Soylent Green (interesting find)
« on: November 05, 2010, 03:33:50 AM »

While on the job in an old Television studio...  waiting for my test equipment to warm up I wandered about.  I found an old store room with celluloid reels of tv shows and movies.  Not sure how it used to be done back in the day but one that truly piqued my interest was a Soylent Green box with three (or four) reels of film in a cardboard box from MGM.  Will be back there tomorrow and see what other info I can get about it but it looks like the film size of the safety or such films we'd be forced to watch in junior high.  Anyone have a clue as to the value of something like that?

I think stuff like this can't be expressed in real money. Just the historic value might be enorm. Stuff like this has to be kept in proper spaces and not just a storeage closet.

It's Soylent Green Starring Charlton Heston.  (in the pic)

BTW it's a 16mm film roll.

I don't have it in my possession yet.  I'll be asking the engineer if I can though.
