I tried to sell six magazines on ebay for what I thought might be $200. Only one sold, for twenty dollars. They were the first issues of Blue magazine if you are wondering. I thought if I did ok from the ebay sales, then I could justify buying three dvds that I really want.
First is The Plank. I did not know there were two versions. A bit of net searching was an education. The first one was a movie made in the 1950s starring Eric Sykes. The second one was a made for tv version also starring Eric Sykes but with Arthur Lowe.
The latter is the one I want because it is the one I know.
Sticking with the silent theme, the other two are Jacques Tati films.
Monsieur Hulot's Holiday and Mon Oncle. I have them all on video tape, but I want to see them bright and clear.
I found them all on the net after some serious searching.
Problems though, apart from cost.
The The Plank (tv) movie I could only find on video. Phhh. It will deteriorate quickly and not good clear copy anyway.
There is no guarantee that the the Jacques Tati movies will have the minimalist French sound track.
Biggest problem though, I don't actually have a dvd player. (For the integrity of the post, you will discount the pc dvd player)
It is my birthday tomorrow. (big grin)
