I guess for the most part Panavision keeps all their proprietary Panavision rental pieces. There are exceptions, but few. I know a guy that had one of the PSRs used on Star Wars. Had a pic with Lucas sitting next to it. Sold to a collector for a large sum.
I hope Mr. Tarantino does a good job, I also love a good Western. The last one I saw that felt right was "The Unforgiven." Though it had its problems I liked Brando's "One Eyed Jacks" quite a bit (shot in VistaVision). The first print I saw of it was 16mm at college, so I'm sure the images were greatly compromised (probably an academy aspect print). The last version I saw was a terrible transfer from a print that was panned and scanned- awful! It was shot on the central coast of California; I would love to see a good version.

Very interesting. Nice to see 65mm put through a camera these days. Even using 1960's lenses too, I would have thought that these lenses would have been sold off to a collector obviously somebody has serviced them before put up for rental. I do like the old lenses even going back to the 1940's B/W days, they really had a special look.
I really don't think they can make a good cowboy film these days, they give it a modern slant with modern acting skills and today's morals which is out of keeping with the ways of the 1870's
Western standards. The big names are gone now and you have to be a big star to carry a big film. But I can't wait to see it.
