I regret selling any Super 8 features I sold a few years ago, as I would be getting about twice the price if I was selling them now! Apart from that, I'm another member here who also regrets selling a 16mm 'Tales from the Crypt', especially as a Super 8 film I wanted in part exchange is badly faded now.

Tom - I sympathise regarding 'Rock for Kampuchia' but only wish that it was me that bought it from you! As a collector of films featuring rock music, I know what a phenomenal rarity that is.

I regret selling my entire silent film collection when sound films came out(400 footers from Columbia and Universal 8). I felt bad years later and am still trying to get back what I once had.

Tom@ if you are not rich (I am not rich) it is not possible to get a collection with rare titles without selling something.
But they are some S8 collectors here, they paid much more for his collection than me.
For example few weeks ago someone sold on german ebay his S8 print of Alien for over 800 Euro and this is exact the same price I paid for my mint 35mm War of the Worlds print.
Ok, I know another mint print of War of the Worlds that was sold few years ago for $5000.

Hugh@ no, I don´t have "The Wicker Man" and I must say for my shame, I never watched this movie.

David@ Curse of the Damon was a rare print from the 80´s (in mint condition), this print have the US titles but it is uncut like the UK version. This was the reason that I got top $$$ for this print. For my self I never paid so much for a print. The highest price I ever paid for a print was 1250 Euro. Once I paid this amount for a IB Tech. print of George Pals The Time Machine and another one was a IB Tech. print of To catch a thief.

I thing some brand new Super 8 prints like Titanic cost the same.

You didn't watch "Wicker Man", with all those lovelies dancing about in the nip?

One title that bears mentioning is Passquales much beloved "Goldfinger" ... and in stereo, no less! [Big Grin]

Did Pasquale really have a mint print of Goldfinger? [Big Grin]

Two other items on 16mm i do wish i hadnt sold were
Freebie and Bean & Sweeney 2, Freebie and the bean is another one of those movies you hardly ever see appear on TV.
The Rock for Kampucia concert really was a one off, for those interested take a look at this link and see the line up and all in a 1st class colour print. You can catch parts of thisd on youtube and since starting this thread i have now found a DVD at last and its coming all the way from Nashville [Cool]

Fingers crossed Tom, you might be reunited. Why not place an
ad in one or more of the cine mags.

SPACEBALLS!!!! Sold it back in September because I didn't have an optical sound projector. Little did I know that I would find a great deal on an Elmo GS1200. Who could of seen that! Wish I still had it....

16mm prints of "Jabberwocky" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". I also had some outtakes from "The Ruth Rendell Mysteries" which I used to work on as a runner and regret getting rid of those for nostalgic reasons.
