This 1976 set is one of the most recent sets I've added to my collection.

Here's a Give-A-Show Projector set produced in the United Kingdom by Chad Valley! This is mostly the same as the American version produced by Kenner, but there were some changes! If you've been checking out the Give-A-Show Blog, I posted some videos there a number of months ago featuring the slides that were different -- and I'm not really planning on posting those here on Give-A-Show Fridays!

I don't know if I'll ever be able to add the above two sets to my collection -- apparently they're extremely rare (even compared to the first releases from the 1960s!)... the only time I see them is the same copies being offered by the same guy, for several hundred dollars each!!!! You'd think by now, someone would have come across some opened boxes...

Moving on, here's the Italian poster for the Golden Voyage of Sinbad!

Here's where I try to get more hits from Google by mentioning that the above photo features Caroline Munro in a tight-fitting top with lots of cleavage...

I'm sure anyone who found this post based on that is disappointed by the above photo, though...

  1. I was able to say 'Hang on, that image from Five Million Years to Earth is from Quatermass and the Pit!' then i remembered that for some reason, the Quatermass Series was pretty unknown in the US so this Film remake of the third Serial was renamed 'Five Million Years to Earth' (which makes very little sense) for some reason...

    I must say that Andrew Keir did a good job as Proffessor Quatermass, and reprised his role for the audio-part Documentary 'The Quatermass Memoirs'.

  2. I recall seeing Golden Voyage of Sinbad in the theaters as a kid... I think the sight of Ms. Munroe triggered early puberty!

  4. Jon,
    You missed out on two more opportunies:
    1. Golden Voyage of Sinbad was written by Brian Clemens.
    2. It also starred Tom Baker (as the villain, Koura).
    Maybe that will help!
