Well, although not overly priced for the length,

Why the hell would you want this? It's filmed off the TV and even has the bars going up or down throughout the reel!!
Even funnier, it has bids [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

I use this title as my test film with newly acquired Super 8 projectors.
I bought it new from Derann in 1976 when it cost £6.
It's quite short and is believed, perhaps, to have been made for television.
In addition to the Beatles (Paul plays piano) there is Yoko Ono who appears to be knitting.

Mainly odd because of the original price and that it was sold from Debenams department store, I didn't know they sold films. The 400ft Walton Cary on Cleo new price £39.95.

Must be very very rare as I never heard of this being released as a full feature by PM Films (as the box states) or anyone else. £350 for the 600ft cut down that I know was releases is very high.

£229 for an LPP trailer for Bladerunner????? I'm sure I got this in a trailer reel from LA Films for less than £20 for them all and if like the other reel I have LPP too.

I just think the seller must assume people are idots. Again i would add that if it started at 10 or 20 then went to 200+ then that would be good luck on the seller. To actually start it at this is just plane scilly.
Brian is correct, this one was on a reel with other trailers from L A films.

I must be doing something right with my ebay listings, this trailer for Blade Runner listed the print sound and colour just the way i do. Separated and clear. Price was still scilly though [Big Grin]

In addition to the crazy price (150 euros for a 120 mt/200 ft digest), funny to notice : there is a spelling mistake on the cover. Logan's Run is L'âge de cristal" in French. Cristal is wrongly spelled "crystal".

https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Super-8-Lage-de-crystal- Son-et-Couleur-Logan-s-Run/143258466918?hash=item215adeba66:g:fmYAAOSweJlc4RhM

The same seller asks no less than 250 euros for a 130 mt/ 425 ft digest.

@dominique- it is weird how they named that! I am always baffled seeing french to english/english to french translations, that don't seem to match the original.
Would not 'la course de Logan' be more appropriate?

Btw- the french wikipedia list the name correctly!
[url= https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27%C3%82ge_de_cristal]https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27%C3%82ge_de_cristal[/url]

Mind you, to me "L'age de cristal' means 'The age(era) of Crystal' or in others words, 'The fragile age' a time that can break like glass/crystal/cristal. But the name i believe came from the fact that in this movie 'each person is implanted at birth with a "life-clock" crystal in the palm of the hand that changes color as they get older and begins blinking as they approach their "Last Day.”

You're right, Mathew, the title comes from the life-clock. Funny to see the changes that are made sometimes when a film cross a border. For an unknown (by me, at least) reason, in the TV serie, the original date of 2319 is changed in 2218 in the French version.

I know The Rocky Horror (and Picture) Show has a great cult following but £250 for the 400ft extract (German version)????

Tom, this is the re-listed much lower price than the original asking price which was even higher! I too find it odd. There is demand for Hammer Horror in LPP, but let's be sensible regarding the price.

Good price for the print (Derann extract "Doe Ray Me) £20 but £500 "Economy delivery" must be a laugh. But probably a typo a couple of other from him have £5.

$200 for five frames cut from a 35mm print of Snow White "actually used in vintage theater from Japan." Jump on it!

From the description: “Pre-owned.The image is taken from behind with a light source.Since it was actually used in the movie theater, there are curls, scratches, dirt.”
