There's what appears to be a single 400' version (in sound) of ACAO on Ebay. I didn't know Blackhawk issued a digest version of this title. I don't recall Blackhawk issuing sound digests of the L&H features except the tv-edited versions that came with bogus titles like "Do It Yourself" and "Gyp The Gypsies" which Blackhawk released toward the latter part of '79. I know they offered silent versions of the features, but this is an intersting find for only $4.99 US Dollars.

If I remember correctly,Blackhawk released the full version and the streamlined version,missing the Soup to Nuts Footage. I think for a short time,they sold the first reel only. But beware,there was a silent 400 ft version

If this is a 400' version, it wasn't Blackhawk, check what the box or leader has written on it, first - Yes, Sound or Silent of course, but I know a 16 from Rogal Films was issued (sound naturally) - Let's know what the mystery is

I am checking with the seller. From the camera angle, it's hard to tell, but that could be the entire feature (a multi-reel box.)

It's the feature of A Chump at Oxford. She is listing numerous Blackhawks.

I thought the same thing too when I first saw it -- just one reel?
Just another example of people on eBay not knowing what they are selling -- I'm surprised the seller knew enough to look at the label on the side of the box to give the title -- some sellers don't realize that.

BTW, the digest of ACAO is called ALTER EGO, but was never released by Blackhawk. It runs about 25 minutes, and includes a large chunk of the maze scene (which I dislike) at the expense of some of the Lord Paddington footage.

She is listing more stuff--looks like someone's collection. There are scored Chaplins, etc.

Is it possible that this is a Chump at Oxford cover and not the correct film in the box?

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great

There's always a problem with that -- you never know if the film is in the right box. I steer clear of sellers who can't view the film to tell me 1) the condition, and 2) that it is the right film.
