Broke with tradition and watched a bit of 35mm Nitrate film [Eek!] A full on nostalgia evening with good old George in this 1935 original print still in very good shape.

Lee,

The nitrate is visually appealing, but how do you store the film when it's not

being used and are you required to have special insurance for your house?

Osi, haha If only my wife was as enthusiastic! [Smile]

She did however sit with me to watch a classic sci fi thriller. A fun movie albeit an extremely worn print. FIEND WITHOUT A FACE (1962, B/W CinemaEight, 4 x 400, Super8). I noticed there was not a review so I'll go post one.

It's been quite some time since I have posted in this topic so, I am starting again.A few nights ago I did an all standard 8 show comprised of the following:
THE LOST MOMENT (1949),a complete (88 minutes) Derann feature from the old days when they were releasing Universal productions. Based on Henry James' The Aspern Papers ,it is a dark and moody piece,all the better appreciated by a good copy, exellently directed by actor Martin Gabel and finely acted by Robert Cummings,Susan Hayward and Agnes Moorehead.Certainly different from the usual fare we mainly show and worth one's time for a good literary adaptation....
...plus,"the usual fare"!!
A rare Chester Conklin-Vernon Dent two reeler from 1931,THE 13TH ALARM,directed by Del Lord,with all the usual car chase (in this case,fire engine) tricks abounding. Not the greatest,but funny enough.
BEDTIME,an exellent crystal clear Kodascope print (with a greenish hue) of a KoKo the clown cartoon
plus,a reel of silent serial trailers.

Vidar,

Is the print of Thicker Than Water Standard 8,or Super 8?

I have a Standard 8 print of this and it's excellent, as is yours seen in the picts.

Last night we started with Walton's Tom & Jerry 'Triplet Trouble' with nice colour.

A Flip the Frog 'Music Lesson'

A mixed trailer reel starting with Jef Films 'The Blue Lagoon' then 'Small Town Girl' 'Gone With The Wind' finally 'Calamity Jane'

Mountain Film with Leon Erroll 'Spook Speaks' followed by an old Collectors Club release 'Calling All Girls' More trailers on a 400ft. Ending the film show a Pathe Pic with power boats and other sailing boats.

Followed by the blu-ray 'Where Eagles Dare' I must get my 16mm next time.

--------------------
I love the smell of film in the morning.

Thank you Mr. Savage, I enjoyed the films you sent me today. The Little Rascals The Lucky Corner was very nice and I really appreciate the bonus of that :-)
 -

The Abbott and Costello I didn't know was two 200's. I thought there was a 400' In Society, but the first is one I had in silent form before, so it's nice to have the sound version
 -

And finally I got The Blues Brothers 2x400' and now missing two that I know of, Smokey and the Bandit 2 and The Nude Bomb

This had the expected U8 warmth to the colors

Thank you Luis Caramelo, the films arrived today

Was a couple of small problems ... Duel had out of sync sound and I am not sure all Derann Once Upon a Mouse is dark, but this was quite dark

Here's the pictures from todays viewing
Ben Hur, 1200' Scope, and not from Luis. A bit pale, but still has some colors
 -

Duel, 400'
 -

Once Upon a Mouse, 600' Derann print
 -

The Muppet Movie, 400' with really super colors

Great images Vidar, your copy of Duel has really good colour by look of it.
Last night we put on the Avengers Return of the Cybernauts, (1968) 3 x 400ft colour, what's left of it) sound. Unfortunately the colour has just about left this print and with some scratching as well we were in two minds to list this on e-bay but unsure of what it would go for we will hang onto it for a bit longer. I HATE FADE. Why on earth did Derann ever use that cheap crappy fast fade film stock, as well as all the other companies.
This is such a pity as this is probably one of the best ever episodes with the added bonus of the great Peter Cushing as a main star and Fulton (Porridge) Mackay as a guest.

Just to get our eyes back to normal we finished up with a 400ft colour sound copy of Scooby Doo in the haunted house, (second episode of the first series)

Tonight we viewed the brilliant 3 x 400ft marketing copy of The Godfather, mounted onto one 800ft spool so no interruption's.
I'm glad we own this version and not the full length feature as these 3 x 400 footers seem to hold up well on the colour where as most of the full length ones seem to have faded or are well on the way. This one is in great shape, colour and sound up to the usual standard. Although I have seen three different copies of this film and I cant describe any of them as pin sharp, simply very good. And very well edited down from three hours.

How did 3x400 fit on one 800ft reel, Tom?

marketing used very thin but extremely tough polyester film, its almost impossible to tear it with your hands, in fact all the marketing 3x400 footers all fit very nicely onto one 800 ft spool, we have chinatown, godfathers one and two, once upon a time in the west,the warriors, and a few others and each one is on an 800 ft spool, they are full but not over spilling.
