Definitely worth a punt on ebay. There will be a market for such things. I got a 8mm cine player from a garage clearance and wanted. A cheap film to see if it still works ok.was surprised to see there was still people selling x rated 8mm cine film. So would think there would be a market for swim clad bathing beauties being judged by bespeckled old men in rain coats.
