I admire you, Mark! A friend of mine has that feature (Roger rabbit) and it's an Agfa film stock print and it was absolutely beautiful!

Hi Osi,
I had three prints of this at one time but I sold them and kept one, it was sealed until I opened it last night so like running a brand new print, i was in two minds whether to open but seemed daft not to, .Just running a few bits lately to check conditions as i may do another stall somewhere later in the yesr, Mark.

All prints should be used and enjoyed Mark I agree.
The Derann Disney prints really are brilliant.
I love em all. [Wink]

3 prints,..wow, that really is a Roger Rabbit fan! [Wink] [Smile]

It was a nice evening on Saturday night so we had another outdoor picture show, Peter Pan 16mm LPP print, looked great on the big screen.

I short Derann 'Scope evening. I started with Winter Jamboree colour good, but from an indifferent master and low sound. I followed that with the Big Parade 150ft sequence from Hello Dolly (I am missing this reel from the feature, this reel has some opening titles and closing credits) great picture on Agfa, I won't comment of the sound as I hadn't turned down from the previous reel and it was LOUD. I lowered the volume for the final one the motor cycle/truck chase from Terminator II equally good colour and great sound though a few white splices fro the master again an Agfa print.

No pictures, I was too busy watching.

Last month I got two prints of Sunday River Productions prints of the Norfolk and Western Railroad operating in Virginia coal country in the 1950s and I watched them last night.

They are great prints in wonderful shape. I have a feeling the source footage was 16mm Kodachrome and they are beautiful. It is obviously amateur footage: every so often there is an orange overexposure on one edge of frame from a little unintended light getting at the film.

Even if you set aside the trains, these are like a window into day to day life in 1950s small town America: the clothes, the cars, people still traveling by passenger train in the first place.

There you have 1950s people standing on the platform waiting for their train to pull in. The man is wearing suit and tie, The woman is in a dress. They both have hats on. They are about to take a journey in a smoky, sooty, coal-dusted vehicle and they are better dressed than I am at most job interviews!

It looks a little high maintenance to me, but I have a feeling they'd think we're slobs!

I might,

The only thing wrong about this for general audiences it is silent: this could push it out of prime-time to say the least!

We just watched "Silver Dream Racer" (400ft scope Derann) last night. I had completely forgotten that it was in our collection. In my opinion, this was a case of a digest being MUCH better than the full feature, (I'm sure that there are other opinions, of course, and I respect thiers as well),
and this was a very nice LONG 400ft release, (almost coming to the very edge of the 400ft reel, probably about 21 or so minutes.

We also watched the scope cartoons ...

Bearly Asleep (Disney/Donald)
Bar B. Cue Brawl (M.G.M. Tom and Jerry)

The MGM 2x400ft of songs from Singin' in the Rain (no plot at all) that I bought from Phil in the 4 for £25 bargain bin at his sale weekend. Slightly brown blacks but otherwise as good colour as any of these MGMs. Strangely the last song (Lucky Star) looked even better with fully black blacks.

Tonight my girlfriend and I watched my 16mm print of Invasion Of The Saucermen, the classic cartoon Coal Black And De Sebben Dwarves, one of my horror/science-fiction trailer reels and a Polly Moran short titled Oh Duchess. As soon as the weather cools down a bit I'll be having outdoor showings. [Smile]

Last night was a bit of a tribute night with the anniversary of Elvis' death, can you believe it was 39 years ago? Trailers first were Easy Come Easy Go, G.I Blues, Girl Happy,Double Trouble and Viva Las Vegas followed by a 400ft Paradise Hawaiian Style and 400ft Roustabout then the last 600ft of the Elvis on Tour feature, Mark.

I'm still working my way through the CHC sale purchases, now only one to go but watched Calamity Jane Derann full feature on low fade stock, time went faster than I thought it would.

Good picture quality scratch on reels 1 & 3, but at the screen mask area so easily hidden. I assume this was a print shown on 2 machines with crossovers as the box has cue lines written on it for preparing the projectionist. There were a couple of what looked like faults from the 3 strip to colour negative conversion, which I assume all prints pre-digital combination had, an occasional colour split fringing for a second and the red flowers painted on Calamity's door "floating" between the green stems. But it shows how good the print was that this was noticeable.

Last night I watched the 1x600ft Derann cutdown of The Neverending Story.This is one of those Derann releases that really shows scope at its best on 8mm film.

Alan, I was really amazed by the third picture in the collage that I posted. The detail in the creature was amazing on my scope screen.

Last night I watched a few prints that I just acquired.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind(400ft Japanese digest)
Pinnochio(Derann trailer)
Our Gang "Love Business"(Blackhawk 400ft)

The CETK print had faded slightly purple since it's on Fujifilm but it was still enjoyable. The pinnochio trailer was a joy to see. I would love to find the Derann feature.

I really enjoyed watching Our Gang. This was my first Blackhawk I have ever bought and now I find myself wanting to collect all of "Our Gang".

Jason, that Neverending Story print looks great! I am on the lookout for one myself, and your screenshots only make me want it more!
