Anybody know who Maritz Labs printed super 8 prints for? I have a print with the name on a leader and the color is not to bad.

I think a lot of the Ken & M.G.M. films were printed at Maritz.

When 8mm was very popular many titles like "Superman" had many negs made and farmed out to different labs to print, as each lab had to print there contract quota of each title, so when there was a popular title other labs were used, that's why (especially the 3x400' version) the prints of "Superman" vary so much, as each lab might use different stock, fixative etc., thus the variations in quality.
