Becareful, they are italian prints.

We knew that majority of Italian prints are not legal and ex-rental, so they suffer from badly faded and scratch.

If they are sold below $100 may be still OK for those kind of print, but if ever goes to close to Derann's price, better to avoid.

my 2 cents,

I agree with Winbert. Ocasionally, the Italian super 8 market would release a good print, but I have found that as a general rule, the prints were taken from soon to be destroyed ex-theatrical prints with LOTS of wear!

Osi and Winbert, don't forget we also produced and distributed so many official titles that would not exist on 8mm, otherwise.

Derann rules, no doubt, but, just to give a 'couple' of examples, I'd like to remind some of the most popular official super 8 distributors we had in Italy during the 70's:

SAMPAOLO
Sil.Ma
EuroFilm
Fapex
Emmepì
Cifop
C.I.C.
Techno Film
Avo Film
Argos Film
Lyon's
Medusa
Oceania
Shark
Universal Cine
Morgani Cinematografica
Integral Film
Filmautori
La Cineteca
Cinecofas etc. etc. etc...

We don't even know how many titles were printed here in Italy. So so many. And yes, most of them are on faded stock. But I think I already stated so many times the format died immediately after low fade stocks were introduced. It's plenty of excellent movies and prints, sometimes very good b/w ones. All I want to say is not all Italian prints are rubbish.

Osi, don't get me wrong, but if Italian 8mm piracy had not existed here, you would not probably have in your collection a print of 'Song of the South' or a (bad) copy of 'Fantasia' including a censored sequence that was never released on any other format.

Most of them listed on Ebay are ex library copies, that's undeniable, but it is still possible to get prints from private collectors which are in very good condition.

As an Italian collector, I think it would be better to leave us to comment upon our 8mm production (which does not include only bootlegs or Disney's on faded stocks).

I also would like to remind Derann too, before 1982, were used to print on fading stock.

Gian, that's a phenomenal list of distributors! I don't suppose there's any other country in the world which had so may operating in the same decade.

Ciao Adrian. Definitely right. And consider I did not mention all of them (and it would be, once again, quite impossible to list all titles that were produced and distributed).
Ciao.

I have some 3 reel boxes from IE International (from Milan) and these still have nice colors.
So I agree with Gian, there definitely came good prints from Italy.

Hi All,

I agree with Gian and It's really a pity that here, especially among very expert and long time collectors, it seems to me there's a sort of prejudice about Italian prints.
Of course all of us know that bootlegs and unauthorized copies have been printed in every country and not only in Italy, but indeed a lot of very good prints were also printed here and I'm quiet sure that many collectors are aware of this.

Derann is a real "exception" and I think it cannot be compared to any other Company, be it English, French, Deutch, Italian...

Flavio

Flavio and Gian,

Your points are well taken, however the majority of posts about poor quality Italian prints have come from Italian film collectors. These posts normally concerned bootleg titles, which would get a lot of attention here since the films weren't widely available. This unfortunately appears to have lead people to mistakenly assume that these were representative of your country's 8mm output. It's the same as if collectors outside the US assumed that Thunderbird and Atlas prints were the standard for our releases.

It's good to dispel this perception.

Doug
