I actually agree with your bro Tom, modern films now take an age to reel out & finish, once it was one pop song, now we have room for two. It is ridiculous, the end credits we speak of consist of about 10 feet of film, enough for a cast reprise and A Hammer Film or some
such, in the case of the releases Marketing butchered, the majority were 50s films, a simple The End was all that they required, Marketings response of course, because Bill Davison of Movie Maker fame had been in touch with them, was to send a
Paramount logo to purchasers of their product, I went one better and gave them a lecture on how Leone's masterpiece had been ruined
by them, I suggested a reel of the massacre of the McBain family and the title of the movie at the end, as it was in "Once Upon A Time",
not a peep from them, why should they, I'd already bought the bloody thing! Derann issued a film, the credits were so long, they asked that anyone wanting it, it would be sold on a separate
reel. one extreme to the other, but Derann did offer the alternative as opposed to others that didn't. Summing up, those little excerpts
from Castle and the like, plus the Columbia digests, were prime examples of how it should be done, a beginning, middle and end.
Tom, before I sign off, your bro is right again, those mute titles on the three part releases were wasted film, again, what the hell were
these editors thinking, I use the term in its loosest sense for those imposters.
