Well, the funny is that the print I currently have is about a 9 out of 10 on color, which is really good for this title, but sadly, it has a green scratch off the right hand side, not a deep and wide one, but an annoying scratch that runs the whole print. [Frown]

If not for that, I'd be happy with my print.

Your one of the lucky ones with a nice color print! Osi most prints on this are now red!

You might well be right Leon ...

The optical print I have seems a little more complete than the U.S. versions. I could be wrong, but I think that the UK version had a "sex scene" (pretty tame, actually), between Micheal York and the beautiful "Leopard chick!" (yes, I have forgotten her name at this present time).

Update ... Wasn't it Barbera Carrera?

I think they released a three parter? Is this true! I wonder how it looks? Leon.

There was a three parter released by UFA super 8 films in Germany, but I can't vouch for the color.

My feature is red, too - I assumed they all were...I bet the three parter looks great... but then there is the issue of dubbing which is a real hassle with the digests.

It can be a hard search, Brian, but there are good color copies out there. Perseverence!

My dream search is to find some lucky fella that has a bunch of cored features that were in they're grandpas basement, haven't seen the light of day, and they're just selling them as a package deal! They don't come around except in the blue moon, but even with quick fade eastman, those cored features tend to still look pretty good, as I have found from personal experience.
