"Fail Safe" and "Charly" Super-8 Digests

I have the following 400' Super-8 digests arriving soon: "Fail Safe" and "Charly". I've been searching for the "Charly" digest for many years and I'm very happy to finally own one. I had the 200' sound version of "Fail Safe" back in my early days of collecting and it was by far one of the nicest edits I'd ever seen. From what I understand the 400' is even better so I'm really looking forward to owning this one.

Still have my feature of "Charly" Doug, the best thing Cliff Robertson ever done, he acts his little socks off, a good back up cast too.
A very thoughtful sci-fi film that is getting close to fact.

Hugh,
Is your feature the one that ABC Films offered in Super-8 or a 16 mm print? One day I hope to own the feature in either gauge.I fully agree that it's Cliff's best work and he earned a well deserved Oscar for the role.

Hi Doug, its the ABC super 8 print, quite nice, I could be wrong, but I think they were shortened slightly, but like their "Straw Dogs"
etc, they were more than acceptable.
