Congratulations all round Lee. You created the hottest film forum topic in history.....ever!

I'm off so I will be marking the occasion with one or two of my new films on the day.

Well done once again Lee! [Smile] [Smile]

Two from the very top drawer on Super 8mm there Mark!
I am currently half way through screening my newly acquired Dumbo print.

I hope to be able to locate a print of Chicken Run myself one day.
Another high up on my wish list nowadays.

Marked the 8th anniversary of this thread with a nostalgia show with the old Eumig projecting some of my oldest 8mm movies including a Star Wars segment, and some early Std 8 filming efforts.

Gave a first full run out of my two newest acquisitions. Disneys Dumbo and Poltergeist II.

Two opposite ends of the viewing spectrum but both equally meritable as a find on Super 8mm nowadays.

Alan, thanks, as far as Cat Ballou as a super 8 feature I do not know if it was or not. It is too bad the trailer has lost its color because it is a very good trailer. It's got action, laughs, nice scene selections.

Hi Guys,

Cat Ballou - is around as a 400ft cutdown and I have seen the 5x400ft Columbia release - I believe it is an ex rental print - it comes up occasionally - but I've missed out on several occasions

Had a load of Ferrania films in for transfer so had a look at some of those. One Std 8mm film turned out to be the demolition of a photo shop [Frown] Hope the Eumigs were removed in time!
Splicer will be busy with a few of these films and keep me busy as well.

As the Flying Scotsman was due to leave London today we had a bit of a railway evening which included Night Mail the all time classic.

PT2 of the show was a little tribute to Dougie as we watched Raiders of the Lost Ark with all its amazing cinematography.

Beautiful screenshot there Lee!

Scotsman ground to halt I believe leaving the station due to all the hubbub of enthusiasts taking photographs!

Dominique2013 "I would be curious to know how many digests have been released in super 8 with optical sound. It seems that this sound system has been more widespread then what I thought."

I have a couple of releases from Derann of Pathe Pictorials I think they did about 5 in total. Powell Films did a couple, P.M. Films did a trailer reel and a few more. Even recall Disney did 1 or 2. That's from the deep memory cells.

That "Gruesome Twosome" cartoon has to be just about the sharpest, absolutely best looking Warner Brothers cartoon, ever released! There are other striking examples, but I was shocked in the best way as to how good it looked. Only the bluray is actually better, in my opinion ...

but the super 8 is actually better as it is, well super 8! (however, I have been told that I am biased towards celluloid, but I have no idea where THAT comes from!) [Smile]

Cat Ballou. This was listed for sale from Jeff Films many moons ago. Bye Bye Birdie was another one.

Ghost Train is oh so funny Mark. A dear friend of mine now gone sorry to say used to live next door to Arthur and so many stories.

Ran up the GS to screen a new arrival FORCE 10 FROM NAVARONE. Its a 2X400 col sound and with a entertaining German sound track due for dubbing. Really enjoyed it, although the colour is wandering its still a great watch.

I remember watching Ghost Train as a kid Lee, fond memories there, also when I drive through Aylesbury there is a factory we pass that make Askeys ice cream cones/wafers, for years I'd drive by and say "I thank you" when the kids were small they would shout it out too, Mark

Lee, is that 2X400ft letterboxed or a scope print? Another one I never knew existed. I have the super 8 optical feature of that, (flat), but I was lucky enough to luck into a great color copy, but it reveals just how shoddy at times, the printing process was for these optical features as, once the plane is shot down and they are drifting down in their parachutes and landing, that whole 4 minutes or so has absolutely TERRIBLE color, where the rest of the film is just lovely to look at.

Thanks for the info, Lee. it's a film that got massacred when it originally came out, which is a shame, as it's pretty good as an actioneer, taken on it's own.

Tonight: Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony from Fantasia, both parts from Derann brought together on a 600 Foot reel.

I learned something about myself a few years ago. I keep talking about some reel or other and calling it a "favorite". It seems at least where films are concerned I may not be very monogamous.

-but this one just might be my favorite among the favorites. It looks wonderful up on screen and the music is awesome!

Watched "Flight of the Phoenix" digest. This was the film I had just gotten and was screening when the lamp in my Elmo went out. Believe it or not...I have never seen this movie. After watching the digest (which is very well edited) I will now search out the full length version.
