I would think you lads are on the right lines, pardon the pun, remember on the 8mm forum, Laksmi, he swore down his Elmo did not scratch his films, until he used Filmguard, which showed up lovely blue scratches on his prints, the explanation was that the liquid had removed the residual dirt, to which Laksmi replied, "I want the dirt back!" Usually these gouges appear as horrible green marks, but
no doubt through refraction by the liquid showed them up as blue.

I think I was wrong about the yellow, it's green as Mr. Browning says.

I miss Laksmi, wish he found his way back and joined us too. Anyone know what happened? I know he was hospitalised about a year and a half ago or something.

He certainly was a character Vidar, last heard of when selling his print of Peter Pan, then fell off the radar.

It seems very odd just disappearing the way he did, hope he is still with us, and not departed.

I had trailer reel which needed to be re-recorded according to the seller, anyway when it arrived I was surprised to find it was a kempski trailer reel, so the colour would be good,
and it was to be fair, but the sound was just terrible. So I found the trailers on you tube and proceeded to try and record them new, on checking to stripe it was something
else, it looked like someone had dribbled liquid paint in snake trail all along the stripe edge, a sort of blue grey in colour. I have never seen anything like this ever, I doubt
it was done by Derann or EVT for that matter.

It might have been done by the renegades that did the Bruce Lee effort.

HA HA , Certainly like chop soo hee, no lee's just wong wong wong's. It beggars belief that someone could not have looked like i did and know there would be no chance of
putting a decent soundtrack down on that mess, no way.

My worst print, would appear to be an unauthorised trailer reel by Derann (Errol Flynn Trailers), the Robin Hood trailer is almost blank . I had the same problem with a Hopalong Cassidy feature that Derann Brought out, instead of a replacement, I got a refund, and the film was withdrawn, making me think that all prints were the same, so how come it wasn't noticed before. I decided to keep the trailer reel, as the others on it were not bad. The leader says Canterbury films, and I doubt they gave permission for Derann to make copies.

The whole of a Hopslong Cassidy feature was the same. Derann should have been questioned about that trailer reel. I only have one Canterbury Trailer reel and that is good quality. I kept it because it was better than nothing.

In 1982 when ET first hit the cinema screen I saw that a shop called Quality products in Romford was selling the trailer, I had to have it so one Saturday morning I got the train to Romford to buy it, couldn't wait for the post, when I got home I quickly run it through my Eumig 936 and was disappointed with the quality it was terrible and to make matters worse it was only a teaser trailer so you didn't see anything of et.
