Fans with Memorabilia Collections

Rick Balin
Here are some photos of Rick's ENORMOUS collection of TCM memorabilia!

Randy Carpenter
Randy is the lucky owner of the original Leatherface mask used in the 1974 movie.  Brad Shellady, the producer of "Texas Chain Saw Massacre: A Family Portrait" originally purchased the mask directly from Bob Burns, the set decorator for the film.  Brad owned the mask for a number of years and then sold it to Randy in June of 2001.  Randy is in the process of replacing the Plexiglas casing that Brad made for it with an air tight glass case.  Click HERE to view several up close pictures of the mask as it looks today.
Randy is ALSO the lucky owner of the original "Black Maria" truck door that Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) sawed on in the original movie.  Check out the pics of the door HERE.
And take a look at Randy's TCM collection.  Mask, door, posters, EVERYTHING!

Larry shows off his TCM collection.  The mask is a licensed Leatherface mask that was ordered from Fangoria many years ago.  The tags on it are by New Line Cinema from 1990.  Here's another licensed mask bought at the same time, another early TCM collectable.  The next item is of great interest, which is not only an original pressbook, but also an original vinyl 45 record of the radio spots that Bryanston made to promote the movie for radio stations.  That record is indeed a hard to find item!  Here's a closer look at the 45.  And finally, he owns an uncut, unfolded printer's proof of the Screamin' Leatherface model kit.
Here's some original TCM German lobby cards.  #1, #2 & #3.

Stefan Wille
Stefan submitted a scan of the German VHS jacket as well as this MP3 (2 MB) of the ending credits, which is some strange techno music.  Here's what Stefan had to say about this version:
"I attached the End Title song plus a jpg of the cover of the version, I sampled that track from. The End Titles were roughly edited (They show only the actors, a short part of the staff and then the copyright of Vortex. They run as long as the song: 46 seconds It makes no sense to count the several cut versions, that TCM suffered since its cinematic release in Germany. This will was mistreated and right now (besides of many uncut bootlegs) you can also get an FSK16- rated version on DVD that runs only 62 minutes. The baddest cuts were made in the end of the film, were they not only cut the scene down with grandpa, hitting Marilyn's head only one time (and in the most versions without the hitting sounds). But this version is interesting because of its soundtrack (I think some library music)..Hope you enjoy it."
