If you talk the feature, I will miss out on that joy :-(

I've seen the 400' version about 5 times the past month or so, if that counts :-)

And it will be more

I watched the feature once in 2012, and the digest twice (once for me, once with audience). Its great when you don't have time to watch the whole movie. I sometimes will watch just the second half of the digest, just for the edited death-star battle. That scene never gets old, even if its on the faded-side.

I first saw STAR WARS in 1977. I was 6 years old. I will never get tired of watching this movie.

Nostalgia for the original trilogy hits me twice a year...during the Summer and the holidays.

I have the 2x400' of both SW and Empire and they are very prized. I screened them about twice last Summer. Certainly I will be screening them in the next week or so.

And one day I will absolutely own a full length print of at least one of the three.

Merry Christmas!
btw...New Zealand has reported that the end of the world has not occurred.

I got few months ago again the Derann full feature (german dubbed in Stereo). I had in the past another one and also a 16mm print and I´m very happy that I found this near mint perfect quality print.
I screened it immediately and it was a big fun.
I think I will screen it again next time.

I can't remember the last time I watched the feature, but it must
be over ten years ago.I must make the effort,but I always get
sidetracked by something else.

Does Empire Strikes Back count? I believe I watched Star Wars this year but don't remember. For sure last year. I watched it in German first, then after recorded in English then I watched another print then even another print. So for sure in all I watched it 4 times last year.

I Watched my ultimate cut-down once, sold the Derann version, and screened the last reel of the film in thirty-five many times.

We ran all three Star Wars features sometime last month. I think I even ran my second Star Wars feature earlier in the year just to check it was still okay.

Oh, good to know, I was not aware of neither Return or Sith

Guess those are even more rare than Star Wars and Empire?

Vidar,

Star Wars (eps 4) was printed more because it is more popular (it is also shown on imdb ratings).

Although Star Wars is circulated more but the price is still above the Empire due to that popularity.

You know, the funny thing is, I haven't actually sat down this and watched the whole feature all the way through!

I have watched, numerous times ....

1. Marketing films STAR WARS digest part 2 AGFA film stock and absolutely gorgeous to look at, even after 35 or so years!

2. Ken Films STAR WARS part 2 scope digest. I'm still stunned that the color hasn't faded a bit (every copy of this I have seen for sale on ebay has always been faded to a greater or lesser degree). Though the film stock says Eastman (and not LPP) I wonder if this digest actually somehow made it onto a low fade variation of Eastman low fade ans they were playing with different variations on stock before LPP came out.

At any rate, a great little scope digest!

and, though not directly related ...

Marketing Films Empire Strikes Back Part 1. Lovely unfaded print, but with German sound, but hell, we know all the dialogue anyhow, so it's fun to hear it in German! It states "Opti-color" but that's just a name, as it is on Kodak SP film stock. Now whether they treated they're Kodak SP differently in the lab is another matter altogether, but it's certainly a nice print, and the German boxes for the "Empire" digests were cooler!

Nope, not in 2012. If anyone wants to bring their print to my house and help me throw a party in 2013, well then that would be quite something. ;o)

Star Wars was legally released on Super 8 owing to the fact 20th Century Fox owned the rights for UK release. When it came to Empire and Jedi it transpired that Fox did not have exclusive rights to grant a UK Super 8 release hence whey they appeared from other parts of the world.

I think I put the original reviews for all three films from Film For the Collector/Super 8 Film Review up on the reviews page of bfcc.biz.

John- I thought "Jedi" was a legal super 8 release, as well as Star Wars. I know Derann had some sort of deal with Fox to release their films.

Always wondered about Empire though.

Osi-

Owning the prized super 8 Derann scope feature, you've never wathched the whole movie!?!? [Eek!]

Star Wars is by far my most beloved super 8 feature. I own all three now and have watched them this year (2012)...

Star Wars: 5-6 Times
Empire: at least 3
Jedi: At least 2

Love it!
