The German Releases

#1 by Hugh Thompson Scott ( deleted ) , Mon Apr 11, 2016 1:19 pm

Hi Tom, the 3x400' of Cross of Iron, mine has a bit of fade, not much, the edition of Das Boot is faded, the others are very good. I honestly think this is down to storage conditions of previous ownership, not film stock. I have prints of films bought in the '70s that have perfect colour still of Marketing, UFA & Piccolo and I'll put up pics to show, indeed the print of "Sinbad & The Eye of the Tiger" leaves
the Columbia edition behind. A lot in quality has to do with master material, but Columbia films released it, so how come the German print is superior? There's an anomaly.

Thanks Hugh, i will be on the lookout again for Cross of Iron on 3 x 400. Your right about the storage, all my films are in a dark windowless room and the temp is always cold even in the hot summer days. Very few of our prints are faded with the exception of a few older prints or prints we have bought with slight fade.

A few Dollars More looks out of this world Hugh given its age and the stock that was used back then. Brilliant mate, truly brilliant!

Just to add one from Piccolo, their release of the 2x400' "Sinbad & the Eye of the Tiger", which has colour drop, this was a '77 purchase, I was surprised, but age comes to us all.

Do you keep them with German sound or re-dub them?

Look very good

Thanks for those kind words Andrew, I'll have a look at some of the other early stuff, just to see how they're staying the course.

Hi Vidar, "Few Dollars More" & "My Name is Nobody" I redubbed into English, no synchroniser, wild tape, just by patience and going back to last point of sync to work your way through the film, painstaking, but it works. I redubbed the Italian 6 reel "Fistful", but had to put it back into Italian, as the BBC broadcast print was cut! Now I just leave them as foreign tracks Vidar, picture is primary after all, and it is
very time consuming. I even managed to record the Americom sound and disc Curse of Frankenstein & Dracula the same way, by ignoring the disc and transferring sound to tape for transfer. There were no video tapes then as such, which would have made life easier than by using 1/4'' tape and cassette recorders.

They look great Hugh, once upon a time 3 x 400ft I bet that makes a decent cut down, and with the colour holding well one to look for. A pity they didn't do Jason in a 3 x 400ft, that would have been great. I like the Marketing packaging too, very good storage boxes and artwork.

Holy cow Hugh, they look fantastic, IF, you should ever consider selling any of those westerns please do let me know Hugh. We are big fans, the closest we ever came to being able to get the fistful or few dollars more were b/w editions but they were in very poor shape. Well done on those,1st class mate.

Hugh keeps making me envious. I think I will have to make the journey, and watch his films. Keep up the good work.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

Hi Tom, thanks for the kind words, actually the Dollars films still pop up on German ebay, in fact Bert at Super8Warehouse has a print
of Fistful on his list, slight fade, but knowing Bert, it'll still be a decent film. I'll put up a few more from Orca Killer Whale & "Companeros" starring my little lookalike Tomas Milian, 'cept I'm better lookin'. Orca is Marketing, Companeros is UFA.
I can see David starting a collection of foreign film.

Nice colour. Too bad the Germans insist on dubbing

UFAs "COMPANEROS" with, as Tom knows, a great Morricone score, as does ORCA.

Cheers Andrew, I can see Vidar's point, but I've gotten used to the foreign lingo over the years, could be worse, imagine a narrator
Columbia style!!! There's a horrible thought.
