Since someone mentioned silence of the lamb's then I guess I might serve up the Armenian pizza Lamejune but then again that's the way my twisted mind works sometimes ......

A nice pot of tea whilst watching Arsenic And Old Lace should do the trick!

I'm glad you put that one up first Kevin. [Big Grin] [Big Grin]
When Brother comes around on a Thursday we have our tea, (or dinner as some people call it [Big Grin] ), then it's kettle on and we take our cups of tea to the film room with a biccy or two or three. [Wink]

BTW, last night was Star Trek the motion picture one last time.

This evening's viewing was quite varied.

1) The Immigrant - Charlie Chaplin 1x 200' (sound)

2) The Champ - Charlie Chaplin 1x 200' (sound)(Both Walton's)

3) Match of The Century from "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" - 1x 200'

4) Winnie The Pooh and Tigger Too - 1x 200'

5) Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid - 1x 400'

6) The Rocky Horror Picture Show - 1x 400' (Why, oh why, oh why was this never released full length?)

The previous Saturday's show was Laurel and Hardy in "Live Ghost" followed by the full length feature of "Showboat" and, yes,Lee Mannering if you are reading this, this is the copy I bought from you several Blackpool's ago and let me tell you, the colour is still as good as the day it was printed. A stunning copy.

I also enjoy the variety shows Melvin. We often do an evening where we simply choose three or four shorts of various films and themes. [Wink]
I was hoping for a 3 x 400 version of Rocky Horror. The 400ft version is quite well put together but still too short. A great fun movie.

Looks like a nice quality print Graham. I love the old B&W movies but most on S8 are hit and miss being over processed with the contrast blown out. It's nice to see a good one once in a while.

Thanks Alan

Another b/w print I will screen very soon I remember in similar condition, was Great Expectations 1946. Although its been a good ten years, I do hope its still the same as I remember it [Smile]

One film that looked great to begin with during the first reel, was "Its a Wonderful Life" after that reel it turned out to be as you described, shame really as it started out really good. These b/w film are certainly hit and miss [Smile]

Fired up my Elmo 1200HD tonight and had a lot of fun watching "The Flight of the Phoenix" 400ft digest..."Singin' in the Rain" 800ft digest of musical numbers...and "Top Flat" 400ft 1935 short with Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly. It was a nice variety. [Smile]

As Janice enjoyed a super 8 Saturday night.... so did I ! Not at the same time, of course, I think we are 7 hours ahead, but you know what I mean!

My Saturday night was an "Elvis" night.

Tickle Me 4x400' - Derann print (with logo) which still has good colour but, oh dear, emulsion scratches and a few ordinary ones for the first reel, including strained sprocket holes. The rest was an improvement.

Fun in Acapulco 1x 400' - What a fantastic edit. I felt as if I had watched a complete film. Not only that, the colour was spot on, as was the sound, and not a single scratch. Slipped through the Sankyo 700 like a dream.

Change of Habit 1x 400' - Good film which has suffered from "Universal 8 Syndrome." In other words, is going pink. Pity as the sound is good and,once again, no scratches.

Did anyone else on the planet do the same thing last night?

I watched Brian DePalma’s OBSESSION last night on 16mm. I also have the feature on super 8.

Janice...Flight of the Phoenix is a good one. I don’t have a copy but I have seen the digest, just love Jimmy Stewart.

Melvin...I really enjoy Elvis too, I have the 4x400 Derann Tickle Me but have not screened it yet. I have most of the 400’ Elvis digests and they all have good color at least they did the last time I watched them. I may have to have an Elvis night as well! [Smile]

Last Saturday night I hosted a Disney night with my "film club." We enjoyed "Once Upon A Mouse" (600'), then many 400' reels of Disney classics. In each case I have combined the two available Disney digests plus the theatrical trailer, and in the case of "Peter Pan" I also added the 50' sampler reel (which includes the "You Can Fly" sequence). Featured titles were "Peter Pan," "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," "The Sword in the Stone," "The Rescuers," "Robin Hood," "The Fox and the Hound," "101 Dalmations," and "Lady and the Tramp." Then we enjoyed a 600' reel of "Mary Poppins" featuring "The Super Nanny" and "Jolly Holliday" digests plus scenes from the 300' Piccolo German language combined. We all agreed that Dick Van Dyke was truly amazing in this film, since he sings, dances, and speaks German. Lol.

Judith Of Bethulia (Griffith, 1914), mounted on a 240m/800ft spool. I used my Heurtier (excellent French make, not very famous in the UK and in the US, it seems). The lens on the projetor is not the original one, it's a 1.6 Eumig. I tried another Eumig (1.2) but it didn't work (while it does on Eumig projectors).
