My pick for the best walt Disney Home Movie digest is the 200ft "Dumbo" digest, which really gives you the very best moments, (well, elephants on parade is good as well, but I don't think that they released that on super 8 as a digest).

Another reason for this assessment is that this was an earlier super 8 digest release and this was before they started doing those "generic" titles and instead, put some really nice work on these titles and this was one of the best looking jobs on the title cards.

You're thoughts, ladies and gentlemen?

Osi - Without doubt, my favourite MUST be the first Disney I ever bought.

"Match of The Century" from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

My first copy bought in the 1970's was black and white silent with subtitles,bought from a mail order company in the UK called "Mailmaster Films". Remember them anybody? It then had the honour of being the first 200' Colour Sound film, and first film that I ever bought at my first ever Blackpool convention in the late 80's / early 90's. To suddenly see it in glorious colour and to HEAR it for the first time was nearly as exciting as walking into that room at the Cliffs Hotel ( where it was held in those days) and seeing more films for sale in one place than I had ever done in my life!

Not really a digest, but the best sequence from the film.

If we can stretch the category to include extracts, mine would be:

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