@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!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Disne y-Snow-White-Movie-Film-Cell-Actually-Used-in-theater-Vintage-from-Japan/223706458262?_trksid=p2485497.m4902.l9144

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.”
