A report from the lab….so we have some new and beautiful screen shots from the recently transferred, “The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann”. Overall, this transfer was very successful. The film looks better than it ever has. The colors have come back to life, and the old VCA version, is virtually unwatchable, when compared to this new HD transfer. Not only was the VCA release butchered, but the color and sound are totally fucked! Anyway, the difference to the film itself and the addition, of all previously cut footage, is reason enough to buy this one. But the truth is that this is our most ambitious project to date, and it has just about everything but the kitchen sink. This will go down as being one of the most spectacular classic adult film packages ever produced, and it looks like this will be ready in late Spring. I will lay out a few of the details below:
*Pamela Mann hard version, uncut, transferred in HD ( all previously deleted footage is intact)
*Pamela Mann soft version, uncut transferred in HD( unique version, never before seen footage)
*Pamela Mann hard trailer
*Full length director commentary with Radley Metzger
*Over 75 original and never before seen slides
*Ephemera Gallery ( news articles, photos, etc)
*Interview with star of film Georgina Spelvin( Georgie)
*Interview with star of film, Eric Edwards ( Frank, the private detective)
*Multiple Documentary Featurettes( Locations, Externals, Life and Times, Music)
*The Deleted Scenes
*Liner note book, written by Benson Hurst, with contributions from our director of music content, as well as another guest writer
Details of the Transfer:
THE PRIVATE AFTERNOONS OF PAMELA MANN was restored using the original 35mm blow-up internegative and is presented in its original theatrical exhibition aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The film was scanned in 2K resolution using a Spirit 2K Datacine and the DaVinci Resolve system was used to perform additional color correction and color matching. The film was then backed up on HDD for DVD authoring. The audio was transferred from the 35mm optical track negative and is presented in its original mono form.
PLEASE NOTE that throughout the film there is occasionally a greenish scratch present in the right-most third of the image. This is an imperfection present in the original negative and could not be removed.
Here are some comparisons between the VCA version of Pamela Mann and the brand new HD transfer from Distribpix/Video-X-Pix.
I hope you enjoy this update and as soon as we have an exact release date, we will post it on the blog.
