Jan, if you're interested, I see Derann have just listed a mint copy of "Goldfinger" on their latest used film list. £299.00.

Interested?? Rob, my heart skipped two beats when I saw GOLDFINGER on the list. [Big Grin] And thanks for letting me know, you're the third person to do so - unfortunately this time around it's simply too expensive [Frown] And did you know the movie was on the previous sales list as well? Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks it's a tad bit overpriced - although I certainly see the value of a "mint Kodak pre-stripe print." Which only makes it all the more painful to have to let it go, arrgh! [Mad]

But my day will come... I know my day will come.

[Cool]

£299 for "Goldfinger" is not at all unreasonable... In 16mm you'd pay a lot more than that for a mint print...

Seems to me that if you want a film badly enough, the price, as long as it's not way out of line, shouldn't really be an issue...

You're kind of right there - guess it's just I simply have to be careful with money these days! However I didn't necessarily mean to say the price was unreasonable.

Another thing is that the exchange rate from GBP to USD really sucks right now. Earlier this year it seemed much better.

Even now I'm struggling with myself, and credit cards are all too tempting... [Eek!]

Hmm...

I guess many years of film collecting has taught me that if something high on my want list comes up for sale -- grab it. You never know when another one will come around (if ever)...

I've made that mistake a couple of times (not buying something) and I've always regretted it...

As for being able to afford it -- that's a general problem with any hobby -- the good stuff is always going to be expensive, and you have to budget for it...

I see your point. (And I regret not going for Goldfinger when Derann had a print of it for 139 pounds!) [Smile]

Nope, wasn't me... I wish! [Frown]

To make it worse we've just had some more unexpected bills come in (insurance and medical). Such is life...

The picture quality on the Super Eight optical airline prints is far superior to the package movie versions. From what I understand Cubby Broccoli supervised the airline prints and they used the finest pre-print since they were authorized by Eon Productions. I was told they were to be destroyed after use by the airlines but Ray Courts was able to rescue a few for me.

Hi,

there was also a nice flick available, written by Richard Maibaum (writer of some James Bond screenplays).

S+H+E: Security Hazards Expert (1980)

Hi Michael:

I think I read on the Thunderball leader that the print was either struck in 1983 or 1985. But, I don't think the stock is LPP "low fade" yet the color is good. It might very well be unmarked LPP and I have assumed the prints are on regular eastman stock all along.

Not familiar with the Maibaum film.

Best, Tom

Tom,

If I'm correct in thinking this,
LPP & Agfa type film stock is shiny
on both the base and emulsion sides
of the film.

Next time you have an opportunity
to check your Bond flicks that you
received from Ray Courts, it may be
revealing to find that you
certainly have a prize in more
ways than one. Mostly due to the
release dates which you
had mentioned: 1983-1985

Michael

Hi Michael:

Yes,indeed the prints are glossy on both sides and unmarked. They must be low fade. I am very happy about this! Thank's for the information!!!

All The Best,

--Tom

Derann also did a 400ft release featuring 3 films a long time ago in a film lab far far away.
