Okay personally as a film lover i dislike watching red or faded prints. Usually i throw them out in time.

I sadly had to throw out my 16mm faded to red print of one of my all time favourite films. I had for years when all the colours were still fresh and new.

A 16mm scope copy of TALES OF TERROR . I did hold on to it for a long time after it had faded.

However it was not so much the red fade that forced me to bin it but that bloody V.S. that attacked it.

The emulsion became so sticky and gooey that it would not even unwind for projection. Also that blasted stench with it gassing out through the film cans . I stored it in my hallway for a while and the whole place was starting to stink of V.S.

So sadly bye bye TALES OF TERROR !
