I am looking for full feature print of Singin' in the Rain

Ted, good luck with finding a print. I have the Derann print of Singin' In The Rain and it really is a glorious feeling when you project it, very sharp, deep contrast, and fully saturated 'Technicolor'. I have redubbed mine from the DVD which has enhanced mono sound resulting in more 'depth',

There is a lovely Derann print here Ted, if you are able to record it back into English again.

Way over the top price though, this isn't that rare.

Usually I don't comment on film prices but Tom you are spot on with this one over three times the price Ian sold one on here for just last month and a re-record into it's original English sound needed too - my advice would be to wait and I'm sure a more fairly priced one will come along.
Seems to be becoming the norm though - UK Derann prints travelling over the Channel then being offered back at an extortionate profit and in a foreign language.

Have to agree with you Kevin,
Ted, Keep an eye out and hopefully one will come up, i am also looking but realisticly it would have to be under 200.
Ian @ Perry's has just proved that, also CHC had one not too loing ago for 175.

I was interested in CHC's "Singin' in the Rain", too. At that time the film was offered for 130£. But when I contacted Philip Sheard about that print, he said that it wasn't really sharp.

I suspect that it wasn't one of the later Derann prints, however, 130 was still a good price.

I managed to pick up a Derann Print for around £180. I'll let you know how it looks when I get a chance to screen it!
