Did I tell you about the time I chatted to both Stella Stevens and Carol Lynley about The Poseidon Adventure? Did I mention they both signed my Poseidon Adventure poster?

The 400ft Super 8 is one of the best Ken put out.

That is so cool, David. They are both very nice ladies. Carol Lynley told me story about Irwin Allen's original idea for a sequel. The six survivors are sent to Vienna to take part in the official inquiry regarding the Poseidon disaster. They take a train to get there. The train crashes in a tunnel and the survivors have to find a way out. Quite a different story compared to what became "Beyond The Poseidon Adventure".

Patrick, you have a 16mm print?! Is it scope? Flat? Faded? How much do you want for it? [Smile]

Here is a video of my "Poseidon Adventure" collection.

Enjoy!

Hi Mark Barton:

You sold the 16mm print of "The Poseidon Adventure" to me here in the States on late Fugi. I continue to treasure it. I have the Blu Ray but like real film the best!

How are you doing? Let me know.

Best, Tom Pennock

My buddy Mike and I both love puns, the more tragic the better.

Some years ago when the Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park, California, closed its doors, I made several farewell visits. Mike, being a native of Southern California, had been there many times himself. In a phone conversation, he asked me what I thought of the old place.

“I love it,” I told him, “but they do have some fairly ancient displays in there. They’ve got a diorama of The Poseidon Adventure that looks like it’s been there since 1972.”

“Yeah,” he deadpanned, “I guess you could say they don’t have a lot of turnover.”

The game was on! “Don’t get me wrong, Mike. I loved it. You might even say it turned my world upside down.”

“You sound like you really flipped over it.”

We were both laughing like fools at this point. Then I told him,

“Yeah, but they really should have depicted that scene right after Stella Stevens dies, when Ernest Borgnine starts weeping and bawling his eyes out. Ask me why.”

I sensed a certain hesitance on his end. “Why?”

“Mike... there’s got to be a mourning actor.”

True story.

What a movie. The Blu-ray is a nice transfer, plus I finally found a 400ft last year with very good colour and OB. I wonder if good scope 16mm prints still exist?
