As a bit of fun, God forbid it doesn't happen, okay, everyone is
safe outsde,your film collection is in jeopardy, which films would you save, excluding Family stuff, Three 16mm, Five 8mm or
one 35mm because of the size. Have Fun.This includes Doug & Brad. As Dominique reminds me, 2x 9.5
Hee, Hee, Hee.

I think I would have to go for 16mm as I don't have so many, and I have some pretty old ones (1929).
20 years ago I would have rescued some of my record collection instead, now I hardly listen to it.

Hugh you ask a very tricky question my friend…
It could be my favourite 35mm nitrate print or perhaps a 16mm feature of Bela Lugosi but must not be tempted with such excellent distractions so will go for the 5 super 8 films as follows..

Derann: Ukelele Man (my first short from them)
Buck Museum: Lights out and stars appear
Derann: Bugsy Malone
Perrys Movies: Movie Man
Collectors Club: Carry on Doctor (Which I currently own the record for projecting the most in 2013)

If I could twist your arm Hugh to include a trailer it would have to be Real Images ED WOOD.

I think if the house caught fire, I would be more interested in rescuing old photos and war medals, and some antique books if time permitted.

I never thought of my Super 8 collection as having much value, as the films were produced in large numbers.

Some in large numbers yes, but so many have been chewed up by lesser home projectionists making remaining good prints that much rarer, hence increasing value. Off to watch Carry on Doctor for the 10th time in 2013!

Lee, the bulk of my collection have not been projected more than twice, and I am talking about prints over 30 years old.I really need to start watching them again this Autumn/Winter.

Time has made them valuable because they are no longer available, but at the time when you spent £100 on a B&W feature, it would have been worth little if you wanted to sell it on.
