Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 - MKV (Released)
Time

Yes, we are moving to theatrically sync all three films from this point forward. 4K77 2.0 and 4K80 1.0 will include all available frames even if they were missing from the NTSC (or PAL or both) GOUT versions.

Presumably, however, we will continue to ensure that the Star Wars logo appears on frame 689 as it does on the GOUT, so that all the audio tracks still have the same starting point.

4K77 - Released
Time

It came on 2 reels. The telecine wobble is just as bad on our copy too, because that’s how it was printed. I had stabilized the whole film to the sprocket holes, but when I went to watch it the film still wobbled all over the place:

So now I’m going shot by shot, stabilizing to the picture which takes a little longer.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the print we borrowed for scanning was in very good shape. There was a fair amount of warping which made it twist and turn in the film gate, causing distortion and “focus breathing” too, but it’s still fun to watch.

will there be release of the SPFX: making of the empire strikes back too?

Yes, I’m working on that right now actually. It will be a bonus feature with 4K80.

That looks like a two-color print, as opposed to a faded full-color film.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but is there much you can do with that sort of film? Reds and skintones should be easy to fix, but either the green or blue is missing or maybe even mixed together?

That’s after some color correction - it is faded to pink:

Based on the provided info on 4K77’s webpage, 97% of the film comes from a Spanish print. If that’s accruate, I assume the other 3% is for the opening scrawl, end credits, and damaged frames?

I’m unsure about the audio source for the SSE, but is all the audio for 4K77 from the GOUT or does is some from prints?

That’s incorrect. Waht is says on the webpage is that “97% of project 4K77 is from a single, original 1977 35mm Technicolor release print”, the other 3% is a mix of Spanish LPP, a second British IB Technicolor print, a 97 Special Edition print and 2011 Bluray (for any frames that were missing from all prints at the reel changes).

Audio is from Harmy’s Despecialized, which is mostly laserdisc sourced. All of the print audio is incomplete since there are frames missing throughout, and the LPP audio is obviously in Spanish.

Info: 35mm Italian 1997 SE of A New Hope - for sale on eBay

It’s been relisted

However the description says it is the whole movie but says it is only two reels. This is obviously not true, the movie is 6 reels.

It’s on 2 x 6000 foot reels. That’s the whole film. (Normally 6 x 2000’ reels)

Goldeneye - 35mm Scan and Preservation (a WIP)
Time

alexp120 said:

This thread is about the scanning of a theatrical release print, so, this version would be the theatrical cut.

I know of at least one cut that was made on all the British prints: the scene in Cuba after the plane crash where the Xenia slides down the rope and attacks Bond, the “good” girl tries to intervene and is grabbed by the bad girl and told to “wait your turn” before being pushed to the ground. That 10 seconds or so is not in any of the British prints. It is however in this print, so I believe this is the uncut version.

Highlander: original US theatrical version - to preserve (Released)

I don’t know if this would be of any help, but I caught Highlander on TV and it was the theatrical cut, in widescreen and HD. It also has the shot of the cop spilling coffee on himself, and presumably has the unaltered effects shots at the end.

Cool. Did you record it? If not, what channel was it on and is it going to be on again anytime soon?
