I'm thinking it might be a good idea to re-start this discussion with all the extra films listed, (opticals) to revamp that list which must be, (by now) up to about 70 or 80 titles, (and continuing to grow!)

Ahhh, I pine for the old days when Dave Thomas Films had numerous optical super 8's at bargain prices, but even he's fiding that many of his are starting to fade. I wonder how he stored them?

Hey Gang,

I was thinking recently if Eddie Murphy's
Trading Places, and Coming to America was released on
Super 8 Optical?

I do know for a fact that "Trading Places" was released as a super 8 optical print, as I remember it being on Dave Thomas Films lists back in the late 80's, so there's hope for you there! Great comedy, by the way, no doubt censored, however, as there's some nudity in the original.

Osi,

Thanks for the information.

I remember that neat little cameo at the end
of Coming to America with Ralph Bellamy and
Don Ameche reprising their roles as the Duke Brothers,
and thought how wonderful it would be to own
both films as a double feature.

I've brought this thread up to the front for the benefit of Osi.

Osi, if you have a look through the post you should be able to assemble, not so much "the definitive" list but at least one that gives you a good idea of what prints were made available through Derann and others.

If I were at home and had access to my own computer, with Word and what not, I would do a bit of copying and pasting and produce a list myself but as it is, I'm having to use an internet cafe so it's not so easy.
