Here's hoping Del, I'll keep vigilant, as no doubt other members will, in the meantime, try Tony at Bucks Film or Barry at Indy 8, as stock keeps coming in that might not be on their lists, not forgetting Phil at CHC.

I thought Buckingham was not having lists? I asked for list a couple of times, but never got any

Hi Vidar, as I understand it, he sends out on receipt of a few stamps, he is still active and I must get back on his mailing list myself,
he isn't too dear either.

I have it Del and its in lovely condition, still has great colour also, but it's that's long ago,when I last watched it, I cannot remember whether it is in scope, or not.

I shall check it out later on this week when I'm off work.

We had to sell ours recently due to the amount of fade. Such as shame as it is a very good 3 x 400 footer, hoping another may turn up one day but i have an idea they are all either fading or faded.

Last time I watched this one Tom, it surprised me just how the good the colour still was on it. I will dig it out later this week and post some shots here. It will be interesting to see if it's still as I remember here with this one.
It came from a veteran collector/ owner here in Lancashire that supplied me quite a few at the time including a much sought after mint stunning Derann print of "The Little Matchgirl" and a very special to me, limited first edition release of Snow White that quite frankly, blows my other Derann print of this film out of the water. Stunning print.

His son (my age) was selling the films, and I was lucky enough to get a "meet" with his Dad. He was a lovely warm man that was still putting on film shows in the area well into his 60's and 70's apparently. He boasted he had over 120 features to offer people on his list in his "hey days" on Super 8mm.
From all the classic musicals to war films, drama and classic early cinema films.
He even gave me one of his original lists of his film "selections" offered to his audience. Another snippet of A4 to treasure for people like myself!

His eyes lit up as he was recollecting these memories from bygone happy days in the way you simply never forget. Similarly, I was laughing as his his good lady wife was rolling her eyes at his sheer enthusiasm.
A truly wonderful couple of days in the hobby, that I will never forget.

I envisaged that is the way my wife will look one day over all of this hobby, regarding my outlook over all of the years ha ha.

If my memory is correct my Super 8 mm CineVision Scope 3 x 400' print was showing signs of fade.

Actually David, I bought a print secondhand back in the late 80's, it looked warm then, but hasn't got any worse, I can put up pics,
but the film seems okay, no worse from when bought.
