I have a reasonable print of this film but being an MGM release copy the colour appears to be fading. Can anyone tell me if later prints of this title had a sharper image with better colour?

I´ve got two copies on Super 8 and 16mm. Both are great, with sharp picture and stunning colour.

Tom, I have an MGM print since the 1970s and the colors are still great. Maybe the one you have wasn't stored correctly. Hmmm...very interesting...the box says MGM Super 8 P.O. Box 296, Bogota, New Jersey(N.J.) 07603; and the original leader says Neg.#4 (F.C.L.) Ken Films. No other info but I didn't check the tail. [Confused]

I have a Derann print,and it has a fairly good appearance.
The colors are good, but it needs some sharpening.
I purchased this about 10 years ago.

However I also have a 16mm LPP, low fade and it's super sharp
and saturated with vivid color.

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!

I have a French "Film Office" super 8 print of this title and it is superb. Great sharpness and saturated colours.

GS1200 Xenon with Elmo 1.0...great combo along with a 16-CL Xenon for that super bright white light.

I bought a Film Office print of this at the Big Screen Scene Revival today off Ian, it is on Agfa stock and has good colours, so I am very pleased.

I'm intrigued by the Film Office print as I have a Derann print from back in the day (circa 1992) which although on LLP is rather soft and with muted colours.

Still, it isn't faded, so when I screen it each Christmas, you just forget that and just enjoy it... [Smile]

My MGM print has slightly muted colour, perhaps its the start of fading. My Derann print print is beautiful.

The Derann print is the best!

Walton Films has also this title and mine is stikk with perfect color.

I believe this is one of the latest release as the art work is different with most of Walton's
