We were having a discussion on 35mm Film Collector:
and no one seems to know for sure what an "Overlay Version" print is, can someone enlighten me and the rest of us for that matter? I deduced it was a watermarked print after doing some research on the web but could confirm this. Thanks.
I'm not going to register to read one thread.
So is this a complete feature or a trailer?
An overlay AKA o/lay is a clear role with subtitles on it which is printed in bipack with the picture negative. So an overlay version could be a subtitled print of a feature .
If it's a trailer it could be a version with no titles because the I/N would be bipacked with o/lays in various languages. So possibly a titleless print of a trailer. But that would usually be called a textless version.
