Three hours long? Must be that really, really thin film stock.

This 16mm film offering is mind-boggling in its strangeness. Is the title "Ira Sleeps Over Children"? "Children Fear New Jersey"? Be sure to check out the list of irresistible highlights the seller has put together, beginning with the qualifying statement, "I like New Jersey."

I've purchased from this fine, trustworthy seller before, but he made a slight mistake in this listing.

"BOTTLE STAR" ??? *laughs out loud* I think I see where Kevin's "pi**ed" comment came from. [Big Grin]

And then the seller's comment... "Hi, I watched the movie to deside on the color, It is hard to deside since the movie all in space and spaceship"... I suppose he could always claim that things are supposed to be red since they take place in an infrared-starlight region of space...har, har.... [Wink]

Search for this seller on Ebay

vitorio15

And look at his product pages. He's using his girlfriend's assets in order to promote his items...

US$ 1800 for a girlie movie and moreover it is a reserve auction. Should be a joke.

US$ 1800 for a sex movie

200ft and runs for 20 minutes, eh? They probably printed every second frame only, to get the speed down to 12fps during projection [Wink]

Very unusual way in titling the list.

strange title

The selller deliberatly abbreviate the titles. So unless you click on the list, you would not know what films are being offered. Funny though!

please read this notice:

efa = Escape from the Astragad
was = World War 1 At Sea
motc = Match of the Century

Ziggy Stardust on Ebay

If you happen to buy it, I'll gladly take a 10% finder's fee!!

Scott,

That's only $1,740.00 per minute!

Here's one that's a shock to me. As far as I know, UA never released anything in color or sound!
