I know the feature exists on Super 8 as well as 16mm, but is there a digest in existence?

I'd be interested in the full feature depending on pricing on either format, and even if someone has a faded print kicking around.

Thanks!

Greg,

The Kempski feature print in scope is stunning. I know only of the Derann "America" excerpt, also in scope.

There's also a Derann 400 Foot 'scope extract called "West Side Story".

It has:

"Officer Krupke"
"I Feel Pretty"
"Tonight"

(Steven gave it to me for Christmas about 12 years ago!)

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

My digest contains „Maria“ & „America“,
but „America“ contains a jump which is not included in my Kempski feature.
The full feature is available from time to time

I still have both of those Derann 400 foot scope musical numbers extracts.
I have not viewed them for sometime now. If my memory is correct one of them looks a bit softer than the other and the sound quality is not so good. [Smile]

Thanks everyone. I'll be keeping an eye out for these on eBay and wherever else I can come across them.

Dave is right about the 400 Foot West Side Story digest, the "Officer Krupke" sequence is a little bit soft: not so much that it's terrible, just enough that when you focus, you never quite reach that point where it's really good. Sound is excellent on mine, good thing too: there are some great songs.

The 200 footer "America" (-which begins with "Maria") is excellent. Mine has a slight mark center of screen at the bottom during "Maria": it's forgivable.

There's also an "extra-long" trailer in scope listed in Derann's catalogs.
