Theres a kind bloke on this site attempting to restore IF. I'd certainly be interested in this film as well, given its a pesudo-sequel of sorts.
I don’t know if there is more than one fan of this 1973 movie on this forum, but I managed to secure a laserdisc rip from a collector.
The film stars Malcom McDowell as a coffee salesman who gets caught up in a string of unpredictable events, with musical interludes by Alan Price. It was directed by Lindsay Anderson known for the cult films, “If…” and “Britannia Hospital”
In any case, it was only released on VHS and laserdisc, both which are extremely rare to come by. As far as I know, there are no plans for a DVD release.
The copy I have in question squeezes an entire 3 hour movie onto one single layer DVD. I had no idea DVD compression could do that. From what the guy told me, he just plugged his Pioneer LD player into a DVD recorder and recorded it in real time. You would expect pretty crappy quality, and it probably will look terrible on a computer monitor or a Hi-Def television, but on a regular TV it looks fine. In any case it looks better than the Divix VHS rip floating around. Plus it’s in matted widescreen.
Anyway, I know I had nothing to do with the transfer or preservation, but I thought this thread was appropriate for this website.
What’s the internal temperature of a TaunTaun? Luke warm.
