Hello Desmond,I have seen the "Ten Commandments" on 16mm
advertised on a UK film list some years back,also "Ben Hur"
was advertised in "The Big Reel" as well, together with
"El Cid" on 16mm letterboxed print.I was sorely tempted.So they
are out there.

That's good news... So maybe there is some hope that one day i will own a 16mm print (or even the odd reel) of my 2 most favourite classic films..

Hi Desmond,it might just pay to give Umit a ring in London,
he has a good selection of film on all gauges,his telephone
number is in the dealers list and he is a most helpfull chap.A sure
way of attracting attention for your films is to place a wanted ad
in one of the collectors mags.Best of luck.

Welcome Dave!

Carpenter's THE THING is an excellent film. Never get tired of seeing it.

In 16mm I would like to finally get a print of You'll find Out, with Lorre, Karloff and Lugosi. ..and also , even more elusive...a print of Quatermass 2.....NOT the horrible super 8 edited thing, but the complete film.

In Super 8...Diamonds are Forever and Goldeneye.

Hugh, thankyou for pointing the way to that french cine site, where i picked up a copy of young frankenstein form piccolo in german but i'll dub it back to english when it arrive's.It suffers a bit like the german wittner site in that the micro soft translator will not let you put anything in the basket when you've translated the page!!!!!, so i emailed them an got a reply in less than a day and were very helpful, now thats good common buisiness sense at work. Great ,thanks again.

No problem Paul,they get some nice stuff,but are very pricey,
having said that,they are very helpful and on the short film
promo for the shop,the female partner is a babe.Did you check all
the various outlets on their menu's?
