The Professionals. The Rack Series 2 Episode 2

#1 by Tom Photiou , Fri Feb 23, 2018 10:04 pm

Today i recieved yet another A1 print of The Professionals from D Guest. What a stunning print, (where this bloke get this stuff? )
I wasn't waiting any longer to watch it, isn't funny these are on the time and i never bother watching them, get them on this format and i cant wait.
Mounted on 1 2000ft spool and on the superb LPP polyester film stock this time has not got a single line anywhere, the only splices are not even noticed but are only there for the end of part 1 and 2.
The colour is stunning, unfortunately these images are crap but do give you an idea. The Greens are absolutely deep as are all the colours, and the sound as always on 16 optical is outstanding.
I now have two of these so will be only looking for feature films from here on unless something special comes along such as The Avengers, Dads Army or Bilko. Oh, Captain Scarlet or the Thunderbird's.

After informant 'Nosey' Parker has tipped them off about the drug-dealing habits of boxer-turned-gangster John Coogan, CI5 interrogate Coogan's younger brother, Paul, who dies, seemingly after Doyle has hit him. Coogan gets his powerful lawyer to instigate a committee to determine whether or not CI5 should be disbanded but Cowley's own investigations throw light on the true cause of Paul's death as well as exposing Coogan's violent activities and confirming the need for the department's continued existence.

That is a fantastic print Tom, no other word for it, and as screen shots often don't do the films justice, that must look amazing. I remember this episode, it's a very good one. I remember the young man was actually beaten up by a coloured man, and eventually this gangster type learns the truth from his brother and calls of the hitman hired to kill Doyle. It's true what you say , having it on film seems to make it more appealing.
David does seem able to often get the best copies of any title. I won from him on Ebay earlier in the year, a very nice film, and one I had not heard of before, Van Johnson in 'Kelly and Me'. Kelly is a performing dog, and it's amazing. The film was graded as either good or very good, and believe me, it's absolutely flawless.

Never heard of those two Stanley Baker films Clyde; he was a very good actor, enjoyed everything I've seen him in.

yes robert, one of my fav actors. have managed to amass 20 of his features over the years. where's jack features tommy steele aswell, a film i saw back in 1969 and gave me nightmares, as a child. all the horrible characters. that was the film that created the baker obsession. not really true, he died to young. best.
