Hello everyone. I was told this is the place to go to get an idea of what I may have.
Short Version:

My grandfather was in WWII in 45-48 well tale end of it. He was station on a carrier in or outside of Guam. He left to me a tin box containing 8mm films of Pin Ups...the one in particular is a YOUNG Betty Page.. 4 1/2 mins long, cut off..of her in an Indian headdress and topless.. Now, most "Betty Page" enthusiasts say it doesnt exist...must be someone else..then I had a fella (collector) from California offer me a grand.. I was told not to sell it for that..if it was really her (AND IT IS) that the film is worth a lot more. This film would put Betty at 18/19/20 years old.

Anyway, I want to sell it for what it is worth if anything to the right person. I am 33, I have full custody of my 8 yr old lil girl and I am looking at our first home here in NY.. I want to sell 8mm of Betty, and a few other pin ups in this as well... so I can have a nice down payment on my mortgage. Truth!

The film is not oranged or discolored..very good condition

If anyone, ANYONE could please help me..send me in the right direction.. me and my lil one WILL GREATLY appreciate it!

p.s.- Hugh Hefner, and his secretary both contacted me a few years back after I inquired to Hugh about his collecting.. howevr, he does not collect 8MM.. odd, but true.

email me at 1854dream@gmail.com if you ladies or gents could help me out in a desperate time.


Jimmy Baker!

4 1/2 mins long, cut off.
Does "cut off" mean it is not complete?
