|Flower Drum Song (1961) 1 x 120m
||An early Universal 8 release running just over 19 minutes. This has 3 musical numbers from the film in it: I Enjoy Being A Girl, Love Look Away & Sunday. The colour quality & image of this release was never brilliant and this copy is pretty much par for the course. Good condition and acceptable image. In original Universal 8 packagaing.
|Sporting Highlights Of 1976 1 x 60m
||The image is reasonably sharp on this with coarse grain; the colour has a sepia bias. Sound is okay but in 2 or 3 places there is a brief dropout for a split second. Its in its original box and in good condition.
|How The West Was Won (1962) 1 x 120m
||Selected scenes from the MGM/Cinerama epic Western. Print is in good condition in original bookform package (which has some wear to edges etc.). These MGM Super 8 releases were never very sharp and colour and contrast levels were not brilliant on them. This may have some reddening to the image but there are blues evident. Its in good condition. This contains the exciting bandit/train chase sequence.
Meteor (1979) 1 x 120m
|Enjoyable selected scenes edition from Ken Films (running at 17 minutes) of the American International Films Disaster movie. Colour still looks okay on this and it has a good contrast range, image sharpness is okay. The soundtrack is fine. This is in original plastic bookform container which has a little wear to corners and edges.
|Gigi (1958) 1 x 120m
||Nice selected scenes reel from Vincent Minnelli's MGM musical. Sound good, slightly soft definition; colour is still quite good. Condition is okay, a few very light scratches. In plain card box.
|The Count (1916) - 1 x 120m B/W Silent||Although taken from worn master material this is good Blachawk print of this classic Chaplin comedy; superior to other 8mm releases of the same title. Print is in good condition and is in original (slightly worn) packaging. Running time at 20 f.p.s. is about 20 minutes.||£11.50|
|The Glass Mountain (1949) - 1 x 120m B/W||Selected scenes edition from Walton Films of the romantic drama The Glass Mountain. About 18 minutes running time.

Running time is about 18 minutes. In a plastic library case.||£11.50|
|Craig's Wife (1936) - 1 x 120m B/W||Rosalind Russell stars in this drama based on a successful Broadway play. A good black and white print - perhaps a bit dense in places. Like the other early Columbia releases this has a running time of 19/20 minutes. The print and original package are in very good/as new condition.||£11.50|
|An Evening With lady and the Tramp (1955) - 1 x 60m
