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.
