Chester,

Derann and Classic Home Cinema are the only ones releasing new Super 8mm product for the collector. They both need and deserve our support if we don't want every post on this forum to start with the phrases "Remember when..." or "If only...."

The Three Little Bops is an excellent one reel cartoon.
It's a jazzed up version of the three little pigs,
with a jazzy soundtrack which is done
in a style that only Warner Brothers could
only imagine.

This is a print that we have been searching for years to find.

If this were available from Derann in 16mm as well,
My friend and myself would purchase it in 16mm.
Just as I had purchased that beautiful print of
Mickey Mouse in the Brave Little Tailor.

Also, I do know that the University of Southern California Television
and Movie Archives (UCLA) has a pristine print of
the Fleischer cartoon: Christmas Comes One Time a Year.

Unlike what has circulated for years, their title is complete with all of the original opening and closing titles with rich full color.
This is a must cartoon for any collector, and a great additon to a holiday
program.

Another great Christmas cartoon, is the MGM Classic: Alias St. Nick.

I think that Tim Allen's The Santa Clause is another wonderful
Christmas addition. It's off beat, but very endearing.

Barry:

Shame about 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
I would have loved that on any format.

Barry as you mentioned: the chances of obtaining
a release that is 50 years old and is in pristine condition is becoming
very difficult. If we do not strike now when the iron is hot,
we may never see the likes of film anytime too soon.
From how I see it, 16mm is practically dead.

Why was Dumbo never released?
That film is charming, perfect characterizations, has great color - especially the dream sequence after Dumbo becomes inebriated. and how about that tender song Baby Mine?
Best of all, it all concludes with a rousing finale- Yes I've seen a Elephant Fly.

Produce a new print of Warners classic cartoon The Three Little Bops on non-fade stock and I'll take one.

My other Derann Warner cartoons are great, but my classic 16mm and Techno Super 8 prints are fading. To think I sold a Fuji 16mm Duck Dodgers for an Eastman print that at the time was in much better condition!!! Wish I still had the Fuji print!

Spider-Man is indeed a very good print. The title didn't sell though so as much as I'd like a Super 8 copy of Spider-Man 2 there is no market for it. Shame as the 35mm master material would be relatively easy to find - and it's in 'Scope unlike the first film... and it looks better on film than it does on HDTV.

Reel 1 from Master and Commander offered independently is a good idea.

Wallace + Gromit is a nice movie, but isn't one Nick-Park-Feature not enough for the super-8-market? "Chicken Run" as full feature is still available on super-8 ...

So here are my favorites:
Blade Runner
War of the Worlds (2004)
Starship Troopers
One of the new Star-Wars Episodes...

Michael, I'm sure Dumbo was released. I will have to check my titles tonight but I'm sure I have a copy.

It gets bad when you cant remember which titles you have in your collection.

This is a great thread! Which company has ever asked, "What would you like to see?"? I can't remember when!
Thanks Derann! [Smile]

Rik,

don´t know about the markets outside but here
marketing film and UFA asked the buyer of their films.

They asked for the favourite genres. How many reels a super 8 release should have. The prices. The profession and age. And if a black/white television is still used at home.
In 77/78 UFA asked for interesting about one reelers. Later they offered dubbed KEN one-parters.
The UFA postcards from 1980 asked for titles which the collector would buy immediately.

 -
(left: marketing-film postcard from 1974, front UFA postcard from 1977/78)

Back to the topic.

I would prefer selected scene editions
from horror, science fiction. [Big Grin]
for example
- The Hills Have Eyes
- Jurrasic Park III
- Wrong Turn
and
no more Matrix please. [Roll Eyes]

Andreas

Why doesn't this forum have a "quote" function? It would make it a lot easier to direct responses to specific individuals. Anyways...

Doug M.: I know about Derann and Classic Home Cinema, but isn't there a third company called "The Reel Image" out of Ohio, USA that sells new Super 8 prints? Not sure, but I recall reading that somewhere.

Michael D.A.: Never, ever, confuse UCLA and that "other" university across town. [Wink]

The University of Southern California (USC) has an okay film school. But in addition to a first-rate film school of its own, The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has the amazing Film and Television Archive--an incomparable resource.

It does, you just have to work at it a bit. [Smile] For example, I marked and copied the text from your post, then hit the reply button, clicked on the QUOTE button to insert the quote tags, and pasted your text inbetween the tags. Not quite straightforward, but the easiest way to do it.

Correct, that company is run by Steve Osborne. He doesn't have a website but he does mail out printed catalogues - if you want one, email him at thereelimage_043@yahoo.com [Smile] (I hope I got that address right, corrections welcome)

Tim and Jan,
Correct me if I am wrong, Derann and CHC are printing brandnew super 8mm while "Reel Image" is selling their products (distributing) not releasing.

John,

There are already prints of "Them!" on 8mm, I believe they come from Germany, contact CHC, I believe they can still get them new, I had a copy a few years back, excellent quality too!

Tim,

You had written:

__________________________
How about that ! An italicized Quote. [Big Grin]

Anywho,
Ooops!
Thanks for the correction, on USC, and UCLA.

Now if we can only persuade Adrian,
to contact the archive, for
them to release a pristine print of
Christmas Comes One Time a Year [Wink]

P.S.: Did I mention, welcome to the Forum?

Michael
