War and Peace (1966) The Year 1812 4K scan.

Hello All,

Now as some might be aware I am a massive fan of this movie series and I think that the Criterion releases are not as good as they could have been. Now these are no Star Wars with no alterations, but I think this could have benefited from a 4K scan and a higher bitrate. So I am looking for a 35mm or 16mm (if you find a 70mm, i’ll take that too!) Of just one of the four films, if more prints are found i will be happy to try and get these as well. However currently I have only found a scope print of ‘The Year 1812’ the rest are all cropped to 4x3. If there is interest, I would love to scan this work of art.

Money raised so far:

$45 😄

Hey there, thats sound incredible nice for having found any prints regarding this film. First of all what is your goal fro donations? Furthermore have you checked if the picture is cropped from a Scope 1:2,35 version or is there more room on top and bottom in comparison, it would be interesting if its made from a 1:2,20 Scope-print. How long is this version?
Most importantly: Do you want to scan the prints you have ASAP or scan it along with the prints you would like to find in the future?

Hello, we have to raise $810 for this to go through. TO answer your second question, this is a scope print, there is no room. I am not sure how long this is and I would love to scan this soon, but there has not been as much interest as my Temple of Doom 35mm project which has already raised over $200. I would do this as a standalone project, but I would love to scan more of them.
