My Dad was heavy duty into classical music, but used to hate Bugs Bunny (-called him a wise-ass!).

-What's Opera Doc brought him around!

It's one of the greats, but had a working budget multiple times what other cartoons then in production had, and Chuck Jones knew it would never fly with the studio if he presented it as such.

-here is a great cartoon that only exists because someone cooked the books!

Last night was silent night [Smile] Started out with Laurel and Hardy's "The Second Hundred Years" and followed by Melies' "Trip to the Moon."

Claude François, le film de sa vie (Claude François, the film of his life), a film released in super 8 in Belgium after the (sudden)death of the famous French singer Claude François (after an electrical shock in his bad, in the '70s, safety standards were different from what they are nowadays)). He wrote a song (Comme d'habitude) that was adapted in English Under the title "My Way". At least, that should tell something to Anglo Saxon audiences [Wink]

My Saturday night in the Den was as follows....

Trailers to Titanic, Jurassic Park and Schindler's List.

Then it was reels 2,3,4,and 5 of Casablanca. Still on the lookout for reels 1 and 6 after all these years!

This weekend we had my wife's family round for a meal and afterwards they asked me to give them the home cinema experience. I duly obliged and even threw in some old fashioned choc ices during the intermission [Wink]
The film I selected was the classic 'No Limit' (4x400') starring George Formby which is a real classic in my opinion (although to be honest anything with motorbikes in it is a winner in my book!)
I'm claiming it as a roaring success - the kids were engaged enough to stop looking at their mobiles and all cheered George along. I even managed to get them to join us in a couple of songs!

No Limit.
Back in the day Derek got hold of a 35mm print to produce the super 8 print. He phoned with the news at the time and its probably the best B&W on Acetate out there from the UK.
Off the Dole was another one lifted from 35mm and a early 4X400 from them. I still have my print a early one diving in quickly to order in the 70's and just a little bit precious to me. [Cool]
