Vidar,

You are building quite a collection there, congratulations on your acquisitions, a scope lens will come around don;t worry.

Tonight, I screened The Iron Mask (1929) with my film club. It was Douglas Fairbanks last silent film and my print looked especially good tonight. I also just got a Direct Box (approx $10) for the line out, the sound has never been better!

No pic's tonight as, I didn't bring my camera but, next time...

Thank you, I am doing all I can to understand this scope lens sizes and what can be used. I don't want to buy something I can't use, at least if it's 300 or 400 dollars

Remember Vidar, there's no rush to buy a piece like that. It would be better to invest time learning about them then, making the purchase.

But to stay on topic...

I had to much coffee tonight so I just screened a few more shorts on my 8mm Sears Tower, a nice unit with a 1.2 lens and very bright halogen conversion. Realized I could use the front cover as temporary back cover so I don't have to keep screwing and unscrewing during a repair.

I screened the same silent trailer compilation that Dino just mentioned on a 200' reel. I really wanted another look at Louise Brooks in American Venus (1926), a pity I don't have any of her films. And was excited for The Live Wire (1925), I wonder if it was ever released on 8mm?

Then I ran a very rare short film by the artist Hans Richter, Robert Rauschenberg, and others from issue #5-6 of Aspen Magazine.

Didn't have my tele-cine set up so, no screenshots but, maybe next time...

Vidar ...

I highly admire that "High Plains Drifter" print that you have. Very good color for that title, (as most I have seen have varying states of fade). If you ever choose to part with it, please let me know.

I was quite amazed myself when I got it ... Expected not nearly as good as this really is. Has some lines though, but still I enjoy this immensely. I think it was 39 or 49 euro

I finally got my 1st Pink Panther film and we watched it tonight. This isn't my favorite pink panther episode but it is pretty funny. This is a Walton Super 8 sound. I was happy with the color and picture.

Vidar most scope lenses come down to having the correct bracket more than the lens size since they often are placed in front of the existing lens.

Gerald - The Live Wire was released on Standard 8 by Edward Finney in the 1960's and then re-released by Glenn Photo on Super8 when Murray acquired all of Finney's material..

Another movie I watched last night was classic short LOGANS RUN super 8mm 400 digest . I love Jenny Agar when she is getting all sexy with a skinny deep in the ice cave. It was nice to see her in the new AVENGER MOVIE.  -

I don't see a thread in the 16mm forum for this topic so I'm adding what I screened here. I just received my 16mm feature Time After Time (1979) starring Malcolm McDowell, Mary Steenburgen, and David Warner. H.G. Wells pursues Jack the Ripper to the 20th Century. I've always enjoyed time-travel movies and this one especially since many scenes were filmed where I grew up in San Francisco.

Janice, Nice looking screen shots of one of my favourite films, but sadly neglected on TV & in UK dvd. I have the trailer for this on super 8 bought from LA Films.

Hollywood and the Stars Great Directors
Pretty amazing content in this and perhaps a little underrated today but my word what interesting scenes and a film we projected three times last night. Was all set for another run through and we had a lightening storm had to close the cinema, but did so enjoy the Orson Welles content within.

I believe Classic Home Cinema has a print available of this at the moment at only £12 and well worth it with fascinating content.

Lee, Is "The Great Directors" complete or edited? I have some of "Hollywood And The Stars" some are 400ft a couple are 600ft & some were 1200ft.

The first film I bought was "Monsters We Have Known And Loved" from Derann. Great theme by Elmer Bernstein. too.

Abridged but really interesting and first broadcast in 1964 I believe. Another excellent film on Hollywood is ‘Hollywood the golden years’ presented by Gene Kelly.

Lee I have a 400' super 8 sound B&W print of 'The Great Directors' narrated by Joseph Cotton. Is this the same print you are talking about? Has profiles on DeMille, Hitchcock and Welles and interesting bits on quite a few others. I think it was a TV show.

I love the film. My print is dupey and looks good on a 3' screen but any bigger and the picture really suffers. It is in an unmarked box so I don't know the source. I would like to find a 16mm print of this title. I actually watched my copy a few weeks ago.

Janice...that print of 'Time After Time' looks awesome. One of my favorites as well.

Hi Bill
I seem to remember Derann, Powell and Perry’s did the 400ft and it’s the Derann print I have which is pretty good. I’ll be projecting it again shortly so will grab a screen shot so you can do a rough compare to the picture.

I have always loved that "Time after Time" movie. I once saw it on a used list on Super 8 optical sound and I wished to heck I had bought it. Very good print Janice!

I happen to have the scope feature of "Logans Run", and it's kind of ironic that it is slightly edited to get rid of all the nudity in it. Nearly all the run through the "sex shop" is edited out, as well as Jenny getting undressed in the ice cave.

Can anybody identify as to whether this was someone's personal choice (previous owners of my print) to edit those bits out, or is this the case with all the scope features of Logan's Run?

Osi...Logans Run is a classic movie...always fun to watch.I can somewhat see editing out the nudity if this was a version for TV or viewed in a school...but they probably wouldn't be using a scope version. Very strange.

Hi Osi,

I have a Kempski-print of Logan's Run (in Scope). The same Derann used later.
The scenes you are talking about are all in it. Nothing edited.
So it seems, that someone cutted it out in your copy.

I have the same print as Michael, and can't see any cuts. If it's
Jenny in the nude you're after Osi, check out "Walkabout" &
"Equus".

In my first screening since September(!) due to moving and all, I ran through my 3x400 Marketing featurette of "THE LONGEST YARD", that I edited/respooled unto 2x600 last night. It looked great! [Smile]

I have the same print of "Logans Run" free of edits as far as I know. Looks like you were unlucky, Osi!

Hey OSI yeah check out "Walkabout" I love that movie and there shots of full frontal with Jenny. I thought the ending of the film is creepy with the native boy dying and she just goes back to the city.
