Does anyone know what ever happened to any of the cpstumes used in the film? Does anyone on here own any memorabilia or props from the film?

Welcome to the boards, Threestorms! Smile

As far as I know, no one here owns any actual props from the film. (I haven't seen any pics or threads about it since I've been a member here.)

I hate to speak for the group, so if anyone out there knows differently please speak up! (If I don't say anything, this thread might go unanswered- I'm the only one prowling around lately.) Wink

Thank you very much for getting back. The props have to be somewhere, maybe they are still in storage somewhere....

I own a crew jacket from the film... I'll have to post pictures of it sometime. I got it years ago from a fan who worked on the film.

Hi guys -
Something tells me that several of the costumes and props are probably still locked up (or perhaps displayed) somewhere on the premises of 20th Century Fox since you can catch a glimpse of some of them (e.g. the bamboo costumes worn by The Three Storms) in one of the featurettes on the special edition DVD (costume designer April Ferry talks about making the costumes).
And Josh, it's funny hearing that you also have an original BTLC film crew jacket! I bought mine on-line from a British business man who said he'd bought it from a Chinese woman whose father had worked on the BTLC set; that jacket is my most prized possession and the crown of my BTLC collection Smile It is fantastic to have an item that is directly linked to the movie; an item that has probably been on the actual BTLC set back in the mid-80s! You should definitely post some pics of the jacket so that the rest of the BTLC community can see it (and the fantastic embroidered logo on the left hand side of the chest of the jacket).
Thanks for a terrific website. See you around.
