I just bought a rare TV show on super 8, and I have no idea as to who released this!

I just got this film and as I expected, it's in black and white but sadly, even with complete leader at the beginning reel, it doesn't state as to who released this on super 8! [Frown]

The quality is only so-so. It was obviously taken from a 16MM print taken from the original color videotape. My slightly informed guess would be that it was released by "Reel Images" (not Steve Osbournes company but the original reel images company from the late 70's/early 80's). it even has those little couple second insertions stating, "place commercial here"!

Here is a link to an actual copy (probably taken from the 16MM black and white from which this super 8 was sourced from) ...


A GREAT cast of wonderful cameos! What is most intresting, is that they even include a number of great "bloopers" from the show on the reel. This was, after all, a show that was totally done LIVE.
