Looks like Region B only. Amazon will give you $17.35 to sell it to them. First I've noticed they'll give you more than you can buy one for.

That's for giving them New, in the wrapper. For Like New they pay you $2.08.

I reviewed this one "a while" ago: Streets of Fire (1984)

Nicely done. If no one had gotten it, I had some other interesting images ready to go.

Blu-ray available from the Warner Archive. Working on a review now.

I first saw this on a double bill with The Man Who Fell to Earth at a local college film presentation. Kind of a Nicolas Roeg night. Needless to say, it was a long time ago, and I was pretty high.

Time for another shuffle challenge!

All the images are from one film, selected and arranged randomly.

We number them, top to bottom: (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 )

Arrange the numbers in the correct chronological order.

(I'm putting it in a spoiler because it is a big image and the forum software is shrinking it when uploaded as an attachemnt).

Answer:

Spoiler!

Spoiler!

I've attached a smallish version of the correct order. The timestamps in seconds of each image:

8 01778
7 02588
3 02977
9 03329
2 03864
1 05444
6 06039
4 06297
5 07129
