Derann's bold approach with this release was reinforced by the digest and the trailer also being available in scope or flat. I can still remember my astonishment when looking through my copy of 'Movie Maker' and seeing the full page ad that was specifically about this release! Does anyone know if the flat feature and digest were full frame, or had any masking?

Incidentally, I think the last time they ever released scope and flat versions of the same trailer was 'Titanic'.

Thanks 4 the info. It must have been a highly regarded film at the time. (Or just highly available?)

Adrian, The flat print is full frame with a bit of pan/scan

"Raise The Titanic!", It would of been cheaper to lower the Atlantic!

Adrian - Re scope and flat versions of the Titanic trailer.

If you are referring to the Kate Winslet one, my trailer is non anamorphic widescreen I.E. black bars top and bottom. Are there different versions?
This was super 8. I know it was also released on 16mm, so were you referring to that release?

Raise the Titanic is one of those film which did better on 8mm than it did at the flicks!

Anyone else remember watching Derek project it at the open day launch? Great times and memorable.

Likewise I have the Scope feature, Flat feature, 2X400 and the later 600ft from the new neg along with flat and scope trailers. Enough to drive anyone crackers but I love it. Over the years its got to the point when we have multiple poster and lobby card sets and even a visit to Malta for what's left of the giant scale model.

The scope prints at the time were a bit ground breaking in quality and hold my hand up to re dubbing very many to Stereo over the years making for a greater experience.

Happy memories of golden days.

By the way folks John Barry brilliant music from the film as the "Complete Film Score" is available new from Silva Screen records 2018. I had always thought that it was available in the past, but reading the back cover to this record I find it was not. A lot of work has gone into producing this LP, and the results are brilliant, and as such, would highly recommend this LP.

Well my better half wanted to watch it tonight. This could be interesting, as Yvonne can be critical about movies "very picky",anyway my thoughts tonight were, is she going to find the film boring, the bottom line of screening "Raise The Titanic" will it work?

Well it did and to surprise Yvonne enjoyed it, so there you go. I wonder how it would get on, if it was again to hit the cinema screens with todays audience?.

If Dirk Pitt figured out Jack Dawson was still alive and trapped in the ship's vault, and they remade Raise The Titanic as a rescue mission, they'd pack the theaters for sure!

That's not a bad idea Steve [Big Grin]

Well looking at much of what is coming out of Hollywood these days, it might even get an Oscar [Big Grin]
