Yes, Jason is right. The chapter in the book about the ongoing and tedious restoration efforts of Hyatt is fascinating. He's obsessed with getting the film restored....frame by agonizing frame, as is described in the book. What he needs...and I'm surprised he hasn't succeeded in this, is a benefactor to foot the bill to have it done right. At the pace he describes, by the time he gets to the final footage of restoration, the stuff he did at the beginning could need restoring again. I joke about that, but you should read the book and you'll see what I mean.

How much does he need?? Where's my credit card... [Smile]

Seriously though, what about some kind of crowdfunding?

It'd be in!

Managed to find the other 400ft colour extracts, The day of the triffids, paid rather more than i normally would but, hopefully, (it states the colour is still good and the sound excellent), it will make my 400ft Blind danger a very good 600-700 ft extract from this classic movie. Will report back. [Wink]

following on from these posts,i have just obtained "blind danger" from Nigel on e bay,and the colour is very good.
So now I have also obtained the original 400 footer,described as having very good colour,from super 8 warehouse. I have no doubt this will be as described,so I too will have a great 800 footer from Day of the Trffids,with good colour.
Years ago I had the 4x400 version but the colour was very poor.

That's good David. Hopefully like mine the focus and framelines will be the same. I have an idea that these two extracts may have come from the same sourced material. It's a shame that the feature didn't. [Wink]

Tom,
ive always liked this film,even though its a bit silly with its naf special effects etc(like the scene when the train crashes,and everyone flaps their arm around as they fall out,having survived 60 mph to zero in a second!)
I hope my prints will match like yours do.

[Big Grin] [Big Grin] yep your right on all of that. I'm sure yours will be every bit as good. I did pay more than i normally would for a couple of extracts,especially the actual Day of the triffids title cut down, but it is a classic, Enjoy. [Wink]
