Hey folks, I'm testing the waters on this one ...

I have, for trade, an optical super 8 print of "From Russia With Love". It is on 3X600ft very full reels. (these optical features were edited a little to fit into a two hours or less run time).

Please note that the print is a Kodak DP, and it does have some browning to the overall color spectrum. However, I think this is also partly due to the master material they used, as some sections are nearly spot on color, shifting from obviously faded looking to great and left your going, "Huh?"

Very sharp print with very good optical sound.

I am looking for good prints (on optical sound) of these titles ...

Land that Time Forgot (1975, Doug McClure, not the sequel "People that Time Forgot")
Gorky Park (unfaded, very hard to find unfaded)
The Last Unicorn
The Man Who Would Be King (also ... unfaded, british release of this optical print preferrable).

or ... if there is another interesting print to chose from.

I Thank you For Your Time

Yes!

I remember seeing it advertised in Dave Thomas Films paper mailer, way back in 1989, as an optical super 8 feature. Wish I had snapped it up back then. It was choice between "High Road to China" and "Unicorn", and I bought "China" and two weeks later was going to snap up "Unicorn" and it was gone.

One of mine too. Dang! I'll be bidding against someone else for it!

Yep, I believe the band "America" did the music on "Unicorn", am I right?

By the way, they are still, to this day, an incredible band to hear live!
