my Brother and I have been putting our collections together now and I cant believe how many shorts and trailers etc that we both bought over the years. Im still looking for a couple of ad reels that I haven't got though. Ironic isn't it, when I use to go pictures in the 70s/80s, after a couple of ads I use to think, "how many bloody adverts & trailers are we going to sit through", now we're paying to own them

your right Graham, we do have quite an extensive collection of ad reels.The only reason i bought my first one was simply because i had an episode of the Sweeney, because these all had the "end of part one" etc i just fancied putting it onto a 1200ft spools with ads of that time. i bought an ad reel for £10 and inter cut ads between the parts and i was hooked. After this reel though i kept the ads all together rather than divide them. we now have 15 ad reels and i think there all superb,great nostalgia and derann did a great job with the quality. i must admit im always surprised at what they fetch on ebay but unfortunatly this seems to be the way things are going. I guess its good to know our films can command these prices,when Derann fell i thought our collections would fast become worthless,im pleased i was wrong.
