Richard Sarafian R.I.P. Another one leaves us with only memoires on film.

The Guardian

His films

Although I don't think many of his films appeared on 8mm, one that did was Vanishing Point. For hire only from FDA in the UK.

Yes "Vanishing Point" was available for hire only from FDA their full name Film Distributors Associated. They were the 16mm rental for United Artists & Twentieth Century Fox.

During the peak of super 8mm FDA, along with Columbia/Warner and the Rank film library had a modest selection on 8mm. I think FDA titles were only from Fox though.

Not too sure but I think this was also available from Columbia "Man in the Wilderness"

I hired from all three, and the prints were fantastic.
