I really like this one:

 -

-not just because I like drive-in theaters (or chocolate cake...)

-but because the Dad that made it actually saw "Jaws" at our long deceased drive-in back in the day!

If I'd known he was going to do this I would have brought my drive-in speaker for supporting decoration.

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

I hope the cake was tasty.
I just watched Hindenberg Explodes by Pathegrams. A very dramatic tragedy.

I also watched a Japanese travelogue I think. A film by Sakuragraph.

I watched a fairly good 16mm LPP print of "Yellowbeard".

The two films were silent 16mm. The Hindenburg Explodes was one of the first from Pathegrams, released in 1937. I do not know much about the Japanese film from Sakuragraph.

I have a super 8 optical sound feature of "Yellowbeard that was thankfully, printed on LPP film stock and the colors are still brilliant. It's a better comedy than it is usually given credit for being!

I have the "Hindenburg Explodes" documentary, but curiously, it states that it is edited by Eugene Castle and was one of the very first Castle Films releases. I have it on standard 8mm on a "blue" B/W Kodak film stock, (I bet it turned blue over time), however, the image quality isn't the sharpest, which is a rarity for standard 8mm, but a neat time capsule, to be sure!

Hi Osi, personally, I think Yellowbeard is far more fun than the "Pirates of the Carribean" movies (and thankfully, MUCH shorter) but that's just me!

Been awhile, mainly since I have been preoccupied, but after attending the theatre to finally see the excellent BULLY, I watched a couple of silent 9.5mm shorts. First up was DYNAMITE (1920, Pathescope SB807 1 x 300ft) starring the extremely funny but not always PC Lloyd 'Ham' Hamilton, followed by SNUB THE FERRYBOAT MAN aka THE OLD SEA DOG (1922, Pathescope SB847 1 x 300ft) which is one of the Snub Pollard starring vehicles he made for Hal Roach that was directed by Charley Chase.

SO....I had a bit of a mishap recently..I was being nice and took my Eumig 807 that I normally use for standard 8's to a special home movie event at a museum here in town. Well, the leather case it lives in ripped completely and the projector bounced on the concrete of the parking garage, and ....well that was the end of her...I have yet to figure out what broke, but she don't work no mo!....SO I figured I needed another and decided to pick up another 824 instead, and luckily found a completely mint one that looked like it barely was ever used. So tonight I watched a really rare Clara Bow feature...The print is not the greatest quality but is an old Film Classic Exchange, and until i find a better one this is it...... FREE TO LOVE (1925, 5 x 200ft)

Dino,

Is that the Film - O - Clean device that's mounted to the front of the projector?
If it is, then there seems to be a considerable amount of black residue from the film which is displaced onto the film cloth wheels.

I'm reluctant to own one and in fear that any black build-up, broken sprocket would
scratch or tear the film. Is it possible that a hanging sprocket chad could break off and scratch the film or lodge in its pathway? What has been your experience with the machine?

Last but not least, does the fluid from the unit either soften or dull the films sharpness during projection?

--------------------
Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!

Jaws (U8 2x400)
Our Gang: Follies of 1938 (400' Blackhawk)

My outdoor film series "Summer Movie Nights" started this past Saturday with "WEST SIDE STORY". Superb Scope print I received from Mike Peckham, and a great stereo re-record by Lance Alspaugh, gave us a great show! Around 30 friends joined in, and everyone had a great time!

Next month: "AIRPLANE!", so if you happen to be in Nashville the weekend of the 23rd, let me know. I'm running one show a month through October.

Michael, I have never had a case of the fluid affecting the focus, and yes the excessive black you see on the cleaning media is from some 9.5 films as they are often FILTHY when I get new ones...The media is re-useable, and while that section in the picture looks like a real dirty spot, most of the roll is still pretty decent.......As for your concerns they are unnecessary, as I watch every single film I project on all gauges with the cleaner, and have not had any issues like you mention...Keep in mind that the cleaning media is progressing along, so if you had that rare, weird occurrence where something came off the film and lodged itself in the media, it wouldn't really have a chance to scratch the film since the media is moving from one roller over to another roller, so that lodged piece would get moved over to the "take up" roll..Trust me since MANY of the 9.5 films I watch not only have broken sprockets, but often have these little plastic sprocket repair tabs that come off now, and i have never had a case of them sticking in the media nor scratching the film...I can't imagine watching old films with out the film o clean now

It's been a month since we watched something on film. A friend's visit was a good excuse to dig into my collection. The first screening was the Oscar winner An Occurrence on Owl Creek Bridge. The print is not as good as I remembered it from a previous screening; today I noticed the contrast isn't the best.

 -

If that short didn't blow my friend away, the cinemascope projection certainly did. Hugh recently gifted me a collection of extracts put out by Derann; some of them will surprise anyone. The best is a sequence from Capricorn One involving two planes. Next we watched a trailer of Lawrence of Arabia with the best picture and sound I have experienced.

 -

The screen size for my scope projection was definitely over 11 feet with okay-okay brightness. We were quite happy.

 -

Thanks, Hugh!

Yes,you're quite right Lee,it'sa great hobby and one that can be shared with other people and nice way to round off a pleasant
afternoon with friends, as Akshay has shown with his great
screenshots.I think that presentation would definately impress
on an 11' screen.Well done.The other film you showed I also have
on 16mm and it is a very sad little tale that still packs a punch.
So I would imagine your guests had a very enjoyable day Akshay
and top marks for presentation.

Hugh, it wasn't as good as it could have been. My walls, roof, floor, .... all are white! Although the room is large with side walls far apart, the ceiling is low. So we had light reflecting from the top and bottom of the image. Yesterday we made peace with this and enjoyed what we could.

If I don't have second thoughts on the hobby, like Roger Skunk is experiencing now, I will save up for a cinemascope screen. Let's see how things go.
