So I've noticed that my digest print of "Airplane" seems a little faded.
Does anyone here have the feature that has all its colors intact? Just curious.

Hey Alan - My Airplane print has perfect color... but I ordered it from the UK so it may be a print done overseas... which is often better color-wise.

My digest is definitely pink. Was the feature by Marketing?

My Airplane! feature (Marketing) still looks pretty good.

Darn! I drew the short straw! [Frown]
But at least I know good prints of this title exist.
Thanks all!

My feature length Airplane! has good color: not perfect, but good.

We've only watched it once so far, but my son and I both got the impression the two Jive scenes aren't there.

Did we both go to the 'fridge at the exact wrong time(s) or has anybody else (not) noticed this?

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

No Mrs.Cleaver? That's one of the best parts and it's not in the 3 parter.

Is the audio optical or magnetic on these?

Most of the marketing full features have either faded or are fading much faster than the 3 x 400 footer. (unfortunately).

Brian is probably right. Quite a few of the Marketing prints overseas were struck (thankfully) on low fade film stock, in most cases, that was agfa.
