Just screened the full feature from Derann wow what a transfer. Razor sharp, strong sound and great contrast and colors (Technicolor)
This is the 1948 version with Lana Turner, Gene Kelly, Vincent Price and more. What a cast.
The movie runs a little over two hours. Aspect Ratio 1.37:1
The budget for this movie was $4,474,000. That was a lot of money back in 1948.

Storyline

The hectic adventures of D'Artagnan, a young provincial noble who just comes to Paris to enter the musketeers. He will meet action, love, hate, the king and the queen as his impetuousness gets him involved in political plots... and of course virile and indestructible friendship with the three musketeers Athos, Porthos and Aramis.

I've seen this film before from other screenshots and i must say that it is one of the truly GORGEOUS techniclor as well as Derann prints from an excellent source. A great find! Thanks for showing it off! [Smile]

Have this in my collection too. Bought from Derann as a white box lab fault. Now I had bought a film with a lab fault before, printed too dark. In fact need a 2 million watt bulb. My Three Musketeers was almost perfect, except for about ten seconds. It was like the negative had jumped off the printer and made pretty rainbow patterns. Other than that great.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

I would gladly take a film at a discounted price if all but ten seconds were perfect.

Gee, it would make it one the best "digests" ever! [Big Grin]

David,
in my print are exactly the same 10 seconds of "rainbow patterns"; at the scene of the first appearance of Milady de Winter...
How does they say in CE3K: "You are not alone"...
