What is at the top of your wish list

We have all done it yearned for the film we would give anything for to have in our collection, mine as "White Christmas" I know its very seasonal and during July when the temp is in the high 20's it doesn't have the same appeal but for me Christmas isn't Christmas without a viewing of Bing and Danny, I always wanted the full feature, my hopes did spring up a little when Derann announced that they hoped to have a deal with Paramount but nothing came about, It was Barry Attwood that helped me out in a way with the trailer to White Christmas on 8mm this was one of my most treasured 8mm films but still would have given anything for the full feature to show at the Shed Cinema

Still wanting an Alien feature Super 8, 16mm or 35mm, Escape From New York 16mm or 35mm, The Thing 16mm or 35mm

Of course I wouldn't have rejected Terminator, Commando, Predator, Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, E.T., Jaws and such either :-)

Films I would like to have on 16mm, no chance on 8, are "Caligula", "The Devils" "Wicker Man", films I have had but foolishly sold for
bugger all "The Song Remains The Same", "Pink Floyd- The Wall", missed on ebay through a bloody power cut "Pink Floyd Live In Pompeii", not that I'm a prog rock fan by any means. I live in hope.

hugh, my biggest regret as far as 16mm was selling the full concert Rock for Kampuchea, it was a stunning superb colour sound print without a mark on it. It had Queen,the who,the pretenders,ian dury, paul mccartney and wings,(with his wife),featuring a super groupe named rockpile made up of Paul McCartney, Denny Laine, the who, Robert Plant and many others, and billy connolly was the host. The repeatable 90 minute film in my entire collection of 16 and 8mm films.
simple and very annoying story, in the mis 80s i decided i wanted to get rid of my 16mm,i only had a projector and 4 films, Roger Lily said he knew someone who would buy it and i made it clear he was not to split the sale,it was all or nothing,
a week later i was utterly pissed off to find he had sold my films and not the projector,i was fuming because i would rather he had sold the machine and not films. to this day i have never found that rock concert on 16 again, all i can get is snippets on youtube and a crappy dvd pirate which went in the bin.

Tom , I share your loss, and I do still keep my glimmers peeled for your film, you mentioned it before, I have films on memory that folk want, and have a good success rate so far, if I ever come across it, you will know. I just resign myself to my stupidity on my selling my gems in the past.

Clyde, Ken used to be seen regularly in these parts, he had a house on one of the lakes and was always in Keswick & Cockermouth,
I've always managed to elude my heroes, Ozzy Osbourne used to call in to my local "The Three Tuns" in Whitehaven, were I lived, he was
actually in lodgings with a lad on Hilltop Road on Kells, less than a mile from where lived,i worked on that site at that time, I used to sit in Geezer Butlers seat in the pub "The Mermaid" in Workington as an apprentice,never met them, my group, BLACK SABBATH, I am an arse full time.

On the top of my list is Hitchcock's Rear Window with his North by Nortwest as a good second. 16mm if possible, but Super 8 would do. I have seen Rear Window on ebay once, but for a crazy amount of money, so it is not very likely to get it any time soon :-)

North By Northwest I have in super 8 very nice too

Just a few of the films I missed over the years.

The Terminator
The Terminator 2
Commando
Jaws
Poltergeist
Psycho
Alien
Aliens
Barbarella
The curse of Frankenstein
Rear Window
A couple of the Disney features too

I would also like the advert reels, trailers, Pathe Pictorials, Look At Life, Cartoons.

A nice lottery win would help. Though I went on Saturday morning for Friday's Euromillions I still lost.
