It is a great film in 'scope, not a big seller, I still have my print, one of those rare films that take you on an adventure, like
"Journey to the Centre of the Earth", "The Lost World" etc, a really nice film from Fox.

As an additional, I was successful in a purchase of a much wanted title thanks to Vidar, who was the lynchpin in
obtaining Guilio Questi's very violent western "Django Kill", with Tomas Milian. Without Vidar, I would have lost out,
my thanks to a great lad.

Hi Paul, Hannie Caulder is a joint British Euro western, a good stab at the genre, Raquel is gorgeous, the rest of the cast excel
it falls between two stools, a comedy and violence, but Robert Culp is superb as the bounty hunter/teacher to the female lead,
if the film has faults, I have yet to find 'em, a great evenings entertainment, I've nailed the Walton standard & "scope 4x400s
plus the 16mm print.

Hi Paul, the versions by Walton are both good colour, I know Mr Lail on the other forum has a 'scope print for sale.
The film on the whole, is a romp, the cast are enjoying themselves, but some great action, even Sir Christopher Lee,
what more can you ask? Borgnine, Elam and Martin are in there too, I'd have to check my prints for stock, but colour is great.

Hannie Caulder is one of the most underrated Westerns going. It wasn't greatly received upon it's release press probably because its a British made western and at the time i think the Americans didn't think anyone else could make them, (apart from the Italians). I covered this and other westerns in a recent film for the collector magazine, i often think looking on the forums it clearly shows how many people in the hobby dont subscribe to the magazine.
We have this on 4 x 400 footer for many years and i am still on the look out for a good scope feature, but only if its on the Agfa stock which Walton used for many of there films thankfully.

I only have the full screen version, but still a good watch. I was at a meeting on Friday with our club and got a few cheapos. Haven't checked them yet, but there was a couple of Batman's (400') which I paid some 8 GBP for both and The Last Command (Derann 400') which I got for 3.50. Also some 16mm cartoons, but can't remember titles. Will hopefully check them soon. Also got a big bag which I am trading with a friend here. Some not complete, sadly, so will see what's usable when I get through them. Now I want to go buy a bag of power, as I am so tired that I can't start my film watching :-(

I will be the first to admit Tom, that I don't subscribe to any anymore.
I had the first few editions of Film Collector sent but I found I wasn't AS drawn to the magazine as I always was with F.F.T.C.

I don't have acres of spare room for magazines so I keep tightly hold of all of my movie maker mags and of course the F.F.T.C. ones as well as other Derann catalogues and used sales lists etc.

What other magazines do you still collect Tom?

I hope you soon begin to get some energy back Vidar. Quite besides film watching, no one here wants to hear of you feeling lethargic most of the time. We all here wish you fighting fit and well very very soon as with all of our members here!

I picked up a mint copy of Iver's 2 x 400ft DIAMOND MERCENARIES at the Farnworth Film Fair last weekend. It cost the princely sum of £10 and the colours on both reels are perfect. I'm not always as lucky as this!

One of my best buy's recently was from Blackpool, it was a 400" "The lady vanishes" starring Cybill Shepherd and Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe). Not seen this before as it was in scope so for a tenner gave it a punt. When I got home and gave it a clean, straight away I knew it wasn't alone and it "had friends" (City Slickers 2), as something was spliced to the front of it, also the colours looked great.

The jawdropper was when I viewed the film for the first time as the friend happened to be the scope trailer for Star Wars Return of the Jedi, perfect colours and mint then the actual film which is now the best 400" I have, the colours are perfect and the print is very sharp and mint condition too. I was one very happy collector, Del.

I have the 2 Walton 200 footers of Hannie Caulder still sealed in their shrinkwraping.
I may get round to watching them sometime.
I wonder if the colour is okay ?

John that is a great bargain you got there.
Andy, i do only collect the film magazine these days, i will be gearing up soon with my Qs and As for the next edition so hopefully will be in touch soon.
Have to say the old FFTC magazine was a winner, especially in the 80s, i do miss those days

Me too Tom, me too!
I guess it was a whole lot easier then putting out a magazine that often contained several new feature releases within that same month.

No shortage of reviews back then, that's for sure!

Hannie Caulder bought new almost as soon as released by Walton and the scope version too. Good fun to watch. The only problem with Walton was they messed with the credits.

Just got Hopperty Goes To Town & Gulliver's Travels

EDIT Hannie Caulder £89 new.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

I'm concerned at our mate Vidar being listless and tired, he over taxes himself and I hope he isn't lifting heavy gear about.
Vidar, if you are on here, please rest yourself, these screens are tiring for your eyes. Get a bit of rest amigo, you need it,
just get that little noggin laid in the pillow, and a good nights bo bo's, you just look after yourself, health is first, all else secondary.

I'm surprised at you Andrew, not supporting a mag devoted to our hobby. As you know Andrew, it still has Keith Wilton and co in his centre spot in the mag, apart from some great contributions from fellow collectors like Tom, Barry and a lot of other folk, even yours truly. I liked FFTC too, but it was never the same after Dave Worrall, but to be fair, that was in Derann's Heyday, Derek said the mag had to stand on its own feet, I don't believe that, the paper used said it all. Anyway, you are doing yourself a real disservice, the mag is
nicely laid out, some lovely posters in colour and contributions from all your buddies on here and more. Phil does a sterling job, the guy
is not in the best of health, but finds time to put a really fine mag together, written by collectors, for collectors. In this day and age, surely this publication deserves support from members.

Yes you are probably right Hugh. I should subscribe really. As said, from the first few I read, there wasn't too much of interest to me if I'm honest, but no doubt some editions would be right up my street depending on topics covered. I like mags that cover the technical aspect of our machinery and hobby in general rather than just lots of chat of who directed what film and so on.
Similarly, I am far more of a Super 8mm fan than I would ever be of the whole industry in general. Unlike people like David here, I have no connections, experience or affinity to 35mm cinema or for that matter 9.5mm, so that is where Derann's magazine promoting their own products solely on Super 8mm, suited someone like me down to the ground.

I did purchase the first 3 when they came out as I used to subscribe to Phil's mailing list, but since he just sends the updated list to us now online, I simply have never bothered subscribing since.

I would be interested in seeing the index from some of the later editions to see if there are articles that would particularly interest me since the first three.

I thought it was going much higher than it did Andrew, although this time I was determined not to go over the top, I put in my max bid, but no one else bid ??.
It was on my list of wants, but I was prepared to wait for the right price one to come along, this time I got lucky. Most of his films are first generation prints,
because of some the rare one's he had. Also what is more important, he has a fumeo 9119 xenon projector ???, so they not damaged prints, he some serious
collector, god knows what else he has in those vaults. I'll bet good money ( if I got any left !!!!) that he's got Robocop, there somewhere. I guess I will have a
few features for sale soon, watch this space.
