One time, I saw on Derann's used list a copy of the slightly edited scope feature of "My Name is Nobody" on super 8. I didn't have any ready cash at the time ...

What I did have was very good condition LP's of some of the Beatles earliest Albums, not mint condition, but pretty darned good ...

I mentioned them to Gary and that handsome lad that he is, said that he would be willing to trade the Beatles Albums, (I think there were four of em) for "My Name is Nobody". We made the trade ...

... and I hope that Gary is enjoying them to this very day. I know that I'm still enjoying that "Nobody" scope feature!

Osi, thats a great feature version of My name is Nobody, ours is still in our collection, not the sharpest of scope prints but it certainly hard to get hold of today.

Tom

That is excellent work. I am a big lover of box art. I make my own boxes for my 800' and 1200' reels. I also make them for others when the film cpmes in the ugly can of nothing at all. I find it is fun and rewarding when it is done. Plus, if you decided to sell the print it will get you a little more money even if it is not original.

Thanks for the compliment. I thought about it. But, it's one thing to do it for yourself, and quite another to do it for somebody else. Plus I couldn't make money on forum members. I enjoy doing it for myself.

Pasquale/Yanis, thanks foy your comments, here is just one more example, and if there are any titles i can help you (or anyone else) with and i have them please let me know. I think i have around 250-300 saved at present.
I always try to use images that are actually in the super 8 version.
This one was done 800ft size as we have both parts of the Holy grail.

Nice artwork, Tom. I only have part one of "Grail" and the trailer.
The original certificate was actually an "A" by the way and then mysteriously altered to a "15" when the system changed.

Hello Everyone!

Just to let you know that I am now happily working as a sales administrator for a local rubber company, following a well earned rest from 35 years at Derann. I still have a fondness for the film business, however and hope to meet lots of familiar faces at Blackpool in November. Mine's a Guinness if you are buying! All for now and thank you for your previous custom plus all the happy
memories

Kindest Regards Always

Gary Brocklehurst

Well done Gary. It's nice to hear that you are back in the land of the "employed".

Working for a rubber company?

I knew you would "bounce back" in the end [Smile]

Did it take you long to "mould yourself" into the job?

I hope your wages are not paid by cheque? Especially the type that "bounce". [Big Grin] [Wink]

Hope to see you at Blackpool. Take care - best wishes to the missus.

Gary - Congratulations on being back in work. I'm sure you can apply your own style of humour to being a man in rubber!
If you're staying in Blackpool over the weekend, please consider booking for the Saturday night dinner for collectors I'm organising at the Savoy!
By the way, I've just made sure that the Collingwood are open that weekend.

Hi All

Thank you for your kind comments

We had a fantastic time on the Isle of Wight in January, staying in Shanklin, with nice weather too

Ged is close to retirement age and will probably not work again, although I am not sure about Steve's position

We are not sure where we will be staying in Blackpool, although it has crossed our mind to take a stall

Please keep in touch!

Kindest Regards

Gary Brocklehurst

A stall would be a great idea,have you load of films to flog then?

Steve,

Ged has taken early retirement, he's on Pension Credit, which is a fanciful way of taking him off the unemployed register.
I've heard that Steve is working in a Supermarket, I see from Gary's post he's got a job (well done), but I have no information about Adrian and the rest of the staff, and I still wonder how my little business is still here and Derann have gone, it's a strange old world.

Nice that Gary is still going to the Blackpool convention. He was the face of Derann for all us export buyers, and seeing him there in November will, I am sure, bring the Derann nostalgia out in full force for a lot of people.
