My Saturday night menu this week was....

Rollerball- James Caan (2x 400'on 1x 600')(which appears to have been edited in the correct sequence by a previous owner....at least this version seemed to flow ok)

The Eiger Sanction - Clint Eastwood / George Kennedy ( 1x 400')

Airport 1975 - Charlton Heston / George Kennedy (1x 400')

The Poseidon Adventure - Gene Hackman (1x 400')

.

The Lost World. When I filmguarded the film, I noticed that the stock was not like on other films. Difficult to explain, I would say that it was "loose". There is no vinegar smell but something is definitly wrong. The two first third ran correctly but I had a "sharp/out of focus/sharp/out of focus..." issue for the end of the film. That was, however not too bad. I noticed that the film was not firmly wound on the take up reel and when I manually rewound the film the same thing happened. I will let it like that to let it breath and rewind it more firmly later. To be sure my Sankyo with its 1.0 lens was not in cause, I watched a Pathé Pictorial film and it was sharp from the beginning to the end. The film was firmly wound after the projection and after rewinding.

Hi Janice

"The Flight of the Phoenix" is one of my all time favorite films. I remember watching at the cinema way back in the 1960s. The digest I have now got, is the one I sold as new back in the 1970s. I put my name on the leader and after being bought and sold by others that copy has now come home. [Smile]

The actual full feature film itself would be an excellent addition. I have it only on DVD, "The Flight of the Phoenix" has a outstanding cast including actor George Kennedy who died just lately. Also during the making the stunt flier was killed when the aircraft crashed, his name and tribute to him is mentioned during the end credits.

Lastly [Roll Eyes] we ran a 35mm print of the later version called "Flight of the Phoenix" 2005 starring Dennis Quaid, its also a very good movie in its own right.

Unbelievable Graham that you got your original film reel back. That's a great story in itself [Smile]

Dom, a legendary film here it is. [Smile]

A look back to the dawn of Standard 8 full length features with this one. Had the pleasure of working with Diana in my youth and what a wonderful lady she was.
 -

Early Derann full feature release and not so many years after it was produced. [Cool]

Things have been a little quiet on the Collectors Club front of late so we watched
'Turn Of The Wheel' A look at locomotives being taken to pieces amongst other things with the Elmo going full steam.
 -
Followed by 'Sad Clowns of Hollywood' which we found funny.
Also another Collectors Club reel 'Sherlock Holmes Trailers'

My copy of "Turn of the Wheel" is from Derann. A great "Look at Life" showing how things were changing in transport. It now shows further changes I doubt the Crich tramway museum could easily "hire a horse from a nearby farmer" to haul a tram as they did them.

Yes Brian bit of an eye opener how much history we have lost with the grinders going full blast. Interesting film and quite a document really in itself, produced mid 60's I believe. I like to hear Tims voice on it also from The Mummy's Shroud another popular 8mm film. [Wink]

Watched the Universal 8 400ft of Duel, nice cut down. Despite being on Kodak SP all the colours are there so I suspect the overall orange tint is reflected from the ground and dust on location, the sky is certainly blue - not much vegetation to show the green though.

Popeye champion de boxe, a Film Office release. Colours are still great but sadly the sound is in English.

I've just watched a film from the silent era that I regard as a masterpiece : The Cat And The Canary. My copy has a soundtrack but as I hadn't watched the film since a long time I didn't remember if it had to be projected at 18 or 24 fps. I decided to try at 18 fps but without modifying the two blades shutter position of my Beaulieu before being sure. The speed was 18 but for an unknown reason, there was no flickering on the screen (although it is visible without film in the projector) so I didn't have to change anything (and I got an extra 33% lighting).

That is a very unusual scenario Dominique.
I always have to go back to three blades when I watch 18fps films on these.

Not a long night this time....

Just "The Hindenburg" 2x 400' and "1941" 2x 400' the Spielberg comedy.So annoying how the intro's to the sections are in 4:3 and the rest 1.85:1 Very off putting but an amusing digest.

Saturday Night:

Derann's Fantasia 2000 all the way from beginning to end.

I had a small technical issue with this one I needed to solve: the print is letterboxed, and maybe pillarboxed too, so with the machine in the usual spot it kind of hung in the middle of the screen even zoomed wide all the way.

-back it up a couple of feet?

-problem solved!

 -

Having it in the masking all the way around makes it look much better!

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

It's an amazing film.

In the last section (Firebird Suite), nature is serene: the Elk and the Water Nymph cavort happily in the cool forest and all is well with the world....

-until in the space of two or three frames the entire screen is filled with FIRE!!!!

When I got it, I'd never seen this movie before, so there I am laying on the couch, maybe 5 minutes from rewinding and going to bed.

I had a drink in my hand...I almost wound up wearing it!

(Never watch this late at night!)

I love a late nights viewing myself and will be doing just that later this evening.

Carrie, Derann 2x400ft edited in order. On Kodak SP unfortunately but not very faded (black is now medium dark brown) one extract is lighter than the other, but I think it was always like that - however all the colours are still there.
