Evan, its a real treat. I don't think you will be disappointed once you find your copy.

Steve, I've never seen that film. That looks like a great movie to watch on Super 8.

Quite a good session this evening.

My newest purchase Stepping On The Gas which was a silent film with accompanying sound, Tom and Jerry in "Posse Cat."
Then onto the 400'ers.... The African Queen, Prophecy, A Night To Remember and The Birds.

Thank goodness the nights are finally starting to draw in, here in the UK, so tonight really marks the start of my film watching season!

Last night I watched the 3x400ft Star Trek episode released by Canterbury Films "The Trouble with Tribbles".

My copy has gone red but I used a new lens cap filter to watch it.

Hi Tom Photiou

Yes Thank You - I still can't believe the titles on Super-8.
It's awesome.

Steve, I'm very jealous. Is this the print that recently sold on eBay? Maybe we bid against one another? Haha

I also have the Canterbury Tribbles: same film, same condition.

Last night: the first 1200 feet of The African Queen, tonight: the last 800 feet. (Only WE, measure movies in FEET!)

-wow! There was a marriage of opposites!

It's almost sacrilege to say so, but I wish they made a sequel just to see how it worked out!

Last night, the first 600ft of The Elephant Man, described as having a slight tint so it was £11.99 new from Derann (it is on Agfa colour stock)maybe slightly blue but with tungsten lamp looks fine. Tonight maybe reel 3 same price but very yellow tint. That really shows why Derann made a point of trying to get B&W stock for B&W releases.

Confessions of a Driving Instructor extracts 1 & 2 from Columbia. Rather faded (Eastmancolor) but better with a pale blue filter (Well, an improvised one using a cellophane sweet wrapper).
Strangely though part one had no narrator, part 2 did - frequently and annoyingly.

Last night, I watched THE GOOSE WOMAN on standard 8 (first proper outing for my Bolex 18-5). Been wanting to see this one for ages as I heard it's one of Kevin Brownlow's favourite silent films: I certainly wasn't disappointed. Louise Dessler was very good in it.

The film itself was mounted on 4 x 400ft reels, but I think it might have been originally released on 8 x 200ft reels (the second 400ft reel starts with 'Part 3' and the third 400ft reel says 'Part 5' etc). There's nothing on the leader to say who released it... does anyone know? The print was quite watchable despite the master for it being well worn.

If the sprocket area is black,all or in part,it is a Perry print. If transparent, it is from Milestone.

Thanks Panayotis. My copy of THE GOOSE WOMAN is as follows: the first two 400ft reels are clear around the sprockets, and the the last two 400ft reels are black around the sprockets. So it seems as though I have a hybrid print?

Finally finished my new anamorphic lens support (I'll post a picture later) so watched the 400ft scope cut down of Kidnapped (Michael Caine). A Walton print on 4S stock so good/great colours, plenty of greens in the Scottish hillsides, but a little contrasty for sunlit scenes.

Last night reel 2 of the 2x600 Derann "633 Squadron" LPP but lab fault, dark and a little orange on all but night scenes and the final title. Blue filter cured the orange and the darkness made the night scenes really dark and seem less "day for night" than with some films. A few scratches some from the master used but almost all action.

A very full Saturday evening,all on standard 8.We started with DONALD AND PLUTO, exellent copy and sound but turned to monochrome pink! FACE OF THE DEAD (1954),an old "Inner Sanctum" tv episode, put out by Derann in its early days,with Everett Sloane. THE WHOLE TRUTH (1958),a lightweight murder mystery with Stewart Granger,George Sanders,Donna Reed and Gianna Maria Canale,again with exellent picture and sound,put out by Powell,I believe.My composite print of Chaplin's THE RINK (Blackhawk+Thunderbird) and finished with THE COVER GIRL KILLER (1961). A British "B" police story with Harry H. Corbett. Plus a half hour intermission for "souvlaki",plus reel changes, this made a top five hour movie fest!

I saw Laurel and Hardy's "The Finishing Touch" last night.

I SAW it, yet did not show it.

My kid is going through his prints getting ready for CineSea and I noticed an R8 print of "The Finishing Touch", an L&H which I'd never seen.

-so I asked him about it and he showed it to me!

(You knew as soon as they wedged a rock under the back wheel of that truck that this was going to re-enter the story later!)
