Picked up a beautiful bolex m8 projector and just watched The Lost World. The print was great. Even our accompanying music seemed to sync up without a problem. All in all a great evening.

An incomplete (I didn't remember what was on the spool) promotional film for a car company in Dutch language. Surprinsingly, good colours. Then several silent films : A Submarine Pirate (with Sydney Chaplin), Battle At Elderbush and two Tom Mix films (Local Color and Arizona Wooding)

Tonight I screened JAMES BOND - THUNDERBALL on the big scope screen.
Although dark in places it is a superb print.
I re-recorded the feature with a new Stereo sound from the DVD source
and it was an amazing event.
You have to see Bond on the screen!

Well I cant even remember when the last time I ran "Beauty and the Beast" on the GS1200 as it was so long ago.

I bought this print brand new from Derann when they first released it back in the 1990s

It was a real joy to screen it once again this aftenoon and it looked great, the stereo sound also was very good. [Cool]

I did something that I hadn't actually done in quite awhile, i had a film night for friends and family! (usually it's just family).

In this case, it was a "Stooge-A-thon"! We watched 6 of the original shorts ...

Men In Black
Disorder in the Court
Pardon My Skotch
Hoi Polloi
Violent is the Word for Curly

and ...

Pardon My Backfire (3D!!)

Except for "Backfire" and "Disorder", they were all original Columbia 400ft titles and boy, did they do a really great job on those prints. Very sharp and in most cases, the audio was actually than I've heard elsewhere at times.

I do like the 400 ft versions, you can see so many movies in one evening & when they are edited well you do feel like you have watched the movie. [Wink]

Gentlmen Prefer Blondes was actually not a bad digest, the funny thing is that our digest has mint color but at one short moment or two in the film, there is a cut from really good color to really bad, and I'm betting that some eastman film stock was cut in at that specific point, in the original source material for the negative. Weird.

Tom,
Good point there,watching well edited cutdowns are good fun,ones that end abruptly I'm not keen on,they get going then end and some you have no idea on story line.

Osi,
I noticed a few small shots that seemed faded on my Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with very good colour throughout,it probably happens to quite a few others too.

Now watching Little Caeser 3x400,this is quite a good cutdown,print quality isn't bad either for it's age,Mark

Slums Of Berlin, a 1925 German film (silent of course). Although my Fumeo has a two blades shutter, I could Watch the film at 18 fps without flickering. Maybe because the blades are large ?

I would think the screen brightness and screen size would be more important than the blade width, Dominique. The edges of you vision are more likely to notice flicker. That said I would thinner blades would be less noticeable.

Brian, on the same screen, with other projectors the flickering at 18 fps is very noticeable with a two blades shuter. The difference I see with the other projectors is that, as I said, the blades seem larger and the lamp seems to be located at a longer distance from the window.

I gave in at last, after the snow here had gone and hearing about a stranded train in the North, so I watched a DRC print of "Snowdrift at Bleath Gill" on genuine B&W stock, so no colour shift.

Tonight I watch the first reel of my new feature from Steve @ The Reel Image "Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the Sith" in scope.
Print quality is excellent. The sound is excellent. Excuse the poor picture quality, I used my cell phone while the print was running.

Although I don’t like the „new“ Star Wars features I must say that the print really looks awesome. Do You have 2 soundstripes for Stereo sound? Really a great Super-8-jewel! Congratulations!
