It's not my auction ...


Good starting bid on it. I asked the seller if he could put up some screenshots of the actual print though, as, there ARE some really bad bluish prints circulating out there, so bad that they are nearly unwatchable, so I hope that it's a good color print.

If I remember correctly, the Derann prints were struck from a widescreen cropped negative which ruins the composition of many scenes. And the Main Titles are cut off as well. I saw this version when it was released to theaters and it was disheartening. Fortunately the 16mm rental prints are not from that negative.

If my memory serves me correctly quite a lot of Disney re-issue
cinema releases on 35mm film were cropped for widescreen.

The reason being that most 35mm Cinema Projectors were using
the 1.85:1 aperture plates in the gate as the "norm".

Very view sites save those "Art House" ones who were more purists were actually bothering to project the other ratios and prints
as they were meant to be seen except of course the " Scope " ratios.

I picked up a print from this seller recently and it was in great shape. He isn't a collector.. "selling for a friend," but they are nice prints.
