A "Gold" question

#1 by Barry Attwood , Fri Mar 22, 2024 12:16 pm

I was watching the re-mastered Blu-Ray of this 1974 action movie starring Roger Moore & Susanah York, and I was wondering if anyone had the F/L print Iver Film Services advertised in the late 1970's, I've had the well edited Scope 2x400' many times, but in all my years as a dealer, I've never seen a F/L print, is it like the Marketing Films F/L "True Grit" which never seems to have materialised although widely advertised.

The only F/L copy I ever saw of Gold was owned by Ralph Gill and was part of the PM FILMS Super 8mm Rental library in Beaconsfield.

Cant say I've ever seen the full feature on 8 but I do remember the catalogue it was advertised in.
We ourselves ordered and paid for the forth coming 3 x 400ft version of Cross of Iron which sadly, also never materialised. We recieved a full refund because the company announced it was closing. I've also tried finding the 2 x 400ft version of The Sweeney movie, I never did find one but I do believe there is a copy or two that were sold.

Yes Tom "The Sweeney" definitly exsists, as I've had a coupkle of copies myself, but that was one of the last titles released by Iver, and I believe only a few prints surfaced (another title with a few prints was "Murder on the Orient Express" 4x400'), but "Gold" was advertised as a F/L feature for many years, so it's a strange one indeed!

Perhaps it wasn't a popular title as a feature maybe?
I recall seeing it in the cinema when it came out but to be honest, I cant remembering anything about it now, the idea of 2 x 400 in scope would definatly be a good length for this movies but as you say, it is odd that it never seems to come up for sale as a feature or even any reviews of it.
