Looking at those stills, it looks like something made with a camcorder on a sunday afternoon. Hey, just put this scarf round your mouth and I will point this knife at you.

And let me grab you round your neck while I stare at the camera lens. [Big Grin]

If he couldnt make any money out of it, what makes others think they can. There are no DVD's left (the 5 produced are wrapped up for christmas), but he will supply you all the masters you need to make more DVD's. Just dont make too many unless you have orders for them.

I wouldnt mind betting that the Website could be the better deal. Just dont sell any of Nick Palumbo’s films on it, and instead make it a general site for Horror DVD's.

As you say Claus, one for the suckers out there.

Just realised that when a post containing a link is edited, the link becomes inoperable.

I s there any way to prevent this?

Mike,

Actually if it is not too long, you can just do "cut" and "paste" like what you did. But if the URL is too long, it seems that this forum cannot handle.

FYI writing an Ebay URL can be done in 2 different ways:

1. The URL that is very long like you did above.

2. Or the shorter version (by adding only the item# to the generic address). So for the above URL, it will be seen like this: http://cgi.ebay.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320322469826

Hope that helps,

Winbert,

The link was fine when I first posted, but, when I edited the post this morning the link became unuseable.

Not to worry. No big deal I guess [Smile]

What's with this reel this guy's trying to sell? It looks like the magnetic strip is melting...or the film got wet...orit's one of those seldom-seen nitrate super 8 prints and it's eroding... [Confused]

(Yes, I know there's no super 8 nitrate. It's a joke)

If this link is correct, it just looks to me like a badly taken photograph.

I agree with Graham about the photograph.

I have just received a John Wayne Trailer reel, containing ELEVEN trailers, on an 800ft reel, from this seller. They were bought on Friday last and were delivered to me, today, Thursday. They are all in excellent condition and shipped from the U.S. to the U.K. in SIX days (including a weekend).

I would have no bother whatsoever, buying from him again, that's for sure.

'Nutbag' is still alive on EBay...hey, at that kind of money, as 'controversial', and 'un-edited' and what ever else you wish to call it, who wouldn't jump on the chance to own a DigiBeta copy of a lousy home-made horror movie? The tape in itself is quite expensive, so if nothing else, you can record something of value on it.
But wait, you can get it blank for less...ah, I guess I will pass, after all.

How much would you be prepared to pay for a B&W print of a colour Willie Whopper cartoon title?

£8?
£12?
£15?

I might even go as high as £20 because I've never seen this title on e-bay before. Provided it had a good description of the print's quality.

But wait! What if the print came from MGM's EMI library? How much of a premium is that worth? "Nothing", I hear you cry. Nonsense, it's copy number 1 - wow, how r@@@@re is that????

I'll tell you - starting price £175.

For a print with no leader, no description of its quality and, oh, they got the year it was made wrong too.

Anybody want to tell him or just force him to pay the high listing price as punishment?

How the hell can a projector be "in full working order" when it requires three belts which have "crumbled away" and also possibly a "plastic cog"??

You can have any color you like, providing it is "red".

I think it should be "G.I.Reds".

Mabye the bidder is only paying that price as the 1200ft reels are nice elmo ones. $24 isnt a bad price for the 2 and he could sell the film for say $9 on smaller reels. Or mabye he has got one of those colour correction filters hoping for miracles [Big Grin] [Big Grin] .

As you say Graham, the price that has been bid is fine taking into account the "reel type". It was the "description" that amused me, "Good color?" [Smile]

Yep! Rarities of Rarities -- "A rare and great item for film and Batman collectors" -- that's right, you can have the first (very abridged) reel of fifteen (though there were only six in this series of digests), and sorry, there's no sound, BUT at least it's mint condition, all for the low, low price of $49.99. Don't delay, bid today!

The Batman reel..... If I read it right it is a re-listing. It didn't get a bid at $39.95, so he's relisted at $49.95!
If it doesn't sell this time perhaps he'll make sure of a sale by listing again at $999.95!
