I saw a nice print of a Ray Harryhusen treat 20 Million Miles To EARTH it was a very nice digest 400 reel in beautiful black and white with nice contrast. I love that part where the Ymir brecks from the egg it looks so real. And it was animation magic when it fought the elephant in Rome and died like Kong at the end. Ray breaths soul into his creations.  -

Then I toke a look at KING KONG for a stop motion night.  -

Hi Everyone,

Well I started with a triple bill of cartoons - 2 Inspector Willoughby and the 200ft extract from Hoppity Goes to Town followed by the 400ft of Major 8's - 21 Hours at Munich then Laurel and Hardy in Beau Hunks followed by PM Films - Knife for the Ladies and I've just finished screening Universal 8's 2x400ft cutdown of The Hindenburg and I'm still going - I like screening a mixed bag of goodies !!

Had the house to myself over the week-end,so had a nice double
feature of my two latest finds on 16mm,two heist movies that
couldn't be more different,the first was "The Master Touch" aka
as "A Man To Respect" with Kirk Douglas and Giuliano Gemma.
The plot concerns Douglas just released from prison, attempting
to pull off two robberies simultaneously with the aid of a young
circus artist, Gemma.The idea being that Kirk gets caught for
the lesser one,goes back to jail for 18 months and comes out to
collect over a million dollars.Unfortunately his partner has killed
one of the security guards and said nothing,leaving Kirk high
and dry in police hands.He escapes to "settle up" with his partner,who tries to take off with the money but only succeeds
in being killed,leaving Kirk facing 30 years for a killing he didn't
commit.The film is in 16mm 'scope and apart from some great
photoghraphy boasts a superb Morricone score.
The second film is more of a guide to how to rob a bank, and is
based on a true story of a bank on the Riviera being done over
entitled "Sewers of Gold" and stars Ian McShane and Warren
Clarke.As the title suggests,the robbers tunnel in through the
sewer walls and into the bank vault, then raid the safe deposit
boxes.The members of the gang are rounded up,but our hero
manages to make his escape in a preplanned operation on the
back of a motorbike.He still lives in South America. This was again a 16mm print, both with very good colour.I know that if
I was designing a bank safe, I would call on the services of the
guy that designed the "Dairylea" cheese segments in foil,I have
yet to meet anyone who has successfully got into one.

A Farewell to Arms 1932
It’s one of those films I’ve never seen before for some reason and really enjoyed it. I particularly liked the photography with the film securing two academy awards at the time. Helen Hayes and Gary Cooper are the leading names in this story of love under wraps where they are governed by arm rules and regulations. As I say beautifully filmed especially for a 1932 talkie and good to know Collectors Club released this feature full length which I timed 80 minutes on the Elmo. The films ending is a tearful climax for what will remain an enduring 1932 gem I am sure.

Not last night,

-but during the aftermath of the hurricane we got our power back first, so we had my Mom out for a few days while they untangled her trees and her power line.

One night we were watching a print of Abbot and Costello's "Who's on First?" which Doug Meltzer gave my son at Cinesea and "Universal 8" showed after the end credits.

Mom then reminded me that before I was born she worked at Universal on Park Avenue processing orders of 8mm films to retail stores.

...I guess it must be in my blood!

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

What do you do for getting best possible pictures? I seem to get blurry, as there's almost always movement on screen. Do you film it or take stills? I have a Sony DV Video Camer and a Canon EOS 450D. Any settings on the camera you can recommend?

BTW: I view a couple of cartoons this evening, like Two Gun Goofy, Prince and the Dragon, Bear Trouble and Chimp's Last Chance. Still haven't gotten around to viewing the Regular 8 reels I've got. I am truly enjoying 8mm again

Okay Vidar lets see some pics. I use a FUJIFILMS DIGITAL CAMERA on regular seting . It is a hit or miss taking the pictures you just have to try different setings till you get the one you like. The movie is going so it is hard to not get some out of focus but keep trying to shoot with out flash strait at the screen till it works. Good Luck. You can ask Dino he is the master! DINO where are you????

Have problems with two things, I don't get the picture upload function and the camera just won't take other than blurry images ... It takes forever when you click to take picture until it's finished because of the poor lighting ...

Sorry, can't upload pictures here
