I watched TARZAN AND THE SECRET TREASURE, a film I picked up at Blackpool. It was in plain boxes with a home-made label pasted on but I suspect it may have been sold by Perry's Movies originally... the labels on the spine look exactly like those on my other Perry's prints.

It was on 4 x 400ft spools which were full to the brim so I suspect it was the full feature. The print had German Titles and small Dutch (?) subs but English sound.

It was a real Saturday matinee film with a pretty good story and some thrilling moments. What a swimmer Johnny Weissmuller was! The print was quite good... a little contrasty but quite clear and good sound. It was on black and white stock. I don't think there's too much Weissmuller's Tarzan on Super 8 so I'm pretty pleased with it.

That has to be quite the rare print there, as, expect for the odd digest, the only other one i know of is "Greystroke: The legend of Tarzan" which, thankfully, I own and also thankfully, still has vintage color.

Top Film from Holland might have released this TARZAN AND THE SECRET TREASURE. They did quite a few over the years. Sadly by the time I had heard of them they had stopped trading.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

Thanks David, I wonder if Perry's imported them? I have an old edition of MOVIE COLLECTOR - that brilliant magazine from the 1990s - and it seems that Perry's had some of the later Tarzans. TARZAN AND THE SLAVE GIRL with Lex Barker in the Tarzan role was available from them in the 1990s.

A standard/regular 8 film, mounted on a large spool : Merry-Go-Round, 1923. A little masterpiece.

Great, Panayotis. You seem to have a good collection of silent films.
Tonight : Reaching For The Moon, mounted on a 360mt/1200ft spool. Although it's an American film, there is a (very short) dialogue in French 😀

by the way folks Both Walton T/J "The Two Mouseketeers" 1952 which incidentally won an academy award, and "His Mouse Friday" are on Fuji Film.

This particular print even after something like 40 years of owning it and regular use, shows no signs of fade, and I still regard it as one of the best color films Walton Films ever printed.

Its unfortunate that "The Dwarfs Dilemma" has faded a little bit, as also that once had stunning color 40 years ago, however the film like its owner has faded a wee bit over those 40 years, "hardly surprising" but in saying that, its still pretty good...
 -

Its been interesting to be able to get nine films onto one 1200ft reel. I think with Egg Cracker Suite and Barber of Saville being on polyester, its given me enough room to squeeze them all in [Smile] Its great to be able to just sit back and watch one after another [Cool]
Nearly forgot the screen shot of Tweety Pie...

Been watching some of my home movies filmed of Christmas past back to 1965 a bit emotional to see everyone again who has passed.

Finished up watching Walt Disney Christmas always popular here and Snow. Finished with a little Scope Goodwill To Men. Nothing quite like a Christmas film show!

May have gone slightly over the top fitting a 35mm Cinemascope lens to a little electronic Yelco.

James!

Great to see that "Independence Day". I was curious, was it just a light setting, or is that print very light and bluish? just curious. A nice sharp print ... however.

We've been doing Christmas shorts on film paired with features projected from DVD:

Saturday: The Small One with Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Live
Sunday: A Disney Christmas with A Christmas Story
Last Night: Mister and Mistletoe (Popeye beats up Bluto for Christmas!) with The Polar Express

We'll do "Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper" tonight and probably skip the feature.

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

Decided to have an afternoon Christmas film show today (Sunday) playing to my vast audience of..... 2. Myself and Mrs.E.

Thought I would keep it Christmassy so she sampled the following..

1) The Night Before Christmas - Disney Terrytoon.

2) The Night Before Christmas - Tom and Jerry

3) Snow Drift at Bleath Gill

4) A Walt Disney Christmas

5) Rupert and The Frog Song

6) The Snowman

7) Below Zero - Laurel and Hardy

Not being content with that little lot we added.....(Not Christmassy)....

8) Airplane - 3x400' (Graham... not watched it for ages and is still as stunning as your screen shots)

9) The Groove Tube.

So,yes,I had a rather splendid Sunday afternoon, thank you!
