Standard 8 continued gloriously on Sunday, with STALINGRAD,a Russian documentary released by Paramount in 1943. Approxsimately one hour long with very good picture and sound (bombs,for the most part !),courtesy of my friend Yanis. Followed by Hitchcock's silent classic, THE LODGER. A most enjoyable weekend!

LITTLE TOOT / SUZY THE BLUE COUPE

A few weeks ago, viewing :

- LITTLE TOOT (Nice Disney short), Adrew Sisters Music , very good animated item (Probably Derann, no fade at all)

- SUZY THE BLUE COUPE (Lovely Disney Short). This is not Derann , but good anyway (JEFF FILM may be, No fade too)

Both recommended

A super 8 optical film : Le grand blond avec une chaussure noire (The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe), sadly the soundtrack is in English. As many Optical super 8 films, the colours are faded but with a filter, it is well watchable. Although, I encountered some technical problems during the projection, it was a good moment. The film is a box office success from the seventies and there are many well known actors playing in it.

Last night I watched a Beatles trailer reel. It had trailers from A Hard Days night, Help, Yellow Submarine, and Let it Be. The colors looked great.

BUGSY MALONE ,

A few weeks ago, I was Viewing this very good Alan Parker movie.
This Derann (Rank) print is great.

The funny story combining a charming "Ambiance" will delight everybody.

This Derann print has crossed the age without noticeable fading.....

Highly recommended

Last night, I watched Till the Clouds Roll By. It`s an MGM musical with performances from stars such as Judy Garland, Angela Lansbury, and Frank Sinatra.

I have it mounted on 3x1200 ft spools. The source material for my Super 8 print had a lot of wear and scratches along with soft focus but the colors looked decent.

Came across an old 16mm print of "White Mane" a 1953 winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes. The print took a lot of cleaning [Roll Eyes] plus a new leader etc, but in the end the work put in was worth it. Although I did not screen it last night, I did a few weeks ago.

Hello Panayotis. Funny, I also have the Film Office edition but on 16mm, silent and double perfs. A great print ! But I wonder why they did not bother to release it complete or at least in a sound version.

Wow Jason! I've never seen a good color print of that feature! Good job on that find.

Concerning "Bugsy Malone", I've never seen the Derann magnetic sound print of this until now! Very nice "glow" to the image. Is the color naturally leaning towards that yellowish orange?

I only ask as I have an optical sound feature print of this, and those scenes don't have that color spectrum, but a much more natural color to it.

I wish this website allowed downlaods of thier pics. [Frown]

We watched thr Universal 8 digests of "Smokey and the bandit" (pin sharp), and "Slapshot". Slapshot was interesting, as it had absolutely mint condition color, but even with a perfect print, there were definitely some short sequences in thier negative, that obviously had very bad color grading to them.

Thanks Panayotis

That was interesting regarding it being once available on Standard 8 and the film book.

Tonight it was viewing my latest acquisition for the first time.
"The Lady Vanishes" directed by Alfred Hitchcock which was the Walton 4x 400'version of the 1938 movie.
It is always nice to see a film on the big screen at home for the first time that one has never seen before.
The picture was good,but the sound was a bit too soft for my liking.However,it has passed so will be staying in the collection for now.

Alex,in the fifties and early sixties Film Office released,in silent standard 8,9-5 and 16,quite a few condensations of french and american features,both original sound and silent ones,in three to six reels. From the mid-sixties on and the coming of super 8 sound,they phazed out most of them,excepting Laurel and Hardy features which were released in (french) sound.
Graham,you may also find LE BALLON ROUGE,in super 8 color sound,although again shortened by approximately 8 minutes.My copy is exellent in both picture and sound. Both films were shown in restored copies several years ago, in a double program. Here is an ad for the rerelease,plus the filmbook for THE RED BALLOON  -  -

I tried to scale back on my film watching over the summer months this year. But now that the sun is setting early once again I have been pulling out some films.
Monday evening we watched a few shorts. We started with The Great Train Robbery (Tinted and soundtrack)
 -
 -
Then we watched Those Awful Hats (No Pictures)
Next was Felix The Cat, April Maze
 -
And finished it off with Little Black Sambo
 -
Then tonight we watched How To Steal A Million.

Yes Janice, I had never seen this movie before I got it on film. I rerecord it from Spanish to English. It is probably my favorite movie I own. Such a good plot and great actors and actresses.
Hey Osi, yeah it isn't too bad. It is a Niles print surprisingly enough. The kids love it and I was glad to find the color/sound version.

Saturday Night:

4x400' Carry on Camping.

-not a great print, but the movie is near and dear to my heart for several reasons, so it will always have a place on my shelves.

Working my way through BFCC purchases. Doctor Zhivago (going a bit pink, but filter helped) and one that gave me more shivers and hands over eyed moments than any Halloween or horror film the Collectors Club 400ft of "Feet First" by Harold Lloyd.

As I put on the Halloween thread "The Mad Doctor" B&W Mickey Mouse but also the MGM cartoon "Bad Luck Blackie". My bad luck is that at the end the print or neg must have jumped a track in the printer and the last 5 seconds and picture is 50% black and 50% out of rack but as it fitted the film I didn't send the print back to Derann.
