Hey I recently purchased a short SP 8MM B/W Silent of Captain Mephisto and the Transformation Machine. I have searched for more titles and a longer version, is there or was there ever a longer version ? I paid £4.99 on ebay for this reel, its in excellent condition.

Thanks guys n gals [Smile]

Chris,

Republic released Captain Mephisto and the Transformation Machine in 50', 200' and 400' silent versions.

Republic was one of the few companies to release 400 footers back in the days of silent digests.
