I screened recently (but not today and not the same day) several Charlie Chaplin shorts dated 1915. I didn't mention that here because they are French releases with the title in French. What is interesting is that they have an optical soundtrack and run at 18 fps. All films are complete versions, unlike releases from other companies. Tonight, I watched The Golem. My copy has musical (magnetic) soundtrack and runs at 18fps. I don't know what stock it is but the running time is long given the few room the film takes on the spool ! If, like me, you like silent films, don't miss this one.

Last night I watched an 800 foot compilation reel of songs from Singin' In The Rain I bought at CineSea last April.

Maybe I should be ashamed to admit it, but I've never actually seen the whole movie. Since it's one of the major musicals I know most of the songs, I just don't know the story (...yet).

It's a classic Super-8 question: is it better to see a digest or extract without seeing the Feature first or not?

I think some day soon we will find out here!

I thought it's a rhetorical question, but then again a little rhetoric never hurts! (-especially on discussion forums!)

I spent the weekend working on lamp conversions on 3 projectors. Testing each gave me lots of opportunity to play some films I haven't seen in awhile.

Chalie Chaplin (400ft Silent)
 -

Buster Keaton (400ft Silent)
 -

Bosko's Spooks (50ft Silent)
Maybe considered politically incorrect today... but my brother and I loved this little cartoon and use to make my Mom play it forward and backward over and over again.

Tom & Jerry, Blue Cat Blues (is that the most depressing T&J ever???) and the 400ft of Swashbuckler - also know as the Scarlet Buccaneer but due to fade his shirt is now more pink than scarlet.

Both Animex 'scope prints, both very faded in density but not yet too pink.

Halleluijah I'm a Tramp. I hadn't screened this film for a long time. It is mounted on a 600 mt/2000 ft spool manufactured from a 16 mm one. I realized that it was of poor quality comparing with the spools made by Julio in Spain (sadly moving to another business) so I put the film on a Spanish spool. I Filmguarded the film and that had been necessary as it was dirty. It was nice to see Al Jolson and Harry Langdon in this early musical film.

I like Harry Langdon. Someone should make a biopic about him.

Tonight, Polly had her friend Archie over who has never seen a Laurel and Hardy picture! We put that right with Polly's favourite Blackhawk print of Busy Bodies and a (fairly rough) print of Hog Wild. They SCREAMED with laughter throughout. Interspersed that with a couple of Walton T&J's: Yankee Doodle Mouse and finally Johann Mouse to end with as it is a much calmer T&J than usual! Archie's dad arrived close to the end and even he was transfixed by the ST1200 purring away. Good fun.

Great stuff Stuart, keep up the good work! [Wink]

3 brilliant titles viewed again there earlier Mark!
End of Days must surely have been one of the very last 600ft releases by Derann.

Another batch of 600ft cutdowns that I haven't seen for a while, The Fog stereo/scope, The Happiest Days of Your Life, The Hurricane Express (I'm sure John Wayne got paid per knock out in this as at least 3!!) All good fun and got a few more to dig out, Mark

More great viewing there Mark. [Smile]

Wouldn't it be great if one day there was a one off exhibition dedicated to all of Dereks lifetime of great work he carried out here for everyone.
Snippets of the films themselves to view, clips from the brilliant Armchair Odeon series featuring Derek, his auctions, his home cinema and his work environment.
I would volunteer for the Musical & Disney exhibition stalls.

Anyone for the Horror stall? Ha ha

Now that really would be something!
What a day that'd be!! [Smile] [Wink]

With my wife out on a rare social occasion with her daughter, I was left home alone for once, this Saturday evening.

It was a bit of a mish mash. Early on, before the sun went down, I reduced a recent purchase I had made of George Formby's "No Limits" from a large 1600' spool back to its original 4x 400' - so the new blank head and tails had to be inserted,too.Then there were the new boxes to label up ( CHC's finest)! Was intending to lubricate it but time moved on, so its premier will have to wait.

Instead, I viewed another recently purchased and recently cleaned film, G.I.Blues with Elvis Presley on 5x 400' - A very slightly faded,but unscratched Viacom print with excellent sound.

An enjoyable evening!

A man after my own heart Melvin!
G.I. Blues is one of my Super 8mm favourites also! [Smile]

As you say, a tiny amount of fade, but nothing to spoil the film as a spectacle and Pocket Full Of Rainbows, One Of Those Days and Wooden Heart of course, simply make this a wonderful charming and charismatic film from a more innocent bye gone era. [Smile]

I bet the wife's plum sociables will become a more regular event in your household now! [Smile]

Let's have it one more time tonight. You can't get too much of a good thing!

Well had a moment of madness and ran a feature film last night, one of my favourite films Reach for the Sky starring Kenneth More, it has to be 10 years since I ran it and a fairly good Walton print too

I like G.I Blues also, the early 60s Elvis flicks are the better of the bunch, well it was going to be a hit as one of the biggest stars at the time comes out the Army and (supposedly) makes a film about his tine spent in there!!

Andrew, do you mean the song Did ja ever? Mark

I did indeed Mark. [Big Grin] [Wink]

They are there to be enjoyed Mark and 10 years inbetween screenings is simply Toooo long!
I'm glad you enjoyed projecting it though. No madness in that, that's what we have them for. [Smile] [Wink]
