I still love the smell of film in the morning

David, the word I would use is simply "ridiculous". If I was a millionaire collector I wouldn't pay it on principle.

I have a 35mm poly print. How much can it be worth? ( I payed £10 )

But that is the SE (97 version), isn't it. This 16mm is probably without the horrid CGI. I also have the three 97 SE, but paid more than you :-) I think a little over 100 GBP each for me

Looks gorgeous though, but that price is scary

Lets be honest, that price will never be realised, these people really have an over rated opinion of their films, there isn't
a film on God's good Earth I'd pay half that amount for, and that includes "Wicker Man!!"

Yes Vidar! I own the SE prints. But I cannot see any info about wich release this is in the add, so I guess it can also be the SE, as it´s printed on polyester.

Hugh! I agree. This is a hobby to most of us, but remeber the crazy yuppy days in the 80´s. People with to much money invested in stamps, paintings, coins, comic books etc. The prices raised to weird levels, until it all crashed.
I never pay big money for any film. Even the most wanted. I will keep my collectioning as a great hobby

When did they start printing on polyester? I think it's the 1983 edition myself, but could of course be wrong. If I sold Star Wars, I would add Special Edition in the title, but of course, not all do that. Still overpriced ;-)

As Tom says, even if we all won the euro millions, I doubt anyone would pay that for a film.
It is just a ridiculous amount of money for one film, no matter what title it is!

If I had millions, would :-) What else to use money on? Only need 200 GBP a month for food, I'd paid off the house, helped my friends, still too much left. I'd buy all the films I needed and hire a projectionist :-) LOL ... Dreams, never realized of course

nice thought though Vidar, keep playing. You've got to be in it to win it..as they say!

I wish we could get away with only £200 a month for food in our house btw!
