All film gauges, heh?

OK, here goes:
I'm looking for rollercoaster footage (super 8 and 16mm)

- "RollerCoaster" (Universal - 1977 - starring George Segal and Timothy Bottoms) preferably scope but flat will do. I know there are some 16mm prints out there...

[edit mode] Found it! (see below)... [Smile] [/edit mode]

- Last reel or final scene of "Abbott & Costello in Hollywood" (mad pursuit/fight on a roller coaster)

- Laurel and Hardy (don't know if this is a short or a scene from a feature), featuring a bus finishing its course on a coaster.

[edit mode] I managed to identify this one. It would be the final scene of "The Dancing Masters" [/edit mode]

- "America Screams", rollercoaster documentary shot in the late 70s, hosted by Vincent price.

Anybody can help?

(PS: I already have "Rollercoaster Rabbit" as well as some shorts filmed on the Blackpool coasters... Not looking for films with just a glimpse of a ride).

No small feat but, finally, managed to snatch "RollerCoaster" from Derann's used list. Adapted Scope (so my quest for the ultimate print is still on) but better than nothing.

Hey Mark, which digest did you buy?
It's nice to be able to finally purchase something you've been searching for a long time. [Smile]
