No - haven't got that one Mike. You are correct - I don't go in for horror a great deal. [Frown]

Funny enough we had been watching some of our hefty collection of 16mm prints as these which always prove popular with older audiences. The 16mm prints are nice to view but I do find the 8mm issues somewhat lacking in sharpness.

IN SEARCH OF DRACULA is also available COMPLETE on dvd if you ever want to see the whole thing. Interesting doc.

One of the things I really liked about the "Swashbucklers" episode, is that it almost serves as a mini-documentary on the two highlighted people, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. and Errol Flynn which, in both cases, showed the two men aging past they're swashbuckling days, but especially with Errol Flynn, (one shot, shortly before he died) and how Errol in some ways, was almost clueless as to why he was aging prematurely and just seeing himself physically falling apart. Quite sad and it always makes me a little melancoloy, watching it.

It is sad Osi...
We have recently finished cataloguing the stock of titles and thumbing through so many films you cant help but ponder what private lives some of these top stars had back then, troubled geniuses many of them.

Another nice film to have is Wayne & Shusters Affectionate Look At Monsters which I forgot I had till we unearthed it.

Carry on projecting!

United Artists Eight released a few Hollywood & The Stars titles on Standard 8mm sound/silent 200'.

When Ken Films took over they only sold the silent versions.

Melvin England asked which episodes of Hollywood and the Stars appeared on S8 so I've bumped this older thread - the info required should all be here.
