ANDREW, URGENT!!! There's a chap on 8mm forum, Daniel Macarone, gave you the heads up on a print of your film.
Its on ebay US at $350.00 no bids yet. Its in your court. Just passing message on.
This is forum member Alan Rik if I'm not mistaken from the other forum, who has a Elmo 1.1 lens too, looks a nice print with some of the screen shots he has uploaded. I have this
print but I'm sure mine is 4 x 600ft on a large reel, I wonder what's missing from Derann version ?.
Hi Andrew, its on a 2400ft beaulieu reel and nearly full to the top, but it could just be the 3 x 600 ft like the Derann feature. I believe its the German print of this feature on Agfa
polyester. Was there a longer version or not ?.
I wouldn't lose any sleep over it lads, the explanation is quite simple, Derann supplied their features on 600' spools, even though
the thing might only have contained a nominal 400' of film, I bought "Lady & the Tramp" supplied on 4x600's, I re spooled onto 2x800's as the film proper is only 75 minutes long, Peter Pan is 77, so however they're spooled up, the running time will be the same.
I suppose it depends on if there was more than one neg used, in the old days I sent in a faulty spool, which when replaced
it came back with a duplicate scene from the end of the previous one, which showed more than one source.
The easiest way would be to contact the chap selling it Andrew, he's best equipped to answer any queries, I wouldn't pass
on the chance of missing your film, especially as the price is more or less what Derann were selling these films for back in the
I will buy one Hugh, just as soon as the opportunity arrives. I have this one in my watch list, so we will just have to see!
There still should be quite a few of these around. It's not a real rarity this one as most of the Disney features are not. There were many printed of the popular titles.
I would be concerned more if it was Hunchback or Icabod or even RDU, I was seeking.
These are very very rare now in top condition....well in any really!
Talking with Barry only recently, he reliably informed me Derek didn't want to take on Hunchback as he felt he wouldn't get his money back!
I am glad he did and it wasn't another that Disney offered him which he chose to decline on!
It's a spectacular print Hunchback and with a meritable storyline, albeit a poor man's B&TB.
A superb watch though on the big screen!
