They're allright, though look a bit less red than the Nikon camera makes them look. I was very lucky with my last purchase, 100+ films pf 200' and 400's with an average of GBP 2.50 is just as you say it, luck :-)

The person who sold me that collection, might have another box I am suppose to buy if he finds it back, so crossing my fingers

Andrew, the projector to screen distance is 25ft I use a f1.1 xenovaron. The screen before was a 16:9 125inch which I used for my 3d dlp projector and was getting tired of having to adjust the zoom lens for scope so l made the jump to a scope screen
The new screen is laced on a frame with black masking and has made a big difference in viewing enjoyment

Hey gang - it's all very interesting - the technical aspects of our equipment - even though I don't quite understand all of it - being a collector and fan of the genre - since pre-teen hood -I do like to share just exactly WHAT I've screened recently ( as the ORIGINAL post suggests ) so stating that I will continue -
LAST NIGHT WAS :
THIS ISLAND EARTH ( UNIVERSAL 8 400' , SLIGHT PINKING BUT EXCELLENT SOUND )
ALIEN ( KEN FILMS 400' , EXCELLENT SOUND AND PRINT QUALITY )
DRACULA , PRINCE OF DARKNESS ( COMPLETE FEATURE , SLIGHTLY BROWNED BUT STILL A GREAT PRINT )
THE BEATLES FIRST USA CONCERT ( 400' REEL 2 OF 3 , GREAT SOUND AND PICTURE QUALITY AS BEST COULD BE )
STAR WARS ( A 600' COMBINED PRINT , WITH SCENES IN ORDER TO MAKE A GREAT 20 MIN. EXTRACT , COLOR AND SOUND EXCELLENT )
QUO VADIS ( A NEW 200' PRINT , UNOPENED , BUT WAS DARK , I DON'T KNOW WHY )
WITCHFINDER GENERAL ( DERANN FILMS 400' DIGEST , IN 2 PARTS , GREAT COLOR AND SOUND )
Thanks to Steve Osbourne for some of the for-mentioned prints !
Anybody out there got any Vincent Price prints for sale ?
I collect Price super 8MM sound films , as opposed to Price DVD's or Blu-rays .
Please let me know ; I'll certainly give you a fair "Price" for them !
Thanks guys....and gals ,
Dave

Vidar I just love to watch those Disney extracts. What a thrill it was when there was no video, and you could buy those films. Then show them on your 6ft screen. I still enjoy watching them.

A great one was The Love Bug. And thanks to Derann's Derek I own some of them as full features.

I cannot fathom why two Disney packaged movies as Match of The Century and The Beautiful Briny have mixed up endings where at the end of the second one, the character of King Leonidas turns into a rabbit on the wrong reel of film.

The good thing about the silent and sound Mary Poppins is that the silent has footage that the sound doesn't.

But I don't understand when Mary Poppins sings into the mirror on the silent edition is not included on the sound version where it would be more appropriate?

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great

The Disney's were released at separate times and were done as self contained extracts. Remember at that time video was rare.

I would think that most people who bought these films moved to video very quickly. A friend who had a basic projector just used to show his films to family and friends, he never bought a splicer just showed the films as they came.

Hugh's "paradise" film looks spot on Vidar, well done! Cumbria's climate serves film preservation really well it would seem!

Thank you. It's fair to say, Hugh is a safe person to deal with :-) I now look forward to The Hindenburg, The Incredible Shrinking Woman, The Electric Horseman and The Jerk, which I also bought from him

Some great buys there Vidar! Your copy of "The Jerk" is probably one of only a few left with no colour fade reportedly. I would have liked this again myself, having had a new copy once, but you beat me to it....Lucky Bugger! Ha ha [Wink]

Ps: It's a real fun watch and well edited for a 2x400 mini-feature.

Great shots as always, Vidar!

Vidar,the title is TARZAN'S FIGHT FOR LIFE.I recently acquired a complete 8 mm copy of this one from Spain.Reddish and in spanish but one of the fine Gordon Scott adventures.(One of the rare instances I broke my rule of not buying dubbed films)!

Anybody know that western up there too? It's called on the box "Mordet på Gullgraeverne" in swedish and meaning Murder on the Golddiggers, which I assume isn't the correct title

It also has a number 1631 on it and on the side it says Pellicule Ininflammable and it's in a Film Office box

The western is "Le Meurtre du Chercher d'Or",which most probably is an episode from the "Stories of the Century" tv series of the mid-fifties,and most probably the episode "Wild Bunch of Wyoming".Do you recognise any of the actors in it? It stars Jim Davis and featured are Joe Sawyer and Slim Pickens. Film Office had a long list of one and two reel cutdowns,mainly from three tv series: the aforementioned,"The Adventures of Kit Carson" and "Hopalong Cassidy".

Thanks, really awesome that you guys can find info when there's so little to work with. I will rewatch and see if I can see Slim Pickens, which is probably the only one I'd recognize

Will also try to take some face pictures
