Great still from Airplane and really good colours to, you lucky chap,the full feature

Just a short showing tonight but a rare and goody, The 400ft cut down of the brilliant Young Frankenstein, This is a German piccolo copy in its original plastic case and re-recorded into English with great patience by Mr John Clancy, and a superb recording it is to. An excellent b/w print with a pin sharp image. This is one of my favourite comedy's from Mel Brooks, if I could only afford the feature but as I do have it on DVD this makes for an excellent souvenir and is very well cut down and includes the scene with the brilliant Gene Hackman as the blind old man.
We started off with a reel of Ads from independent 8 and the rare trailer for the young Frankenstein movie.

Great print Tom! Isn't it funny that the picture stills on the film case are in color?? [Razz]

it is odd, I've seen a few boxes of b/w films in the past where colour production stills are used, and even more odd is they always put pictures on the boxes that are from scenes not in the cut down. [Mad] [Wink]

'Young Frankenstein' was available for hire only from FDA. I think it cost me £12.50 to hire from them. The print was fantastic. Now I wonder where they all went?

Tonight I took a 400 footer I put together starting with, Saving Private Ryan trailer, (if only that 600ft opening could have got released on 8mm)Reflections USA, Titanic trailer Reflections 100 years of British cinema. This is a great full 400footer, then onto the Iver release of Helter Skelter, originally on 2 x 400ft and now on one full 600ft spools.
This, as we all know, is the story of the Manson murders, which that weirdo Charles Manson & his followers carried out on actress Sharon Tate and others. The state of California abolished the death sentence when he & his associates went into prison, what a shame, they should have all been executed. This film was originally shown on TV as a two part feature running for 194 minutes so considering this Iver did a superb job cutting this into half an hour. Quality is very good with excellent colour's & sound to match. there's a fair bit of negative dirt/marks mainly on part one but this doesn't cause any problems. Manson is brilliantly played by Steve Railsback & also Marilyn Burns of Texan chainsaw massacre fame plays Linda Kasabian who appears to have been part of the gang but was genuinely trying to make them stop.

Not a classic movie but a very good TV movie and a very well edited super 8 release.

Tom- I remember watching Helter Skelter on late night TV in the 70's. It creeped me out so bad I couldn't sleep!

That's a nice print you have too.

Not had a great deal of time to watch any films due to organising a film fair plus work but did squeeze in a Popeye ‘I never changes my altitude’ from good old Collectors Club. Nice one this complete with certificate and Paramount opening. Fingers crossed we may watch some flicks over the weekend.

Last night we watched 'The Birds' Still has some colour, but the blacks have a red tinge. Nicely edited with good sound and sharp image.

Columbia's digest of Ray Harryhausen's 'It Came From Beneath The Sea' A good edited version with nice sharp black & white image and the Columbia narrator is only used sparingly.

Then a compilation reel. Starting with Disney's 200ft 'The Love Bug' nice sharp & good sound. Not sure if this has any fade the colours aren't strong, but I think its always been like that. Same reel the two extracts from 'Bedknobs & Broomsticks' (Beautiful Briny & Match Of The Century) both excellent really good colour. Last on this reel Walton's Tom & Jerry 'Tee For Two' excellent print good colour.

The last one 400ft 'The Great Highway' a British Transport Film, about the west coast railway line. Great colour & sound on this one, released by DCR.

IN case anyone wondered if I was just selling off all of my silents, think again, I still have hundreds I am keeping. Tonight I watched a low budget western entitled WANTED BY THE LAW (1924, 5 x 200' feet, Standard 8mm) This J.B. Warner western is an absolutely gorgeous print, but I cannot remember who released it. The lead actor, Warner actually died the same year this film was released. It is a wonder that everyone in this film did not die of frostbite because you can clearly see their breath in all of the interior scenes where none of them are wearing jackets.

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in "Them Thar Hills" followed by its sequel "Tit for Tat". Both are Blackhawk. "Hills" is a better print than (ummmm) "Tat".

I decided to lead off with a trailer, and it was the one for "Star Trek, Generations". (Because I felt like it, I guess! It's my "theater" after all!)

Finally some screenshots from me, I always forget to take some! Apologies for the low quality, it was taken in a dark room with my phone as my DSLR was recharging.

With the new living room done I fixed up a new alternative for running films, with a home-made screen that I attach to the wall when needed. Here it is:

 -

It is a 1 x 1,33 metre piece of thin fibrecloth painted white, with a black, faux leather trim stapled around it, producing a nice 4:3 screen with some matting at the edges.

Anyway; to the screening!

We saw my two new prints, both courtesy of mr Dino Everett. First up was the 2x400 Super 8 Blackhawk silent cutdown of "Nosferatu", which I respooled to a nearly full 600' with new, white leader.

Here's a shot of the ST-1200 projecting it:
 -

And here's two shots from the film:
 -
 -

Afterwards it was time for the 4x400 Reg.8 silent print of "Mark of Zorro", where my trusty Bolex 18-5 worked its magic.

Here's a shot of the projector before we started:
 -

And here's a shot from the film:

Well who’s on first? Yeah. Go ahead and tell me. Who. The guy on first. Who. The guy playin’ first base. Who. The guy on first. Who is on first! What are you askin’ me for? I’m askin’ you!

It's kinda awesome with those norwegian meets. Got 13-14 16mm prints at 10 to 20 GBP and most of these Super 8's were 2 or 3 pounds each. Just can't say no to that :-)

Thank you

Thank you, Mr. Caramelo. I sure will keep this :-) I was looking for a decent print last year, but none came up in full feature, only the 4x400' I believe it was. A huge thanks to Hugh Thompson Scott for selling me this
