ahh right, in that case, with that in mind, do you think some people either lose the plot or just get plane greed set in?
On this war of the worlds record promo i recently sold an A1 copy for 27 quid with screen shots showing how good the print was. I was more than happy with this having listed it for 9.99 but this one with a start price of 150 from someone within the hobby just covers all of what has been said about eBay prices and the people who try it on. It even states possible scratching and fade with no kind of guarantee of it being any good.
Not so much an oddity but a disgraceful listing by someone who,(by the sound of it) should know better and is hoping to rob a buyer with very little knowledge of the hobby.

Ha, ha! Thought it was expensive for the feature. Then saw it was only the digest! Also, terrible poor screenshots...

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.

If I didn't have a copy Brian I'd be bidding,Not!! It does say in the description it's 600ft but can't see where they get their prices from,somehow I can't see anyone paying this but going by what some pay for film's these days you never know, Mark [Wink]

£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]
