Get Squirm 200', Twins of Evil 200' and Mission Galactica 2x400'. While I'm at it, Guns for San Sebastian 3x400' and Airport '80 2x400'

If anyone has these at a fair price, please drop me a note

Mission Galactica is rather rare. So if the previous sequel "Battlestar Galactica" is usually sold around $25-$45. If you purcahsed below that, then you are lucky!.

The other rarer U8 two parter are "Hulk", "Blues Brother", and "Xanadu"

I'd pay 50 for Mission Galactica, but not the ones I find on, they are dubbed :-( Want english sound version

How about the Twins and Squirm 200'? Had both of them when I was 11 ... Brought my projector for school a couple of times ... Second time was last time, as the teacher said stop it, when Cushing chopped off the head of the vampire :-)

Hey Vidar-

I used to show Squirm at my high school in the 70's and everyone loved it! I got more objection from the teachers during the Logan's Run 400 footer for the brief nudity. [Eek!]

As for the Squirm 200 foot version, I don't see this for sale very much, but the 400 foot version is somewhat common. I prefer the 200 footer on this one though (see my reveiw in the review section).

Hi Vidar,

the Galactica-Versions from were released by Piccolo Film. So they are in german.

Keep perforated,
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on December 18, 2012, 06:48 AM:
I know they are German versions, I've asked :-)

Now I am really hoping to find these, as these are the last ones I remember for now that I had at 11

Thanks for the input on Squirm too, I'd go for the 400' if that's something I can find ... Not seen on eBay or any of the lists I have searched

BTW: Anyone can do a redub that is perfect? I guess that means if there's a frame missing, it would be impossible, but ... Longshot, I know

I dontbknow for the case of Picollo. But for German UFA many its English movie releases were printed by Ken Films hence the same edit frame by frame.

Maybe German members can share their knowledge here? Because I want to know it too.

Winbert wants english soundtrack on the Star Wars movies? ;-)

Dubbing should be banned in my opinion ... DVD's are okay, since you can keep both (or more) tracks
Posted by Michael Beyer (Member # 1143) on December 18, 2012, 10:49 AM:
Yes, Winbert, UFA took some Ken Films-Titles in their program and edited the sound to german. The cut is the same like the original.

dubbing is okay. I do it, too. F.e. my Disney-Titles. I have a 5 year old daughter. She cannot speak or understand english [Big Grin]
But on the balance track is the original english version.
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on December 18, 2012, 11:37 AM:
I learned english from watching Super 8 ... Better than to dub in my opinion, even for a 5 year old. Have an aquantance, she had a daughter of 3 years and she spoke english quite well. And all learned from TV with english programs.

But you kept the original track, that's a plus :-)

Can't the balance track be used? Since you moved the original track to balance I mean?
