16mm film version of the episode of Password with Betty White hosting while Allen plays from March 27th, 1975 has popped up on eBay.

I'm a total clueless newbie when it comes to this stuff, how easy is it to digitize something like this?

That would depend entirely on the outlet.    You'd have to find a professional who could make a DVD transfer and the rates would vary.

Are you the bidder on this?

This might be the sort of thing to bid collectively on (contributions from several members) if it could insure winning it.       The March 14, 1975 issue is in circulation where Mark Goodson plugs Betty hosting in two weeks so this would be from that week.

If someone with connections for digitizing this wants to organize it, I'm in for contributing.

  • You've won the Yugo GV! Sorry.
We did something similar with a pilot 3 or 4 years ago, Make Your Move.  (The title might be different.  I have effectively erased it from my memory since then.)  With that, I'm in.

  • Uff, 800 tapes to digitize.
OK I'll spill: I'm currently the high bidder. However, I'd be happy to join this community effort. My max bid is set to $175.

I'll chip in as well.  Although I am expecting a bidding war to commence between us and the Paul Williams fan community.
