Well, there's 8 files :-) Laksmi was really bothered with this, so I felt bad about that. Myself, would love to see many more pictures from everyone. As you say, the more the better

Thanks again

Today I finally got around to check out a film I bought a few months ago ... Heartbeeps, Super 8 optical. Whole film fit on a 1200'. Nice to see a lot of familiar faces like Dick Miller, Randy Quaid, Paul Bartel and more

Yes it is. Super 8 optical. But it is not as sharp as the Aliens and Jurassic Park that someone is selling on the forum. That was impressive. My camera is not easy to keep focused

We had a nice show and checking out the recent Barry Wiles collection arrival.
This was a lovely film from it entitled 'Turn to the wind' all about windmills.
 -

I vaguely remember watching this on TV many moons ago although the colour was not as vibrant on TV as this super 8 print. The doc was made by Alan J. Willmott who really did a lovely job and pretty much produced the whole thing. The windmills were around Eastern England and the Society for the protection of Ancient Buildings were also involved in the film. Interesting this is.

I watched "Ciné follies", a French film made of extracts of pre-war musical films and news. You can see many great French artists of tha time. Many extracts are songs. I did enjoy all the film !

Tonight:

Precious Images (Reflections USA) followed by reels one and two of Carry On Camping.

"Carry On" is a print with a story: It was up on E-bay ending on a day we were in Brooklyn at an event in honor of a friend there. After it was over we stormed across town to our friend's apartment with minutes to go (My wife had to park the car: it was that tight!). My friend turned on her computer, an APPLE computer, which I had never worked on before, and in the final minute of the auction I got in the winning bid!

Later that night I found out I'd bought a film from our old friend Kevin F.

-it's a small world in Super 8!

Tomorrow: Reels 3 and 4.

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

Hi guys - well on Thursday 30th pre Halloween - I started with Topper Returns on Super 8 with the great Roland Culver followed by Derann's The Quatermass Experiment . Then on the actual night of the 31st - I started with digital projection - Abbott and Costello - The time of their lives - with a nice comedy ghost story - then back to super 8 with a Leon Errol short - Spooky Wooky and a trailer reel of hammer horrors - which included trailers for Quatermass and the Pit, The Devil Rides Out and Scars of Dracula amongst others - then I screened ivers 2x400ft of To the Devil a Daughter and finished off the evening with Derann's feature print of Dracula has Risen from the Grave - a beautiful print with booming sound and lovely colour - tonight for a brief encore - I intend to put on the 3x400ft of The Exorcist

Set up shop in my friend's front yard and ran The Little Rascals' HIDE AND SHRIEK, followed by the 200' Castle/Ken digests of THE DEADLY MANTIS, MAN MADE MONSTER and THE CREAMING SKULL. Then we got rained out.

Vidar,
Maybe I'm new at this but the colors in "Super Chicken" look really nice. It looks like a sharp print too. It seems that you had a great variety of subjects to see last night.
-Tim

P.S. As usual, I love seeing your photos!

Thank you. Continued the checking of some more from this collection.
Anchors Aweigh, 400' with good colors

 -

Show Boat, 400' also with quite good colors
 -
 -

Off-Road Racing, 200' with sound ... This wasn't as good and not too fun either
 -

Mexican Cat Dance, 200' silent starring Speedy Gonzales
 -

Snuffy Smith in Take Me To Your Gen'Rul on a 200' with sound. Not too bad, this was quite funny
 -

Also in this collection, a really bad quality wise one ... No titles, so if anyone know the name of the episode, please tell me. Also want to buy it with sound if anyone has it for sale. Sylvester and Tweety on 200' silent with a few seconds of sprocket damage (hate rentals)

Vidar , Didn't know THE LAST CANNIBAL WORLD existed on Super 8MM sound . Saw an "R" rated version some years ago , with the scene edited out of eating the guy's penis . It was still pretty disturbing , even having some gore and nudity edited .

Good for you Panayotis!!! [Cool] I love it when someone gets back to basics. Individual still pictures that appear to move when you turn the crank...it's magical. [Smile]

Back from the dead, and busted out the sadly faded COUNTESS DRACULA (1971, Super 8 Derann 4 x 400) after going to see Gone Girl in theatres, I saw a correlation...If only I could find a low fade print of this title since it has always been one of my favorite Hammers'.

Vidar - a very envious print of Time Machine you have there.

Thank you Janice,but,after all movies are "individual stills that appear to move when you turn the crank". The only "limit" in this case is that each movement is limited to four stills!

On Monday I watched DOWN TO EARTH (John Emerson), a breezy,relatively rare 1917 Douglas Fairbanks comedy,one of the many he did in the teens,before settling down with the big fictional heroes in the twenties (Zorro,D'Artagnan,Robin Hood etc). Co-written by Fairbanks,true to his motto "live healthy and laugh"(or something like that!),it is the story of a young individual who buys a sanitarium that feeds its rich patients with useless remedies and transports them to a "desert island",where he forces them to live completely naturally and exercising vigorously. About 80minutes long,at 16 fps,it is unpretentious,joyous and well made.I enjoyed it.In super 8.

Thanks, Osi. The Robin Hood print is the best I have in my collection. Time Machine is not as good, as it has green emulsion lines and some perforation damage. It has nice colors and I do think reel 2, 3 and 4 all has some perforation problems and reel 4 has the emulsion lines. Still was nice to see it and seller discounted it enough too :-)
