You paid only 30 pounds for a feature of Casblanca? My Gawd! That has to be the best price for that feature I have ever seen!

That was a Derann release, I believe (unless there were other super 8 companies that released it as well). My print is on Agfa 2S and has to be one of the sharpest Super 8 black and whites I have ever run across!

What a find. By the way, your having incredible good luck with that filer, Junior Bonner looks great with it.

It was even better Osi, 25 GBP and I think the Junior Bonner is going to be viewed filterless next time, as I assumed it was faded due to the yellowy/browny colors in the opening. Well worth 25 GBP each those two.

Good old Popeye in GOONLAND 1938
A reasonably fair print from bargain basement Collectors Club with the added benefit of a splendid digitally re-recorded audio track which gives the oldies a lift particularly when this super 8 film is 36 years old. A delightful cartoon this where the film breaks on screen towards the end and the animator carries out a quick film join.

Those screenshots from the 400ft "People That Time Forgot" were interesting. If you should ever chose to get into super 8 optical sound films, you'll find a full feature of this title with a picture that is at least equal to 16MM, letterboxed to it's theatrical ratio and at least on very print that I have seen (and I have this film as well) a very low fade lovely color. Truly rich color.

What a nice gift, that trailer reel!

I'd love an optical print, just not easy to find. I have some four or five optical films myself and with my first ST-1200D, it was awful. The sound cut a lot, but it wasn't the print. I tested that later and it runs fine on my GS-1200 Xenon.

Do you have one for sale, let me know

Thanks

Kind of a Mini-Fantasia:

The Sorceror's Apprencite
Bach's Toccatta and Fugue
Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony

I watched these the way I usually do: two projectors alternating for continuous viewing with a switch between them to swap the sound system from one to the other.

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

Finally got the GS-1200 working in tip top shape with a new amp, and the roller assembly unit that Paul Adsett wrote about. So given that my wife is out of town this weekend, it has been film watching time..And thanks to forum member Ferran Gimenez I watched tonight one I have wanted for some time now....Although I still wish to find the full 5 reel version, I have to say for an edited film this 4 reel version is pretty tight. TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974, 4 x 400ft IVER films) ...I love, love, love this film..They just don't make the slasher/horror films as good as the original 3 (TCM/Halloween/F13th)..The print does have some lines here and there, but doesn't really detract too much since quite honestly most 35mm prints I have seen of this title are scratched...The only thing I thought was odd was that the titles (head and tail) seemed fairly soft compared to the rest of the film...

Great pix Vidar! The "Airplane" full feature is somewhat rare, and that looks like a beautiful print.

Thank you. Yes, it's quite okay, but not for my GS-1200 Xenon, as it has the sideways movement. It has a stripe, that doesn't bother me much. Best of all was the price I got it for. I think it was 25 or 30 dollars

6x400' though the last reel mainly is the end credits (probably 6-8 minutes, a half 400')

Had to post this classic line

"Surely you can't be serious" "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley"

I too have this full length, a good fun film.
What type of box did you get it in? Mine was just a generic Marketing Films box for all the reels, no pictures, just label with the title stuck on.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

No box at all, but I've put them in two 1200' cardboard boxes and printed the poster on it. Was 1 loose reel (a big one) and I took them down to 400's at the splices (I only had Eumig Mark-S 710D running at that time). After my GS-1200 Xenon was in my house, I mounted them on two 1200' (might have been enough with a 1200' and an 800')

One of the great things of participating in this Forum, I read through some posts and became inspired to watch these:

Laurel and Hardy: You're Darn Tootin' (Scored Silent)

Our Gang: Hook and Ladder

I used the Eumig 824 for some Standard 8 titles and went heavy handed tonight. First up, a short Dante in the Inferno (Perry's 1 x 200ft mute, 1935) I was always curious about this short hoping it was from the 1924 version but it is just a muted sequence from the Harry Lachman film. I followed this with WHITE GOLD (Cine Service, 6 x 200ft, 1927) starring beauty Jetta Goudal.. A somber tale that thankfully co-stars Clyde Cook who provides some comic relief. You probably won't see the ending of this one coming, but I will tell you that white gold are sheep and have very little to do with the overall story. An underrated movie but far from uplifting.
