Chris,

You are not the only one who would like "Alien" [Smile]
That is one of the hard-to-get titles (as a complete print) in S-8; most likely those who have it aren't about to sell it.

Claus are you talking a complete feature or digest.

As far as I followed, Chris is just new to 8mm (in fact he has only 600" projector capacity) I believe he is looking the digest one, which this is very common and come at ebay very often.

Unless you are talking something specific in that digest version, are you?

cheers,

Winbert,

Thanks for catching me there [Smile] I was jumping to conclusions, thinking of the full feature. The 400-foot cutdown is easily available. Just beware of red copies.

Larry, for GBP 9.9 starting price (without box) is too expensive . This title is commonly sold around $6- 10 (GBP 4-7) with Original Box.

rgds,

Hey cheers for help and advice, I have been after this title for a few years now, and keep missing out on the bids on ebay, I have put a bid in on the 9.99, I know it has no box but its the contents I'm after [Smile]

Have to invest in a better more accommodating Projector [Smile]
