On Her Majesty's Secret Service: Piz Gloria Edition (WIP)

While I’m waiting for a computer with the capability to run Blender, I figured I can begin a simpler edit…

…1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. (OHMSS)

I will add a full change list later on, but for now, I will give the film a new (and more consistent) color grade, remove/replace the more out-of-place music cues, clean up odd editing choices (random flash cuts, echos, and useless inserts) and make what I like to call “The James Bond Christmas Special” even better than it already was.

2012 Blu-Ray
1999 SE DVD (if needed)

OHMSS Soundtrack CD
Dr. No Soundtrack CD

Various publicity photos and stills

I won’t be removing many scenes or lines, and the initial version will have to be released in 480p, due to the storage size (I’m a touch stingy with my hard drive, as I don’t have the largest amount of space ever.) and so it won’t look putrid on a standard DVD, but don’t worry, I’ll get around to an HD version someday.

As the man says, this never happened to the other fella.

and I’m not done by a long shot. (still need to log at least 6 more movies, and TV collection.)

How many times have you bought the movies?

My grandparents have a 1991 TV recording of ROTJ the 2000 SE tapes, and the GOUT release of Empire.
I have the 2001 TPM, 2002 AOTC, 2005 ROTS, thin-case GOUT trilogy, 1997 SE tapes, the 2015 steelbooks for the OT, TFA Blu-Ray/DVD combo with Walmart slip, standard DVD releases of TLJ, Solo and TROS, and the Blu-Ray/DVD combo of Rouge One, so if we’re only counting the dupes, I have bought/received the OT 4 times. (the 2000 tapes have been passed on to me because my grandma doesn’t need them anymore thanks to cable TV)
