Not mine but another forum member on the other forum. This is a beautiful copy of this film in stereo sound.
Vidar, I, and other members think you should be taking it easy, no computer screens, you have delicate sight to begin with,
so play the white man, yes its racist, who cares, Honestly mate, your sight is precious, mainly to you, so don't bugger it up
viewing these porings, Vidar, look after yourself, Scott is annoyed, the folk on your side are working for you, please don't
undo any good work. We on the forum only want you to be on the mend, no half measures, so lay off the temptation to view
bloody tv screens, rest for your "glimmers",( eyes ) is needed, YOU ONLY GET THE ONE PAIR!!!!
You little sod pot.
Yes Vidar, the seller want's 600 euro's plus postage ?. A high price, but it look's in great condition and in stereo sound, he may negotiate, its the same guy who had "fearless vampire killers " for sale, I uploaded some picture on here of that feature.
When this was released it was reviewed by ( i think) Mr Wilton who did comment that it was the very best print ever put out on 8mm. It looks superb, its another of those titles i wish i bought and still look out for but as previously mentioned, only at a sensible price. I live in hope
For the best Derann and German prints of the best titles available on 8, it's obvious now, unless completely and utterly knackered, we are never going to get these for "sensible" money ie £150 - £200. Those days are well behind us!
These are the Creme de la Creme of our hobby. Hugh has it right. If we want, we must pay handsomely!
You're either in or you're out ...I say generically.
Star Wars costs £1100 net and it's yours!
Alien **......." £ 360 "...................."
Predator... Well about the same I reckon.
Others high up there include Jurassic Park, E.T., Ice Age, The Mummy (the new version), Chicken run, Die Hard (s), Highlander, Speed, Robocop, Independance Day, Terminator etc etc etc
If you want, then show the colour of your money i'm afraid to say. It's just the way life is nowadays. Simples....
Hmmmmm !!! I wonder what for example my Derann prints of GONE WITH THE WIND and THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES
Scope / Stereo will be worth before I retire. I could be sitting on a small fortune should I ever decide to sell my collection.
I never bought them as an investment but it may be a case to sell while Derann titles are still "hot" among collectors.
Again, that's the strange part about all of this.
GWTW and titles like Hello Dolly are very long films. They were two of the very highest priced films when released.
But these type of titles do come up occasionally and typically struggle to sell even for reasonable money.
It's the later Blockbuster titles and of course Star Wars that seem always to fetch the big bucks now. It is only these that sell in some cases for more than the new price when purchased.
Also, I'd include iconic stars and cult films in there. Things like Texas Chainsaw etc that still have reasonable colour and also Marilyn Monroe Derann titles on low fade as well as the Derann Disney features and 600 footers etc etc, of course.
Again though, they have to be in great condition to allow this to happen.
As for Dave's comment, I agree, but I also think it will be when either the films are beginning to fade or there is hardly anyone left still interested in the hobby.
Until that day, these continue to be THE most sought after titles and therefore command the prices they fetch.
I think it is much to do with the sums of money involved rather than desirability of product David.
Even though £50 is still a lot of money to pay for 8 minutes of film, it is £50 which for most is reachable. £1100 or even £360 often isn't.
