Last night,that is two hours ago, I had another all standard 8 program.Started with DR JEKYLL AND MR MOUSE,one of the first batch of Tom and Jerry cartoons issued by Walton in the early seventies. A sharp print that has still retained its colors as new. THE FILM STUDIO,a twenty minute promo made by Universal in 1925 for the exhibitors, inviting a magazine editor for a tour at the studio and the surrounding Universal City,to meet all the stars and directors of the films being prepared for the coming season. Most interesting and a nice print from Blackhawk. Popeye in THE PANELESS WINDOW WASHER,another excellent print from Davelyn/DCR , which includes the British Board of Film Censors title in the beginning.NATURE'S STRANGEST CREATURES,a Disney documentary from the late fifties.which,again,has kept its colors beautifully. I don't know where it has come from as I have never seen Disney Nature documentaries advertised anywhere (I have two more)! The evening ended with L' ETROIT MUSQUETAIRE, the French title for THE THREE MUST-GET-THERES.A 44 minute condensation of the classic Max Linder feature,taken from Maude Linder's 1961 compilation EN COMPANIE DE MAX LINDER. An average Thunderbird print.

Funny, panayotis, I watched (in super 8) Dr Jeckyll and Mr Mouse (bought in Blackpool last Sunday) and I found also the colours amazing. Also screened : Engine Driver, Broadway Highlights, The Chocolate Soldier trl, World On Parade (optical sound) and Boom Boom (nice cartoon from CHC).

I ran a L & H 200' Walton compilation "Musical Moments" last night on my Eumig S710D. When I bought the film last January, it juddered in the gate but was fine after I applied Film Guard to it. I've watched it a couple of times this year with no problems but last night the judder was back. A slight application of Film Guard seemed to cure the judder. I've not had this problem with any of the rest of my films. Any thoughts?

A classic case of shrunken film I think. In some cases Filmguard helps the film get through. Also: different projectors react different to shrunken film. Some are very forgiving, others not.

I am sure you're probably right Alexander regarding this scenario here.

If it's a one off that jitters in the gate,and it is definitely acetate, which I'm sure it will be on this title, then it probably is just a faulty film.

Normally though, filmguard has always solved this issue for me I have to say.

It might be an idea to coat it again just to apply a little more than normal, before trying it again.

Also if you have another machine, this may confirm what Alexander is suggesting here.

Thanks for the feedback. The film ran ok after a light application of Film Guard and was fine when run on a Eumig S712D. Anyway, it's had a liberal application of Film Guard now and I'll try it out in a day or two. I just ran a Collectors Club print of the 1903 film "The Great Train Robbery" and that ran very well.

Space Battleship Yamato, extracts from the 1970s tv show, 3x200ft optical released in Japan.

It has perfect colors even though it was released in the pre-LPP period. It makes me curious what type of film it`s on.

As there is a slight bias towards purple/blue, this could be Fuji. If it is, you should also be able to read the year from the edge code.

Hi Alexander. Thanks for your reply.

The film says 921S along the edges of the sprocket holes. It doesn`t have any other identifying info.
I wasn`t sure what type of film it`s on.
I believe this digest was released in 1978.

I`m probably wrong but I`m curious if it is on AGFA film. I`ve seen a lot of purple tinted Fujifilm but this has no purple tint compared to those.

Colors look great to me Jason, looks like a fun Digest. Quite curious as to its 3x200' release

Hey Evan.

I actually made a mistake. ALl of the spools have about 250 ft of film on them.

Space Battleship Yamato was a twenty six episode series.
It looks like the first spool summarizes episodes 1 and 2. The second spool summarizes episode 24. The third spool summarizes episodes episode 25 and 26.

It was released by Asahi 8mm Library.

Here are some more pictures from the digests.

A few screen cap's of Showboat, Wizard of OZ and King Creole.
All Derann full length features. Showboat in Technicolor is stunning, wow what a treat. King Creole is a very nice print very sharp for S8. Sorry for the lack of color photos with the Wiz they turned out blurry. All top prints highly recommended.

Alan-

Those look like some great features. I haven`t seen King Creole or Showboat on Super 8 but I have seen reenactments of the Broadway plays in "Till the Clouds Roll By" on Super 8.

Osi-

I just figured out that the Japanese digest is on Agfa which really surprised me. It probably has the best color I have seen on a digest or feature released in Japan in the 70s on Super 8. Up until now, I would say 70-80% of the features/digests are on fujifilm while another 20-30% are on Eastman.

Thank you Jason. The pictures dont do it justice the colors on Showboat really pop.
What photo album or program are you using to frame your photo's I like the look.

Space Battleship Yamato reminds me of a cartoon I use to watch growing up called Cluch Cargo.

Alan

I usually just use my Android smartphone to take pictures and the photos are uploaded into my google photos. In google photos from the web browser, if you select a few photos there is an option to automatically generate a collage.

It doesn`t give you the option to reframe what part of the picture is used for the collage but its quick and easy.

Another problem is, I always have to go back and resize the photo so that I can upload it to the forum.

Whenever I want to create a better framed collage, I will take pictures on my phone and use a smartphone image editing app like the LINE camera app.

I will have to watch an episode of Clutch Cargo...I`ve never seen it!

Last night was the office annual sight seeing tour of the local ale houses.
So.... getting my priorities right, this is what I watched...!

Flying Down To Rio - Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - 4x 400' black and white. Generally a nice Mountain print. Good focus and great sound quality... just a few faint tramlines on reel 1 otherwise fine.

After reading Osi's comments on his still pristine copy of the 2x 400' "Jaws" elsewhere on the forum, I decided to give mine a showing after not seeing it for a couple of years. Still in good condition. All the colors were still there, however there is now a slight pink bias with a hint of fade. Otherwise, a good print and.... Hey..... WHAT an edit!!!

Back to work Monday. No doubt the only one there with a clear head!!
