Heres one for our American friends hope they can help me, going back to the mid 1990's I used to have a newspaper, Im sure it was called "The Big Reel" it really was like a newspaper and it had all the film delaers adverts in it and the titles they were selling, the question is that I bought quiet a few off a dealer in the States and im sure he was in Florida I think his name was Ray somebody it might be Cotts or something can anybody help me with the name and what happened to him.

Thanks

Dave

Ray Courts is right Clyde, also known as SABUCAT. The Big Reel had some great stuff David, managed to nail quite a few
nice films myself back in the day, got ripped off twice there as well. I asked the same question on 8mm forum a few years ago,
as far as I can gather he's still there, although I think not as prolific as once was. I remember he was full of it because he had a
full length print of Star Wars on 16mm, did I want it, I replied "Nah, I'm quite happy with my super 8mm Derann print", he probably
though me quite mad, but I'm still happy with it.

Your not going to get better than the Derann 8mm print of Star Wars, remember it came from fox's 35mm neg
