Default FILM RESTORATION THREAD - rumours and confirmation

i don't know about anyone else but i'm a sucker for articles on film restoration or finds of lost film/TV.

so i thought i'd start this thread for anyone to post stuff about anything that is reported or rumoured to being restored. crowd funding of restoration projects could also be posted here. it also gives a heads up for future potential dvd/bluray releases.

here's starter. a lot of us may remember this movie from our younger days

According to 'Mr Worzel Gummidge' on Twitter...

"With the original #WorzelGummidge films thought lost for decades, the find includes pristine 16mm negatives for all 30 half-hour episodes, plus the double-length Christmas special, with the majority of the episodes surviving as original camera negatives…

Worzel Book author @stuart_manning, BBC Radio producer @RichardLatto and archive film expert @PaulVanezis confirmed the find back in May this year. With #WorzelGummidge’s 40th anniversary in 2019 fast approaching, we hope a new audience will soon be able to enjoy these films…

Look out for news about more exciting Worzel archive finds in the coming months… There's more to come!"

Unseen Morecambe and Wise drink-drive advert unearthed 50 years on in 'incredible comedy find' | Daily Mail Online

"In the film Morecambe is flinging things all around his room looking for his car keys when Wise enters the room and asks him 'What are you looking for?'


Morecambe replies he is looking for his car keys- to which an exasperated Wise says 'you can't do that.'

Wise adds: 'Do you know what you'll be doing at that party?'

Outlining the shape of a woman with his hands, Morecambe replies: 'Looking for a nice little blond.'

Wise adds: 'And what else?' Morecambe responds: 'Well, that all depends on the nice little blond, doesn't it?'

Wise adds: 'What else do you expect to be doing apart from looking at girls?'

Morecambe finally clocks on and gives Wise the thumbs up and brings an imaginary drink up to his lips.


He agrees that he will indeed be drinking, which prompts Wise to say: 'I knew you were wise.'

Morecambe quickly corrects him: 'No, I'm Morecambe. Aren't I?'

He then turns to the camera, to deliver the message: 'If you want to be wise, don't drive if you've been drinking.'"

Lost Sid James interview rediscovered | BBC News

"An interview with Carry On legend Sid James has been recovered after 42 years sitting in a loft.

It is the last-known recording of the comedy star, and thought to have been recorded days before he died on stage during a UK theatre tour."
