Was looking on ebay the other week at 70's tv series and found that man about the house the movie sells for around the 25 mark. Was tempted to put mine on there to make a nice profit as I bought mine a good 5/6 year ago from play.com for around 6.

Just wondered if other members have any dvd's on their shelves that could be worth a small fortune?

I had a film called trick or treat brought for 1.50 at a car boot and it sold for just under 20 on ebay a year later

I got 400 for a Mark Owen live DVD once. It was a signed one and he only sold a few through his website. They accidently sent me two but told me to keep it. It went into a mental bidding war and people were obsessed with getting it. My whole office were addicted to watching it go up in price.

Also, before the re release, The High Life was pretty rare and I found a site in Australia selling them. I bought up 10 and sold them on amazon for 85 each.

I did the same with a job lot from CDWow for a fiver apiece IIRC. My best price for one copy was 99.

Sold loads of rare stuff over the years with my top prices being for a couple of anime sets that went for 400 and 500 each. Recently bought more than a hundred copies of a DVD for 75p each that sells steadily for 50. For obvious reasons I cannot say what it is!*

I have some of the Disneys that must be pretty rare (certainly theyre long OOP)

Beauty and the Beast SE UK release (2002) with red 'book' packaging
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Platinum Edition R1 (2001) Rare - was very pleased when I got a genuine one
Sergio Leone 'Dollars' Wooden Box Limited Edition (Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More) - Very Rare (think only 5000 were made).

The Heartbreak Kid on DVD can be shifted for 50 easy, but no hurry for the situation's not likely to change for a while.

Unfortunately the value of Disney dvd's has been wiped out by the release of the Blurays and R1 discs are not worth much anyway, mainly because the bootlegs out there (and there are loads) purport to be the R1 releases

I have many dvd's , mainly from the US that are listed on Amazon for anything between 30 to over 100.

I've been selling off my BFI titles over the last 2-3 years once they hit the 40 mark so its gratifying they are being reissued now.

I sold several deleted Dr Who dvd's for between 20 and 40 each to unsuspecting buyers who didn't know the reason the titles were deleted was because they were due to be reissued.

As I found out when trying to sell mine.
I gave up in the end.
Play would often remove sellers but they came back again .
Nobody seemed to find it odd that a seller would have a rare deleted title thats been unavailable for several years new and sealed in multiple numbers for cheap prices.

Snow White was far from being alone.
Always R1 though .
I can't recall exactly but I wonder if it was because the US discs never had the hologram on the covers

I have a copy of The Driller Killer, its from 1979 and was deemed a video nasty. I'm not sure how rare it is nowadays.

The film is 1979 .
The dvd isn't.

As it was passed uncut several years ago its not important anymore.
Its just another dull movie pushed into the spotlight by the morons who instigated the Video Nasty rubbish

Many of the nasties are now uncut in the UK on dvd and at least one film that was banned and then re-released with cuts is now an uncut 15- Contamination.

Still cut are I Spit On your Grave and House On the Edge of the Park although nowhere near as badly as they used to be.

Just as they were over a decade ago both are available uncut from the US and Europe.

New York Ripper is still cut but as that got kicked out of the country without a video release in 1982 its not an official nasty

I think the way to tell if Snow White was genuine was to look at the numbers round the ring in the middle. Mine wasnt new when I bought it on Ebay but seemed in VG condition to me (I got it a few years before the BD came out and when it had been deleted and in the Disney Vault for some time).
