Interested in buying vintage 16mm and R8mm porn films.

PostTue Aug 22, 2017 9:52 am

Interested in buying vintage 16mm and BW R8mm porn films. I prefer 16mm, but if it is interesting and in decent shape will consider BW R8mm. Generally not interested in S8mm, unless it is something special.

I am not interested in garden variety 1970's color porno films like Swedish, Denmark or US made like you find on VHS and DVD.

I generally like black and white only, unless it is something special or Kodachrome.

Time frame of collection is from the very beginnings...1920's up to 1960's or so.

Am not interested in full length / multi reel theatre movies. (No room, no big budget to buy or scan.)

I am not interested in films that have a large amount of physical damage from VS. Films that have a light to moderate VS damage are considerable. If you are not sure, run them by me.

Why do I collect old porn?

Someone has to work on it before they all turn into vinegar. It is relatively cheap to do. (Films can be had for $15 to $35 on average.) I like the subject matter. Usually not a copyright issue to put online.

What are my goals?

Basic restoration of film stock, cleaning, repairs, leaders, etc. Then frame by frame 2K scanning before they are all gone. No frame by frame restoration to speak of unless the lotto cooperates.

Then put the digital offspring out for free downloading as a public service or on hi res video DVD as a donation for special collection libraries or institutions that may be interested.

Here is one I rescued from the trash that had been in a hurricane in Florida. It is rare sound vintage stag film.

Prescription for Love

See back up link at end of post. YouTube removed the film.

Here is some of the dirt on the film...

If you have already digitized your porn films on DVD and want to add them to my archive, I accept donations of decent resolution digital material that fits the scope of the collection.

PM me if you got something to get rid of.

I'm not just all about old porn, I also buy interesting short subject films like these:

I don't buy trailers or commercials.

Hi.
I have 10 16mm porn movies that are in early stages of VS.
A few have shrink damage on the 1st several feet, but look okay after that.
Titles include A Jazz Jag, Crazy Cat House, A Trip to Pleasure Island (2 reels), The Star Pupil, The Modern Magician, The Busy Lesbian Club, Motel Moderne, G.I. Joe Returns Home, Three Pals, and English Tragedy.
My guess is that these are pretty rare, and I'd like to save them from further damage.
Any info you can provide would be appreciated.

Hi Roger,

Get a book called Dirty Movies: An Illustrated History of the Stag Film It has an index in the back with dates of many of the films. You can pick it up used on eBay pretty cheap.

If you don't want to sell them, store them in archival vented film cans or in cardboard boxes or paper envelopes so the films can breath. Also check out Vitafilm treatment.
