I was looking up Bruce Lee films on Super 8 and found this article:
http://www.viceland.com/blogs/uk-film/2010/01/07/a-speech-from-a-super8-fanatic/

He talks about his print of "Enter the Dragon" on Super 8 that is worth around 3,000.
He says there are only 20 in the world.
Does anyone know the whole story on this?

Don't know the answer..... sorry.

But following the said blog, I found another interesting fact that Umit is on film (not a news but actual commercial film). Here is the link:

He mentions Ray Harryhausen working on King Kong which is not true. Willis O'Brien did KK. Ray worked on Mighty Joe Young. Maybe he got mixed up. Possibly Enter the Dragon feature had a 20 print limit. If he was talking about the 4X400 reels from Columbia that is not true.

I only realised a couple of weeks ago that I've known UMIT for years and years!! He's a great guy - BUT BUT BUT he has a sense of humour which makes most people seem drab! Great character!!!!
Cheers, David E
