Just finished watching a 16mm feature i've had here for a long time, and finally had a chance to view it. 1920 silent western "The Unknown Ranger" starring Rex Ray. (snapped the pics with the flash off and didn't capture the best quality with the camera)

Thank you ... No secret :-) I do not photograph them, I make a video with either my Sony DV camera or the Nikon D3200 (this camera seem to add red tones that's not really there on screen)

I take it into a program I bought, Power Director 10 and take screen shots of the ones I want. Then I remove a little borders (trying to keep the edges of the screen there) and then resize them to 400 (this used to be 550, but since the other forum needs 400, I opted for that)

You can also use the free VLC player for screen shots

Ah Mr Flynn. Two excellent 2x400ft releases. Great cutdowns, and very repeatable.

Tonight we watched one of the best scope films in our collection, the 4 x 400ft feature My name is Nobody, always liked this one, (I believe there is a few full features of this on 8mm out there somewhere, we do have the feature on DVD but you cant compare it on TV to this big scope screen version.
A great mix of action and comedy with the brilliant Henry Fonda and Terrence Hill and a great, if sometimes unusual, soundtrack by Ennio Morriconnie.
In brief, Jack Beauregard, (Fonda), once the greatest gunslinger of the Old West, wants to move to Europe and retire in peace. But a young gunfighter, known only as "Nobody", (Hill), idolises him and wants to see him go out in a blaze of glory. He arranges for Jack to face the 150-man gang known as The Wild Bunch and earn his place in history, a really good scope screen filler, the colour has held up quite well and the sound is excellent.
I think we got this one for around £60 many many years ago.

I had a very different kind of film showing.

We had friends out from Brooklyn for Easter. One of them is our friend's 82 year old Aunt who is having a rough time of it health-wise.

Our friend was going through storage in their house and found a number of 400 foot reels of her late Uncle's home movies from the late 1960s. I looked at one of them and found that Uncle Charlie was a pretty decent home movie maker but his tape splices and my ELMO didn't get along at all! So I took a reel and went through it end to end with the Bolex beveled cement splicer.

So we sat everyone down after Dinner and told Aunt Yvonne: "It's your film show tonight." She asked "What's it about?" and I said "You need to tell us!"

These were all Kodachromes of family parties in their Brownstone in Bay Ridge and in wonderful shape. They even included Uncle Charlie setting up his Kodak projector, maybe to screen some of the same footage we watched last night.

They got to have a "visit" with long gone relatives and tell some stories. We got to see our friend who turned 60 last fall as a high schooler!

No sound, no 'scope: just memories. (Kind of a window back in time.)

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

Steve Watching home movies of your memories is fantastic. We watched a couple of mine last week of my first trip I think to US from 1980 followed by RAF Finningley 81.

I wish I could start an archive of peoples home movies and put them on the internet. I feel they have a real place to play in the history of the world.

That's fantastic. Sounds like a great show. Must've been quite moving.

Tom ...

I have that print too and the color has held up well. I have always wished that they would have put out on a 200ft reel that beginning sequence when Henry Fonda gets his "shave", which alone, was quite excellent!

Last night we put up a couple of shorts including the Playground Skirmish extract from The Matrix, this one is the 200ft stereo sounds with excellent all round quality, a great little item and fills the scope screen with action all the way,

Vidar ...

In that large shot, is that a young Charles Bronson as the indian (standing there with Rod Steiger)? I'm just curious.

Osi, it sure is :-) Lately (after starting collection of films), I've seen him in more than one film where he's an indian ... He's in Guns for San Sebastian and I think Drum Beat or something like that.

Bronson was cool :-)

The Silent Ennemy, a 1930's silent film starring Indians. It is explained at the beginning of the film that it was shoot as a kind of documentary. The fact that it was a silent film in 1930 made it not a commercial success as, as everybody knows, the talkies already attracted people for three years. My copy has a sound track with music and, curiousely, a spoken introduction by one of the actors. So I wonder if the sound track is original (obviousely, the spoken introduction is) and if it was released with it in 1930 (which could make sense if there were no longer orchestras or pianists in the cinemas at that time).

Last night was the 3 x 400 footer, (joined onto 2 x 600 foot spools), of Superman and this one has the little extra bits put in from what I assume was a short version, although it all fits well there is a difference in the sound quality but as we go through and old pioneer stereo amp doesn't really cause too much bother, colour is very good,(as is the sound), which makes it a bit odd that these images appear to have fade, this light red only appears through my old digital camera when I take these images during a show, the actual movie is ten times better, what a pity it was never put out in scope like 2 and 3.

Mine is exactly the same Tom! The person who owned it from new had spliced the 400ft version in and edited it well, but although their is no noticeable fade between the two different prints, the volume level is way down on the 400ft bits to that of the abridged feature.

Also the framing is slightly different but if you overshoot slightly in the borders of the screen it is not noticeable or necessary to re-frame between scenes.

The one I have is mounted on one very full 1200ft reel and ends with the Superman II trailer.

I have been so busy "rockin" lately I haven't had time for films ,but things calmed down for a bit until I back up metal legend THOR next month...Tonight I started with a silent Arthur Lake comedy that sadly is missing its title so I haven't figured out the title on this beautiful old Standard 8mm kodascope print (1920's, kodascope, 2 x 200ft) which was followed by a classic sound film from the 50's called GOD'S LITTLE ACRE (1958, 5 x 400ft, Standard 8mm) that stars Robert Ryan, Tina Louise and many others.
