Well, this is a first for a long time for us.
Got a call from my Brother who went to the very nice town of Tavistock today. He visited the towns indoor market and found a table with a few "old super 8s. Nothing too spectacular, but the guy had the 400 footer of Blazing Saddles, A Flintstones Episode, Little Bamm Bamm. From series 4 in 1963 400 ft colour sound, before canned laughter was put on these. And a small reel with two of the robot Smash ads. All in the original boxes and all for £22. (managed to get him down from £25), As this was in effect a flea market he rang me and i said, take a chance. Got them home tonight and cleaned them all up with filmgurd but did expect at least one to be damaged or faded, well,
a great surprise, every one is like a brand spanking new print, all in original boxes, all with perfect vibrant colours with no fade and excellent sound.
I shall pop some pictures on here over the Easter weekend in the review section. A happy bunny today. Not a single black line on a single frame, no splices and full original leaders and tails, & all keepers.
