Having returned from my first BFCC (and as it is now dark early enough here in 'blighty') - I decided (last Saturday) to have my first screening-session since returning to this wonderful pastime - some 25 years since I last projected any films. At least I remembered how to thread the projector! [Wink]

As on my very first screening-session, way back on Christmas morning 1978 - I ran for myself:

Easy Street 400' - Heritage with music-track that I had just bought that morning at the BFCC and

A Night in Casablanca - 400' Mountain Digest.

In lieu of the L&H Flying Deuces Mountain Digest - I instead ran a recent eBay purchase - Star Wars - 400' Ken Digest

I Can't really comment on the condition of any of them, as until I get a proper screen sorted out, I had to watch them (as on that first occasion) on my bedroom wall! [Eek!]

A decent screen is now a matter of urgency!!

Ali.

After Rosemary's Baby (in French :-), I screened two nice little jewels found last Saturday at the BFCC : Melody Maker (a musical with Sammy Fain singing) and The Golden Days Of Musical (Gus Elen, Lily Morris and Gracie Fields). I ended with another film bought from Classic Home Cinema (also at the BFCC) : Weathered Melodie. It's an early German cartoon with insects around an old Gramophone. One of the insects managed to get sound from the record. A nice cartoon, probably not easy to found on 35 mm as the beginning (the first seconds) is wel used (it is from the original neg as this film is a new release from CHC).

Here's is a rarity from me ... SCREENSHOTS! One of my latest acquisitions, "The Adventures of Robin Hood", which finally went down enuf in price for me to afford it! Please note, this is not from my own screening of the print, (as I take TERRIBLE screenshots), but these are from the auction of this very print that i now own, so enjoy! This is the Red Fox printing of this title, on AGFA film stock (not the bluish L.P.P. Derann print), and the screenshots do not do justice to how nice and sharp this print is. This print also has the luxury of having english on one track, and german on the other track!

Thanks 4 the help with the screenshots, Doug!

Nice print Osi, I have this but it's not as good as this one.

Last night I watched two features, City Heat optical sound which still has nice colour and Jungle Book which i bought recently at the Ealing do, nice to get back to watching features again, enjoyed them both, Mark.

I have City heat too! It was a very good printing on what appears to be low fade film stock, not a hint of color fade!!

Mine has faded slightly, but only towards Brown, not pink.
Plenty of all colours still present though and those colours still look quite vibrant, just a predominant tinge of the Brown colouring throughout.

I agree Osi, looks more 16mm than super 8, the best optical feature I had was A Fish Called Wanda, that looked lovely, Mark

It's one of my top 3 Optical prints still is Wanda. Both for colour and print quality. Another is Lethal Weapon. Still looks as good as the first day I got it,for colour. Lovely prints, both of these.

Another optical sound feature starring Sylvester Stallone in Over the Top, haven't seen this in years so nice to view it again, colours not as good as the recent City Heat I watched but still not too bad, sound was very clear for optical. Dug out and watched my Raiders of the Lost Ark, probably one of my oldest films I've owned, colours still look amazing and glorious stereo, great cutdown and ebay seems to be having quite a few copies lately so grab one whilst you can, Mark

The Card, bought at the BFCC. I respooled the 4x400 ft/ 120 mt parts on a large spool and watched it with my Beaulieu which has not moved from its place since yesterday night.

There are too many cine related items that are already permanently displayed everywhere (due to room shortage), Andrew :-)
I've just watched two newly acquiered 200ft/60mt films : The Old House (MGM 1936), very good cartoon (banned in the US for hard to believe reason...) and Jasper And The Watermelon, a George Pal coartonn. Both films have great colours.

Just a statement of it's merit Dominique, not meant literally you understand! 😂😂😂

Mine is also carefully packed away, each and every time it has served it's purpose with impeccable understated excellence.

Wonderfully cute (and enraptured!) kids! I'd love to get a copy of that "Winnie The Pooh"! Was that the one on Steve Osbournes special list a few weeks back?

Very hard to get now Osi. Took me an age to find one in tip top shape.
If Steve has one and its in good nick, I'd snap it up if I were you!

Fabulous photos there Zech!😊😊

If I remember right "Geri's Game" was released new by Derann, but only for a very short time, by the time I thought about getting a copy they no longer released it...pity.

Excellent photo's Zach [Cool] [Smile]

It was indeed a Derann release Graham, as you thought.

Thanks Mark, it was a fun line up of films. Osi, it makes the hobby even more fun having a family that all enjoys a film night. And yes, in fact, all these films were from Steve. He sure had an excellent list. Thank you Andrew, I was thrilled to finally find a print of Winnie The Pooh. I called as soon as I received the film list from The Reel Image. I was sure someone else would have already bought it. I wonder why Derann would have done such a short run on Geri's Game? I wonder if it was to do with the negative quality issues and they didn't want to reinvest in redoing it.
