I finished today to watch the standard 8 films I bought from Panayotis [Smile] I used my Heurtier P6-24 B which has a sliding masking 8/super 8 frame system. So you can use the super 8 gate with a standard 8 film. For many films, it works if you use a tripod screen ; you have a bigger picture, you just have to adjust the picture to have the white part on the right out of the screen. Also watched some of the films bought recently at the Big Screen Time : The Fabulous Musicals, Mickey Disco, Gaumont News Review 1934 and two trailers : Ali Baba and This is Paris.

The Black Hole, Disney 400ft going pink/brown but as the second half is in the red light of matter going into the black hole it doesn't spoil the film as it's 90% red anyway. The a couple of Techno Warner cartoons , one the best Kodak SP colour I've seen but soft, the other sharp but a bit brown. I finished off with the Derann standard 8 shower murder 200ft Psycho shown on the Eumig 810D that wouldn't run to speed (in fact it stalled) in winter now we have temperatures in the mid 20's it ran fine and on speed!!! I'll have to check all the lubrication before the weather changes.

Now hold on there, Jason!

-when you say "Yesterday", you're really a day ahead of us so you mean "today",.....or is that "tomorrow"?

Steve, the title of this thread for me should be
"What films did you show the day before yesterday?"

I actually watched two short films on Wednesday morning before work and watched Laurence of Arabia on Wednesday evening.

Nice, jason ! I would be happy to find one day Un chien andalou.

Tonight, I watched two Popeye, in black and white (although they are Film Office releases with French titles, the sound is in English), a Betty Boop (I Heard, very good colours), an exctract (in French) of the Book Of The Jungle and Hollywood Without Make Up.

Dominique, keep an eye out for the Thunderbird Films release. Maybe there might be copies on Super 8 and 16mm released in France.

Yesterday I watched a compliation of silent Japanese films on 1x400ft spool released by Sungraph here in Japan.

I also watched a 3x200 ft film released in Japan that shows the history of the Olympic games up until the 1968 Olympic games.

Last, I watched the Canterbury Films trailer release of "Forbidden Planet". It was very faded but sharp.

Another night home alone, so up to the Man Cave I rushed!

Tonight's helping was to view some new purchases and to see one I have had on the shelf for ages without realizing I had not seen it!

So, to kick off it was the trailer to South Pacific. Whilst I have no complaints over the picture quality or the sound, I think the editors could have done a much better job. Too many "quotes" across the screen praising the production,overshadowing what was going on behind.

Then it was one I bought less than a week ago. Memories of Me starring Billy Crystal and Jo Beth Williams (of Poltergeist fame) on 2x 800' spools with optical sound. Print quality was generally good with just slight fade. Very low on scratches!

To finish off.... Laurel and Hardy in Midnight Patrol. Kind of strange this one, as it was sepia and not black and white. Would that be because it was printed onto colour film that has badly turned, or was this always printed that way? The picture quality was still good. It also had Dutch subtitles throughout.

Just a silent B&W standard 8 AAP print of Elmer's Pet Rabbit, it seems this was the first time Bugs Bunny was credited as such on-screen, but looked a lot different to how we know him now. He did say the line (in sub-titles) "Of course you realise, this means war".

Yesterday, I decided to project my not screened for ages standard/regular 8 copy of Steamboat Bill. I vaguely recalled there was a problem with it. Indeed, some parts were not at the right place, which made the story hard to follow. Today, helped by YouTube, I put everything in order. Took me hours but at least I'm now happy to have a watchable film. Before that, and the days before (I was too lazy to list) some super 8 small spools of cartoons, news, adds and musical. Among the film watched, an amazing silent film bought recently at the Big Screen Time : Big Moments From Little Pictures in which Will Rogers replayed some scenes from other films.

...I screened a trailer reel I received from an eBay auction. It is a strange mix, including Raise the Titanic ( Scope ), Saturday Night Fever ( 2 versions ), How the West Was Won ( This is Cinerama ) and King Kong. The main reason I wanted it was for The Fog trailer ( LPP flat, probably the Derann print ). It a great trailer, many great scenes well-edited with Carpenter's haunting score. Enhanced with great narration and each cast member's photos are shown in the pocket watch. Nice collectable.

Wow! You're right! An awesome trailer! Was the "West Was Won" a flat trailer. or letterboxed? Just curious.

Hi Osi,
Although The Fog trailer is nice and in very good condition,
The How The West was Won trailer is badly scratched, not worthy of screen captures. It is a Flat presentation.

The last two days: just one Derann 'Scope short after another.

Maybe a year ago I managed to get an Elmo auditorium lens in nice shape for a reasonable price (Thanks, Jason Smith!) which means I can leave the machine back where it's supposed to be and we don't have to eat dinner with it as a centerpiece!

This makes 'Scope much easier for everyone.

(So difficult talking to someone looking through the handle!)

Quite a long session this evening.

First off, it was a recent purchase the 6x 400' full length version of David Lean's "Great Expectations." With this, I enjoyed the experience of viewing a film for the first time, on my own screen that I had never seen before. Needless to say it was very impressive.
Finishing off with the two separate 400' extracts from 42nd Street. These were Derann prints bought several years ago but just getting their first showing (as happens on occasions).
Wish I had checked them earlier. Extract #1 whilst being a superb picture with no scratches and good quality sound, did have a print fault as the picture moved up and down continuously with the frame line rising in and out of the picture all the time.
Extract #2 was fine.

Melvin, I also enjoy watching films for the first time projected at home. The novelty and experience is hard to beat.

After two months in Egypt, my first protection since June. My Elmo st 1200 came back from Italy this morning with a two blades shutter. I've just watched two musical shorts bought yesterday at a local convention close to Brussels : The Fabulous Dorsey and Carie Comes Calling. The picture is brighter 😀

A week ago,the classic BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN,complete feature 4X400,bought ages ago from the "mysterious american sources".Good, but not exellent,print,on amber stock.Theatrical acting but so moody and atmospheric! I must transfer it to 2x800,so as not to break the pleasure morem than once.
