For me just some trailers yesterday. Romancing the Stone, Jewel of the Nile, A View to a Kill,& The Living Daylights (both teaser & main) with Odeon your First Choice and British Film Year tags as separators. All Derann releases colour as good as when I bought them, but the Fox trailers were always a little blue in some scenes.

No pictures, unfortunately - last night I was at my Witzend via Walton Film Prints. Both films had scriptwriters Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais First "To Russia with Elton" a 4 reeler which I bought as an ex-library print (if I remember correctly) from PM Films. Om Eastman film the first reel looked a bit brown at times, the second improved ans showed no signs of fading. Of course as much of this had stage lighting the colour balance was hard to judge. The original was 42 minutes long so very little was cut, if any.
The second was "Porridge" the film version as a 2 reel extract on Fuji, a 1980 negative according to the leader (both films was released in 1979. The colour on this was much better than I expected with really good greens, red, and blues.

I'm sure I saw these two together on original release at the Classic Haymarket, so pairing them brought back memories of that.
To top it off a couple of much earlier adverts (Derann advert reel 6) Len Lyle's Craven A animated cigarette advert and a Post office savings one "Rainbow Dance" live action and animation/posterization/false colour etc. Things that are easy with digital manipulation but really cutting edge then. Both originally in "Garsper Colour". :-)

looks a beauty Steve! [Smile] [Wink]

Beautifully sharp also for a Super 8mm scope image.
What anamorphic are you using Steve? Sure looks impressive!

Having spent the past month moving from one room in a house (where I have lived for nearly 9 years)to another room in another house - last Saturday, I finally got the room and all my accumulated 'stuff' sorted so as to be able to have a small screening session of the following:

The Fatal Glass of Beer - Fields (a Niles copy - poor quality pic and sound)

Laughing Gravy - L&H (somewhat over-exposed and soft focus)

Tennis Chumps - T&J (SUPERB quality - pic/col and sound!)

Last Train From Gunhill (400'digest) - Douglas (pretty good editing on this digest - good sound and pic/image but completely BLUE/GREEN with some very thick black/blue lines that started to appear halfway through!)

So although not the best quality of films selected - after a difficult last few months - I was just glad to be screening my newly acquired second collection again!

The next step before my next screening-session is to set-up my screen (not as easy as it would seem when you live in a room that's 15'x15') which, with a selection of (hopefully) better quality films, will greatly enhance the experience.

That said - regardless of the quality (or sometimes lack) of one's films - there's no better or more enjoyable experience than actually projecting your own films (even if it's only against a plain wall!) rather than watching them on the old 'goggle-box'! [Smile] [Smile]

I sincerely hope that (excepting personal circumstances) that I will be able to play a more active part in this wonderful forum from now on.

Ali.

Last nigh Part one (That is the film up to the Intermission title card) of Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines. My compilation of various reels bought from Derann with faults (stripe oxide on film, low sound, lab scratch, printer fault on last few feet - most very small defects but bringing the price down to about £20 per 600ft reel).

All on Agfa and very good colour and sharpness, unfortunately the auto-focus on camera wasn't good enough to show the quality but :-

That print of Brainstorm looks excellent. Is this a Derann title?

Yes it is Michael.

It does indeed look excellent, but then again nothing unusual in this based on many of the later prints.

Many don't realize just how good the super 8mm tiny framed image can look when all conditions are excellent.

Andrew ...

Just curious, is this the Derann reprint of "Brainstorm" or a Kempski original. I have heard that you can tell if it's a kempski if it states "kempski' on the original leader on the print. If it's a Derann reprint, that "Kempski" leader is missing.

Wouldn't know Osi, I don't own Steve's film but I've seen examples of both and both can look as good as Steve's.

Steve will have to tell you which one his is and hopefully tell me which scope lens got his looking this sharp.

I've just watched the part 1 on my 2 parts (2x 480 mt) version of Ben Hur (part 2 will be for tomorrow). Yesterday, projected Love Happy, a Marx Brothers film that is in original English language but with French Subtitles.

I remember back in the day, Brian, when this was first released that Keith Wilton reviewed it and declared it by far the best super 8 'scope print he'd ever seen, or was ever likely to see - I think he referred to it as pretty much perfect.

Perhaps you're right, Andrew, memory isn't what it used tp be!!

Although I dug this up by Keith Wilton, from Super 8 Film Review in FFTC, Winter 1992;

"The print...is simply magnificent. It must rank as one of the best available on 8mm.

As sharp as a tack right across the picture...

A print that one would be pleased with on 16mm, let alone super 8. Buck Movie Picture Lab have done an extraordinary job - our review print, with just a couple of teeny-weeny blemishes (which may have occurred after printing) is just about the most perfect print I have ever seen on 8mm...

An absolute beauty of a print with good stereo sound to match..."

Print A* Sound A*/A

So almost the best, lol! [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

I'm sure they're both superb Rob and we must remember, Keith often superseded his own words as newer prints were released.

I think it's fair to say there are probably many that are jaw droppingly good that made it onto the tiny frame!😊😊

I watched one such example only last night!

I've just watched the second part of my (2 x 480 mt/ 1600 ft) Ben Hur version. This afternoon, I screened the last episode of the 1917 serial The Mystery Of The Double Cross. I watched one episode a day of this great silent 15 parts.

Last night,I watched, again, Stroheim's GREED ( Standard 8,Bouchard print),in preparation for a public showing with live piano accompaniment later this month at our local club. I don't tire no matter how many times I watch it.It is an absolute classic.
