Hello.
This time I would like to share the 'clean' original 4:3 scale version of CALLING ALL GIRLS video. NO TV logo, NO titles. It starts with the promo clock counter which indicates its release date - July 1st 1982.

It's important to say a couple words about this video. It comes from a VHS tape. Due to some higher generation source it was DISCOLORED. But our greatly talented buddy (Chief Mouse) has managed to restore its color!!! As a result - here you've got the processed 'clean' 4:3 version of "Calling All Girls" promo video. Enjoy!

Well, the colour was taken from another TV broadcast of this promo which Antiden also provided me. That was he best that could be done since it wasn't possible to squeeze colour out of the original video.

Thanks a lot for sharing this antiden, and to the amazing Chief Mouse for the fantastic job on this one. I don´t know how you do it, but the results are amazing!

So, just to make sure i catalogue this the right way, the only difference between this version and the Greatest Videos 2 DVD version is the aspect ratio, or is there something more?

Thanks again.

Everything's great, but the video looses it's original framerate, as I can compare it to the released GVH II version.

Yeah, it was 25 FPS PAL as opposed to 29.970 FPS NTSC GVH DVD version. Have to blame the original transfer for that.

Is there any chance you could make it a little bit smoother with fake frames? And check your PM, please :)

Man, this is excellent ! Great job, guys.


Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Is this the weirdest Queen video clip ever?

P.S. This is a direct transfer from VHS without any processing on it.
