Well, having a look at this old thread, I feel I have to change the Graemlin used for LOVE STORY...
But (and this is the good piece of news) two rare titles are coming soon...

Hi to all here, just found this site, thought I was the only one wowed by 8mm movies, I started my collection 3 years ago, my most treasured 8mm movie is the original King Kong. My partner got this for me and I was a very happy man on xmas day (2009) I use a Bolex SP8 for my movies, it has a built in speaker, which helps, I watched King Kong, well the 1st 2 reels and loved it. I'm selling my body and brain so I can invest in a better projector, it is a little clunky, but it has served me well [Smile] I hope to invest in full feature movies, and will keep popping back here for ideas [Smile] Well happy new year to all, and keep those projectors projecting [Smile]

Kurt, I just learned something new about Poltergeist. I did not know MGM's original strategy for this film.

"Another interesting piece of film I have is a "Poltergeist" pre-release teaser trailer featuring rather dubious interviews with "paranormal experts." At that time the studio was going more for hard-hitting horror and planned to release it with an "R" rating as indicated by the MPAA ratings card at the beginning of the trailer. There's only one scene from the film included: a quick snippet of the kids struggling against the black hole in the closet. The rest is stills."

I know about this trailer, Greg. Simply weird. Found it a couple of months ago [Eek!] . I did not have any idea it was a rare one.

Yes, I think the "Poltergeist" trailer was intended for viewing by a trade organization like the National Association of Theatre Owners, and was never intended to be seen by the general public. But some clever little bugger at the lab must've thought Spielberg's name meant big business and made a reduction. I don't know who offered it on Super 8mm. Mine was attached to a used print of "Jaws" that I bought at a collector's show.

Yeah, NATO usually had their convention in the spring, and the studios wined and dined theatre owners, many screenings, and lots of product to push for the upcoming seasons. I'm guessing they still have a convention of this type?

Wow, finding that attached to your Jaws print was a nice find, I'm sure.

Oh, I forgot my optical feature of "Footloose".
I think it is a rare title, too.
Isn't it, Gian ? [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Additionally to my first post in this thread there are:
- Raiders of the lost ark (Scope) (I got it) [Smile]
- Indiana Jones and the temple of doom (Scope)
- Indiana Jones and the last crusade (Scope)
- Lone Wolf McQuade (optical sound)
- Rio Bravo
- Star Wars (Scope)
- The return of the Jedi (Scope)
- Titanic (Scope)

I think my reversal copy of "The great race" (with Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood and Jack Lemmon) is the rarest title in my collection. Don't know, if there is another print of it in any collection.

Michael, you are being very naughty tormenting Gian with "Footloose" [Smile]

Your print of "Rio Bravo" - is it the Classic Home Cinema release?

If it's any consolation Gian, "Rio Bravo" is my "elusive Footloose" [Frown]

Rare optical Super 8 features in my collection ....

Point Blank (1967, probablky from the first year optical features were produced)
The Hot Rock (Robert Redford, 1972) great heist comedy caper.
Rocky 3
Children of a Lesser God (William Hurt) Great film!

and ...

Footloose!

Hahahahaha! Just kidding Gian, don't have that one. I had a chance at a copy a year ago for 10.00 dollars but I didn't like the film in general.

If only I had known at the time Gian.

I believe he sold it to someone else, but the name honestly escapes me. He had said that it was browned, so it was probably on KodakSP, but was cored. He had rolled off enough to look at it. He joked that he was going to give it to the dog as a chew toy, but of course, he didn't.

If I ever get offered another print of it, I will definitely buy it so that I can get it for you, as you are "Rescuing" me as well!

Yes folks, Gian and I know something you guys don't! nyah nyah nyah!
