Dino..."An American Werewolf in London" is a classic for me. I don't have a film version, but do have the DVD. Seeing your screen caps...I have to watch it now! Thanks.

Had the family over for a Disney film night with Aladdin & Mary Poppins, both wonderful prints and enjoyed by all.

a few short reels of Standard 8 tonight first up was MOTHER GOOSELAND (1924, Kodascope 200ft) followed by a somewhat non-pc FELIX SAVES THE DAY (1922, Kodascope 200ft) and then finished it off with a very short excerpt from an unknown Billy Dooley film (1925, toy film 50ft)

Vidar What is the print like on Jessie James I wonder if it looks like mine mainly good colour with the odd faded looking bit. I thought it was quite a good edit for Ken Films.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

It's a bit faded, but looks like it's even all the way. It's not as red as the Nikon D3200 thinks it is, looks better on screen

Just got back from visiting Steve Osbourne in Kettering , Ohio .
You know , editor and publisher of THE REEL IMAGE .
He's got a BEAUTIFUL home theater set - up , complete with original theater seating and concession areas ! Very nicely decorated and HUGE screen with STEREO sound !
He screened MEN IN WHITE ( 3 ads for films , cars and movie production ) , JASPER AND THE WATERMELON MAN ( A George Pal Puppettoon that , by today's political standards , would be banned , in beautiful color ) ,TRAILERS of Georgio Moroder's METROPOLIS , The ORIGINAL trailer to STAR WARS and DIE HARD 4 .
DIAMONDS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND followed with Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe singing and dancing for a couple of GREAT songs in STEREO and BEAUTIFUL COLOR !
Then it was BOND in DIE ANOTHER DAY , the EXCELLENT COLOR & STEREO opening of the film , currently available for around 120.00 USD from Classic Home Cinema . I was VERY impressed !
And finally it was MY own home - edited version of JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS - THE SPECIAL EDITION ( I utilized the Derann 17 min. " Battle of Talos " , with complete opening film credits , editing in sequence the Columbia 4 - parters to make a 45 min. version ).
Next month Steve plans to do an out-door film show so bring your lawn chairs for a night of fun under the stars ! [Big Grin]

I just watched a beautiful optical sound print of the mid 80's version, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS thanks to Brian Hendel. No lines, clean and sharp and great sound; only about 20% color loss since it's supposed to be a dingy, urban setting. I'm not a fan of musicals, but I was in great company; didn't want to be a sour puss and enjoyed what to me the highlight of the film, Rick Moranis's, fickle, human blood eating plant! "I gave you sunlight..I gave you dirt, you gave me heartache..you gave me hurt.." Now I may just take up horticulture.

John I envy you...That is one that I would kill to have...How is the soundtrack, being that it is an optical one? Is it noisy? Would hate to miss all the fun of the songs...I am like you that I am not the biggest fan of musicals but that one I love, and love all the songs...If you ever want to sell let me know.. [Big Grin]

Little Shop is one of my favorite musicals too. Rick Moranis was a perfect Seymour. I've always thought my son would make a good Seymour too. He did perform a duet of "Suddenly Seymour" at the "Broadway Comes to Anaheim" show a couple of years ago.

Dino,acknowledging that my life might be in danger,I must admit that I, also, am in possession of an optical print of The Little Shop Of Horrors and that the sound is exellent,clear and without scratches [Wink]

Scope Shorts evening tonight,
Started with the 100ft promo of a Shot in the dark, then a 200 ft promo reel, starts with an ABC day set followed by The Battle of Britain promo and a long trailer to the brilliant Zulu
Both have really good colour, sound and very sharp image, (my pictures never do justice to super 8)
 -
 -
 -
 -
And I ended with part 5 to the scope feature Master and Commander.
This was a feature I was due to buy but personal circumstances at the time meant I had no choice but to pull out, this 5th reel which is the probably the best part with the big battle between the British ship lead by Captain Jack Aubrey,(Russell Crowe),and the bigger faster French ship. This part came up on a Derann list along with pt 2 which I also bought and sold on. Reel 5 stands on its own perfectly as an all action reel with an opening which gives you the understanding of what is about to happen and ends perfectly after the battles dead are buried at sea after prayers. The only thing missing is titles, it would have made a brilliant extract release. I consider myself lucky to have won this off one of Deranns lists, I expected it to have gone by the time I rang & the print is perfect & with stereo sound. Again the images here do not do it justice.

Janice,

Your son has a terrific voice! What a great clip....I wish it went on till the end of the song.

I also have a copy of Little Shop, however it's a magnetic sound print. It seems a customer of Derann's asked them to sound stripe an optical print and record the audio for him. Eventually I got a hold of it.

I think there's room for just one more film.....

Thanks for watching Doug and Clay and for the nice comments.

Wow Jason! You have the bug worse than me lol. Even I can usually get around 8 weeks or more out of a lamp ha ha.

I love "Once Upon A Mouse", fantastic quick moving summary of a lot of Sir Walt and his dedicated team's finest work. It's great I find to throw it on just before screening any Disney feature.

I have had Aladdin on this morning by way of paying tribute to the genius that was Robin Williams. Still cannot believe that he has took his own life..so very very sad.

Hi Andrew,
I do have the bug lol, but back to work on Monday so it will be weekend screenings from now on so it should cut the lamp usage down and a excellent film choice to remember the great Mr Williams.

Well Jason, like us all, I don't expect you would ever part with a single film that you cherish, however, should you ever fall out of love with this hobby of ours please please please (is that enough begging ha ha) consider me for your Mary Poppins print... I so regret selling back to Derann all those years ago now [Wink]

Yes Vidar, Nancy Allen was indeed a looker in her day. I have her in this and also Dressed to Kill where you get to see even more of Nancy's assets!

Oh and I nearly forgot the best of em all... Robocop. [Smile]

Just got a nice collection of films and started viewing them yesterday. Here's a picture of the Ivo Caprino films, a norwegian puppet master
 -

And some cartoons
 -

So happy to finally found those Caprino's, they're pretty rare even here in Norway. And also the Disney Pluto's Christmas Tree, which looks better on the screen than here. Superb colors

Here's a small video on youtube with Caprino's work
