I have some foggy memories (what else at my age?) of Entertainment Films offering regular 8mm magnetic sound complete feature prints of She-Demons, Frankenstein's Daughter, and Missile To The Moon back in the mid-late 1960's, though no longer have any old EF brochures to back them up.

All these beloved drive-in clunkers were released theatrically by Astor Pictures, and Entertainment had made a deal with Astor for the 8mm rights to L & H's The Flying Deuces (then still under copyright) so it would have made sense for them to have picked these up too. I do know Frankenstein's Daughter was released in a 200' 8mm silent cutdown re-titled "She-Monster Of The Night."

She-Demons, as you may know, starred Irish McCalla (TV's Sheena of the Jungle.) I've been trying to verify this 8mm info to pass along to a wonderfully obsessive Australian who is possibly the world's greatest Irish/Sheena fan. He's a fair dinkum bloke (Aussie for a mensch) and I'd like to be able to pass along this info to him. Thanks!

Hi Jeff, I definitely remember being surprised to see a super 8mm B&W sound feature print of SHE DEMONS on eBay several years ago....

I have an 800' sound mini-feature of Frankenstein's Daughter from Entertainment Films... but I have never seen a full feature. I also know they released two 200' digests - the one you mentioned which was from the beginning of the film before the Monster is even created and a second one with the film's real title. If anyone knows of a full feature release please let us know 'cause I would love to have it!
