It's too bad it doesn't have the orginal titles, (The Flip Cartoon).

Blackjhawk was really good about the original titles on thier cartoons and they released a great deal of the Flip cartoons, including the very first one, "Fiddlesticks", and some of that specific title even made it out onto LPP film stock, as I have one.

Though two strip technicolor, the range of color is actually quite good and I was struck by the fact that the super 8 LPP print is actually BETTER than the archival print used for the Ub Iwerks collection on DVD, which was made from Blackhawk 35MM masters, as the blacks were "red" most of the way through the cartoon on the DVD, but the blacks are pure black on the super 8 print.

Apparantly, the master they received from the Blackhawk archives, was on Eastman stock, so though it was 35MM, it is of lesser quality than the LPP prints made from, quite possibly, the same negative, which was no doubt not faded when those super 8 prints were struck in 1982.

Lee...I just came back from the Columbus CINEVENT Film Convention over the Memorial Day weekend. I go down (2 hours south) on Saturday every year and catch the Annual Animation Program. WHAT A LIFE was the first cartoon screened (on 16mm) and it was a hoot! I love it when the various repairmen come walking out of the closet!

Perhaps not watching film for long makes you want to watch several at once. This evening we watched Laurel & Hardy in The Bohemian Girl. My wife and I have been pleasantly surprised with how nice these Laurel & Hardy features are. Everyone seems to speak only of Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Gotta feel for Stan & Ollie.

Osi & Bill. Sounded an interesting event that. Local collectors, myself included have something of a menagerie of films with our favourite cartoon animals in as well. Its good to have such a good appreciation of the old movies we feel.

I like that one too, Osi, so didn't tile it with the other pics. Fortunately, I had the camera ready at the right time.

Akshay, Laurel and Hardy are the two finest comedians ever,and their films will never date as long as anyone has a sense of humour
the screenshots are excellent by the way.It looks like we might
join the digital age and get a digi camera,all I then need is
instruction on how to put them up on here.

First was "Touche Pussy Cat" (Cineavision). I almost got rid of this last month when I realised a decent scope lens was really out of my price range. Then,a beautiful Ishico Proskar Anamorphic 16 shouted "buy me" at Brisbane Camera Fair. It was hidden amongst a pile of lenses and at the price, I couldn't say no.

 -

Then, it was "Clash of the Titans" ( Mgm 3 x 400ft).Great fun.Fading but it was nice to be the first to break open those seals.

Reel One of "Victor Victoria"(Red Fox).Stunning colour.

Finally, Jack Nicholson in "Wolf" on blu-ray.(Much better than all that "Twilight" rubbish)

Jonathan, how much did you pay for Isco Anamorphic lens if you don't mind to tell. Because I just got exaftly the same lens for $75 includes one bracket and one braket with stand.

BTW Clash of Titans is an MGM release not Marketing. So did you say it has faded while was fully sealed? so fading process can take place no matter the film did not have contact with the light (sun or bulb)?

Sorry Winbert,I meant to say MGM. I've got films coming out of my ears at the moment and i'd been watching alot of Marketing stuff the night before. From my experience, film definitely fades even if sealed. The Marketing ones had their seals intact and original cellophane and they had all faded to differing degrees.
The lens was a steal at $20.No fittings though.

How many films have two main actresses named Gertrude? Tonight I started with a standard 8mm short that was an old tour of Universal Studios BEHIND THE SCREEN (1915)(1 x 200ft) followed by an 8mm feature that was a lot of fun. The Reginald Denny comedy A CHEERFUL FRAUD 1926 (Milestone, 5 x 200ft)which costarred Gertrude Olmstead and Gertrude Astor, is a typical Denny farce with an action packed ending. Jewel Thieves, misunderstandings and a runaway car.... FUN!

Last night I was moonlighting at my old jobb, the local cinema.
The film was Prometheus. 35MM copy in glorious 2D.
Here are some pictures I did take from the booth.

Can I ask if the feature is good? Did you like it? Is it legally okay for you to answer?

Today was dedicated to the under appreciated. This afternoon I watched a very funny comedy on Standard 8mm starring the often overlooked comedienne Vera Reynolds, and the always funny Zasu Pitts in SUNNY SIDE UP 1926 (Regent 6 x 200ft) a rags to riches love triangle with the most unexpected ending ever. Vera has a scene very much like marion Davies in The Patsy where she goes through a series of impressions, that are very funny.

Then this evening my wife and I watched an overlooked drama on 16mm by Michael Apted (The director of the 7-up series) entitled FIRSTBORN 1984 (2 x 1600ft, LPP) starring Corey Haim, Robert Downy Jr., Sarah Jessica Parker (all at the beginning of their careers) and a virtually unknown actor named Christopher Collet who is brilliant in this movie but never had much of a career besides some TV slots...With the exception of one short absolutely terrible line of dialogue, this movie is really good.

Tonight's showing was one of my personal favorites, Killer Fish from 1979. (2x 1600' LPP). It stars James Franciscus (Great White, Planet of the Apes, etc), Lee Majors (6 Million Dollar Man), and Karen Black. The color on that print was FANTASTIC! There were some lines and blimps here and there but it was so awesome finally being able to watch it on a big screen.

Here's some footage I shot during the beginning of the film.

I was asked to see what was on these 9.5 notched reels for someone and much to my surprise (and then unhappiness, since these aren't my reels) one of them is a super rare stencil color film. I have a few of the color reels, but want more because they are so fascinating. Anyway it was a good excuse to use my new Bolex DA that I picked up while waiting for a replacement gear for my other one...Most of the films turned out to be educational ones, except the color one, Max on the Telephone, and a couple of O'Gallop cartoons that I haven't figured out yet.

Dangerous Lady 1941
PRC
Love this 16mm film and first time ever screened here on the wonder Bell & Howell. It stars Neil Hamilton, June Storey and a great surprise to see silent star Evelyn Brent in a PRC flick. Being a detective film about a husband and wife duo it reminded me of the great Paul Temple films but a USA version. Just finished a service on this projector and nice to see it running so well.

The animated stork in that first screenshot looks a lot like a Max Fleischer aniamted character, but I can't be sure.

My 3 grandsons (ages 7, 5 & 2) all watched their first Woody Woodpecker cartoons on a film projector. Their favorite was the Barber of Seville.
