Aristocats.

Thanks for this great offer.

PS! No disney shorts/cartoons?

Yes, really bad circumstances for someone to have to give up a wonderful selection of films Tom and Paul.

When Dave lands his mint print of W.F.R.R., we can almost post a full deck of these Derann Disney's here in screenshots!

How brilliant would that be!!!

Would you believe it, you wait all morning for a number 53 bus, then three come at once!

Hi Paul,
Sad to hear about your friend. I've probably completely missed the boat but would consider any Disney left (could be shipped to UK address). Mainly I collect ads and trailers in the unlikely event there were any in the collection for sale

Hope you get it Alessandro, but if not, I will always post screenshots to whet the appetite for our searches.

They are out there, just be quick and don't expect perfect on this well run title now. Many have been run to death unfortunately!

Price paid should match accordingly. Always, always insist on screenshots from a recent screening before EVER parting with hard earned money for any expensive print nowadays!

Better still, watch it live, then pay accordingly. That's the best method and the cheapest in the long run for the RIGHT prints.

Many a decent private collecting seller has provided this service for me in fabulous surroundings over a coffee.
It's great to watch before you buy whenever possible.

Bit of a waste of time you mentioning it really Paul if nobody on here was allowed to buy any of them

Dave. i didnt say nobody on here was allowed to buy. if you read my post properly you will see i said i was offering to my close collector friends first. which is what i have done.and as stated they are absolutely delighted. i was just doing what others on here have done. ie telling what i have purchased etc. what i am really most supprised about is just how many on here were eager to part with £80 plus to someone that they have never met and dont even know.

That sounded a bit strange. Isn't there a first time to buy from someone, ie giving a "stranger" your money? I tend to trust people until I experience that I can't. Of course you can sell to whomever you want, but that statement was in my eyes a bit strange. We are all strangers before we meet or am I wrong?

nothing strange or odd about it at all. perhaps i like to be more aware who i part cash with. i have bought some good items on ebay knowing if there is a problem i am covered. private sales as we all know are a greater risk. especially if you dont know the seller. i understand collectors disapointment not getting a film . but we have all been there. have been there myself many times.

Although not too disappointed on hearing this, perhaps it would have been better not to have mentioned it in the first place, knowing that non of your close collector friends are on this forum. I doubt if any collector would be able to resist such title's at those price's, it appears to mislead those on this forum into thinking they could have purchase them, not intentional I'm sure. I think we all forgot that old saying, " if it looks too good to be true" , you know the rest.

Ask your two friends,who you sold all these superb films to, Paul....to join us all here.

We'd all love to share in their astonishing good fortune and hopefully they will post us all a few screenshots from those illusive missing titles from our existing Disney collections we have already here.

As a group of devout collectors,we all dearly love a screenshot or two here!

No, what a shame Tom, that Paul seemingly,has not followed up this request of mine.

It would have been a real treat for quite a few of us here to see WFRR and others in glorious LPP/ Agfa colourful stock, wonderful unmarked original boxes, maybe even with its original cellophane on?
And better still, knowing they were offered at a gift of a price to their new owners at only £80 a feature!
Yes, it's a real shame Tom, there was no follow up to this.

I carn't help thinking that quite a lot of film collections become available because of sad circumstance's, and that the sale of someone past over has moved through the hands
of dealers onto one of us. Ask Ian or Barry and they will probably tell you how many phone call's they've taken over the years to come and look over a prized collection of
there loved one's, and for the most part Ian and Barry will ensure they get good home's to be enjoyed by us film collector's. Yes Andrew we all love a bargain, but if I want to see
a good Disney upload on here, i'll speak to you first.
