Andrew. I did... and still can't see any. Probably my dilapidated equipment. However, I did google him and found some pics there (including a superb Meridian TV item on his home cinema on You Tube)so, yes, I can now put a face behind the name,thank you. If my memory serves me right, he presented the Derann auction at Blackpool for a year or two following Derek's passing?

Absolutely correct Melvin. I'm glad through the perils of adversity you arrived at your conclusion here Melvin.

I tried my very best for you here Melvin, but as usual, there is a minefield of barricades to overcome!!! [Wink]

Tonight, a very mint Blackhawk "Long Fliv the King": spoils of the weekend in Wildwood!

-nice print: cut of the leader makes me think I'm the first to ever watch it.

-odeur makes me think it wasn't from that famous "smoke free home"!

-do believe I'll leave the cover off the box a few days! (...COUGH!!!)

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

Live Ghost. I saw this Laurel and Hardy film at Argenteuil where it has been projected in 16 mm and was Lucky to find a super 8 copy at the 9.5 Sprinf Fair, recently in London.

I screened some what I bought as odd reels (well 1,2,3,5) of Dracula Has Risen From The Grave. Reels 1&2 marked dark (it is mainly at night anyway so no problem), 3 Faulty stripe and 5 OK but stripe no to good. Bought from Derann at conventions for bargain prices. I'm not sure of its origin as titles are in German but as on Agfa 1S and 4S the picture has no faded at all and the colour is very good.
I enjoyed this with a bottle of 2006 Fullers Vintage ale, 8.5% so that has kept well also. I wonder if there are any odd reel 4s out there.

I've just watched The Fugitive (Dieu est mort), a Film Office edition (in French). I mounted the 5 400 ft/120 mt spools on a big specially manufactured for the Beaulieu spool, so I had projection without breaks.

Last night we had my Mom out for Mothers Day and showed this wonderful "Singing in the Rain" compilation I bought from Gary Crawford at CineSea. It is edited together from two digests and features most of the songs from the feature.

It was an appropriate choice: the feature was released the year my parents were married.

-I've had my eye on this one on Gary's table for at least a year. It's a shame I waited so long to buy it!

I made last night a Superman night.

I watched two faded 200ft Fleisher Superman cartoons released by Red Fox. As well as the Superman 2 2x600ft in Scope released by Derann.

Here are a few screenshots from Superman 2.

Great screenshots there Jason, i think i will put ours on at the weekend, that 2 x 600ft is a very good edit and we have the extra 200ft that was sold separately edited in by the previous owner. [Big Grin]

Beautiful screenshots there Jason! [Smile]

Tom, I wish I had the extra Superman 2 200ft that Derann released.
Andrew, I also like that final diner scene.

It would be interesting if someone released a 400ft Superman 2 "Donner Cut" selected scenes. I might be tempted to use it to make my own "Donner cutdown".

Peter, I`ve only seen the 1960s remake of One Million years BC. I will have to find a copy of the silent film to watch now.

yes same as Andrews ours is made up of the the 2x600, the full title sequence and the diner scenes, i have seen this 200 footer turn up now and again, i think that opening as the camera zooms in with that music by Ken Thorn,(he was instructed to re-work the music from the first superman film by John Williams),really sets this film up, its a great fanfare. BTW, he also did the music for Hannie Caulder, unfortunately he died in 2014.

Michael, I have been thinking about picking up that Mr Magoo film. Thanks for sharing some screenshots from it.

This is part of the treasure I found at Cinesea a few weeks ago. I finally found sometime to screen it, so I thought I would share some pictures from my Derann feature of "First Men in the Moon". It was Ray Harryhausen`s only film that was done in scope.

Reel 2 of “The Ten Commandments” odd reel (I don’t know how many extras were printed but it’s the only reel that shows up on its own) on Kodak Sp (though there was the legend EKC31 as well, which shows no signs of fade (divine intervention?)

And the 400ft extract from “Please Sir” from Walton on Agfa 2S that I bought at their closing down sale marked on the box as “new neg 23-11-78.

Two Columbia digests,without too much annoying narration: Holiday with Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn and Mysterious Island.Two rare curiosities:A promo (?) for Those Magnificet Men in Their Flying Machines which is in essence a five minute condensation of the film and an even shorter (50 ft) "making of..." Lawrence of Arabia which Columbia released in a color/silent version only.And another curiosity: A 1926 silent 15 episode serial, Daredevil Jack with Jack Dempsey,condenced to a 10 episode one,totalling 16 minutes!
