On February 7th 2006, Paul Daniels purchased a vhs tape of the 1930s Boris Karloff film Invisible Menace. The film also stars Eddie Craven and Marie Wilson. The auction ended early because Paul used the 'Buy It Now' button to secure the tape for his viewing pleasure. He paid $13.99 (approximately £7.58) for it.
In a separate auction from the same seller he also bought a vhs tape of the horror film Flying Serpent starring George Zucco. Paul clearly likes old horror films! This film is from 1946 and is described by the seller as PRC's best horror film next to Bela Lugosi's Devil Bat. It co-stars Henry Hall and Terry Frost. Confusingly it then says that it is an unofficial remake of the Bela Lugosi film Devil Bat albeit one in which the monster is now a scaly flying serpent!
In any case Paul paid $9.99 for it and again did so using the 'Buy It Now' button.
Paul was clearly happy with the transactions because he left identical feedback for both of them: "Very good. Thank you." The seller, moonman1702, was obviously equally thrilled as he too left identical feedback for both transactions saying, "Valued Repeat Customer! Fast Pay! Good Communication! Smooth Transaction! AAAA++" (That's 4 As and 2 pluses!)
On the same day Paul won another auction from another seller. It was another horror film but this time on DVD.
It is a DVD about a 200 foot, fire eating turtle of all things! It is called Gammera the Invincible.
It stars Brian Donlevy and Albert Dekker and was directed by Noriaki Yuasa. Paul ended the auction early by utilising the 'Buy It Now' option once more and at only $4.75 (approx £2.58) I'm not surprised. You can't argue with that.
"When a plane carrying an atomic bomb crashes over the Arctic Ocean, the explosion unleashes Gamera, a 200 foot fire-eating turtle. He is hungry for a city and not about to be stopped."
Paul left positive ebay feedback saying: 'Very good. Thank you.'
The seller, moviemarz left positive feedback for Paul also saying: 'Thank you for an easy, pleasant transaction. Excellent buyer. A++++++.' (That's 1 A and 6 pluses)
I think Paul is going to enjoy watching his vhs tapes and his DVD. Not a lot!
