Star Wars on Super 8 colour sound cine film. This is the 800' cutdown of the whole film, and is complete in itself with opening and closing titles. Looks like this film was cleverly and well edited from different reels of film. Some thin lines (not deep or green!) on the right-hand side for first few minutes; these then vanish. Colour slight fade; some parts better than others. Mounted on a Gepe 800' plastic reel, in plain grey plastic box. £20. smcconway @ hotmail. com

Simon, when you say this is a cutdown, do you mean it's one that's taken from the Ken films digests, and spliced in order?

I'm not sure, but it is complete in itself. How do I tell?

Chris...then upgrade [Big Grin]

Many cheap projectors but reliable for 800 spool. I am using Chinon 330 MV which is only $30 from Ebay.

Here's your chance to upgarde Chris -

Simon - the film is most likely to be the original Ken Films STAR WARS 400ft #1 and 2, that has been "re-edited" into their correct order. It is a satifying 35 minutes, when in this format.
