Absolutely brilliant photos there Hugh'; my regret is that my father never saw it on the big screen, I saw it twice, my father only saw it on a 21 inch TV. The impact is lost on the small screen. My personal opinion is that in 1964 , films of this quality were rare. I remember one film I saw about this time called 'The Siege of the Saxons', had a number of well known actors, but even at this age, of 9 or 10, thinking 'This is rubbish'.

Robert, Siege of the Saxons, was the B picture with Jason and the Argonauts when it was first released in our part of the country. Another film from those days which I always enjoy and
saw on it's release was Brando in Mutiny on the Bounty, a lot dislike it, but I love it.

Yes, Steve, I saw it as the supporting film with Jason and the Argonauts; as my father might have said, after the Lord Mayor's show, the dustman's cart. The Brando version is not bad, but I prefer the original Gable/ Laughton version.

Nigel Green was one of my favourite actors, he appeared in Gordon of Khartoum, 1966, and an episode of the BBC series of Sherlock Holmes, with Peter Cushing. This episode is now lost.

Ah, yes Khartoum, remember seeing that one when it first came out, it had an intermission I think, I know it was a fairly long film for the 60's, we all went straight after school to see that one.

Hi David, the print is IB Tech, incidentaly, Phil at CHC has a print listed as faded for £100.00, I have had Phil's faded prints in the past,
and they were okay, not the gone red types, just fine, the last one was "The Burglars" with Omar Shariff, and the colour is beautiful.

Holy poops, ive just stumbled on this thread while looking through all the 16mm films watched.
What a fantastic print of one of the best films ever made. I am jealous! You cant beat IB Tech and what better title to have on any gauge in both ib and scope. Hugh is one lucky man.
Hugh, if your reading this Tommy will buy this should you ever wish to part with it.
Somehow i think ive got more chance of winning a three times roll over lotto

That is a fantastic print, I would love to watch that on a big screen again. That was a very expensive print when Hugh bought it 20 years ago. I bought the print from Phil Sheard. He had had it on his shelves for at least 2 years, and the price was down to £80. In that time the colour had gone completely, so I managed to get £30 back, and with that I used it to by the 2 disc DVD, plus the book on the making of the film. My copy is pan and scan, and the close ups of the action are very big. I haven't seen another IB Tech print come up.

Only the best for our pal Hugh!

He still is one of the few I know of with a beautiful Derann print of Robocop all as originally distributed!

I'm well Jel!

I think this is a one off, and Hugh would never sell. I know a lot of people don't like red/faded films; I spent a lot of time deliberating whether I should buy it, and Hugh finally persuaded me to go for it. I had seen this with my sister in 1964, then I went on my own when it was re-released in the early 70s. I though I should add it to my collection, and have no regrets. An IB Tech or low fade print would be out of my price range anyway.

You pays your money, you takes your choice,...just as with nigh on almost anything ever associated with this hobby.

You have to be sensible about buying films; we don't want to end up on the streets selling the big issue. It was a case of buy this print or go without. The only other prints I have seen have been Eastman. Red prints are not a problem for me. I recently watched the digital copy, and the truth is, I didn't enjoy it as much as setting up my projector and watching real film. I haven't seen a 16mm trailer come up before Mark; i'm sure that a lot of collectors would love to own that.

There's at least one other adapted scope IB Tech out there, as I owned it about 8 or 9 years ago. Sold it on because I don't like adapted scope, the grain tends to overwhelm especially on IB Tech.
