Cinderella (1950) 35mm Preservation opportunity! (a WIP) — Page 3

Author

The new “Anniversary Edition/Signature Collection” Blu-Ray has been released and for our disappointment it’s the same awful transfer we had in the 2005 and 2012 dvd/blu-ray, same colors, same DNRed picture, same deleted lines, same deleted pieces of score… It’s just a pointless release and a lost opportunity to fix their mistakes.
Disney was aware of the awful state of this restoration and they did nothing, again.
I’m really mad at them I’m never buying a single Disney Blu-Ray or DVD. We deserve to see the original film as it was created in 1950, not to be stuck with the butchered version disastrously remastered in 2005.
I hope someday we will see this 35mm version, maybe not the most faithful source but yet, miles better than any other release this movie has ever had.

Is this still available, if so put me down for £5, maybe £5 for Pinocchio as well.

Is this still active? I’ll gladly contribute $25.

Wow! This 35mm preservation will bring back the original intended colours and right now we are stuck with the outdated transfer from 2005 with DNR and inaccurate colours.

I have donated in January, after I was promised a release in a few weeks, in order to have any possibility of getting a download link, but still no news…and I’m not getting any answer either.

Has anyone received anything? I’m not in any private torrent tracker where the film would be available, but I was promised a way to get it…

All I wish to know is:
Is this waiting normal?
Thanks.

I’m still waiting for things on my end, the scan (along with my print) has been shipped by sea. I didn’t ask for it to be sent that way, but that’s how it was sent.

I didn’t promise people a complete copy of this or that right away, sorry if it’s a bit slow. I should hopefully have another BATB print this year … but again that’s up to the seller and then I have to arrange to get it scanned as well. 😃 It takes time and a lot of expenses which are often out-of-reach.

I should be able to do something from the old scans soon, but they have issues as many people know.
