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!

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]

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]

First a Donald compilation released by Disney (I also bought, yesterday by the way, the Goofy and the Mickey ones). The seller told me the colours were very good and that's true. Then, an excellent silent film, Hidden Aces, mounted on a 360 mt/1200ft spool.

Several rare Vitagraph silent comedies,with music and humorous (!) narration,in Spanish,which is not so annoying.All with changed spanish titles. Larry Semon in TROUBLE BREWING,A PAIR OF KINGS and HUSBANDS AND HUMBUGS (if I am not wrong) and two with Jimmy Aubrey,I can't identify.One takes place in Mexico and the other in Russia.Vernon Dent appears in the second one.

We watched our Optical sound feature of "Finders Keepers" a 1983 comedy that is pretty funny and has a good deal of twists and turns and, being a 1983 film, was one of those early filns that incorporated songs from various eras, (I Get Around, American Pie, Take the long Way Home ect) ...

It was an opportunity to try out my "refurbished" Chinon 9500. Sine i was able to do a great job on my ELMO, I decided to do a good cleaning on my opticval sound mechanism on the Chinon 9500, and I even made a really good external speaker for the projector and WOW! Did the optical sound, sound really crisp with good bottom to the sound ...

... and I was pleased to see that the color has held up very well on this print! [Smile]

Well its been at least 30 years since I last watched "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" I bought a print brand new back then, but later sold it. This later copy I was given, so last night I thought after sitting on the shelf for a long while, I would screen it for old times sake. Sadly the dreaded fade has now caught up with this one as well, but watching it last night did bring back memories of how some of those MGM releases has soft focus from day one...like this one.

I might screen it again sometime near in the future, just for the fun of it...

The spare GS1200 has been getting a good work out of late going through what to keep and what to get rid off.

Feb. 20th: back to my childhood in mid 70's with three 8mm silent prints packed on a metal 400' reel: Dracula; Frankenstein meets the wolfman and Creature from the Lagoon I acquired recently. I sat back and 43 or 44 years ago flashed when my father had a beige B&H 8mm autoload silent projector in the house and watched in the living room. I had empty box for one of the prints so I utilized it. Creature was the sharpest; most likely being due to being the second digest Castle produced and struck from sharp negative.

Halloween Scope feature 1978
Derann

Often sited as the best horror film ever its sure is full of jump out of your seat moments. Back in the day I was delighted when Derann asked me for a review of the 8mm scope release and obliged rather exuberantly looking back. The print was made from a 16mm print so is perhaps a little softer than usual but still excellent fun. A re record from a digital audio source also lifts the print to a new level.

Ended the show with Gracie Fields in Sing as we go....as you do.

Two days ago : a compilation reel of Goofy. Colours are excellent. Although the box and the titles are in French, some extracts have an English soundtracks (while others are in French). I Wonder what Disney had in mind when they released that this way.
Tonight : Earth, the silent Russian classical film. I was surprised to see that the film (which has no soundtrack) runs at 24 fps and not 18. Maybe because the film was released in 1930 and some copies (sent abroad) were set at 24 fps as many cinema already had sound projectors ? Or maybe it was shot with a camera ready for the sound speed ?

This evening it was one of those rare pleasures to view a full length feature on super 8 for the first time, without ever seeing it elsewhere.

That feature was The Bells of St.Mary's starring Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman 6x 400' which was one of my purchases at Farnworth recently. The print/image and sound quality were excellent, but oh dear! One or two tramlines. Still, a very enjoyable film that now comes highly recommended from me....and Mrs.E !

Chip! My inspiration!

We took out and ran our extract, "The Nutcracker Suite", which starts out with the original trailer to the feature!

(Lovely Derann print)

A silent classical film : Oliver Twist with Jackie Coogan and Lon Chaney. The Wikepedia in French about this film refers to Blackhawk and the super 8 version.

Been wading thru one of my dear film making friends home movies now left us I'm afraid but my what fun we had making films together and our little jaunts out in his Mini car. He did the continuity for my Cinema in Miniature by the way.

All those years on and Kodak super 8 film still looks bright as a daisy. He had a very dry sense of humour and you had to be on the ball but we certainly laughed a great deal. A nice clip on one of his films testing the new Eumig Sound cine camera features and the sensitivity of the microphone. He worked in the technical side of electronic design so always measuring the tolerance of something or other.

Our greatest feat was filming on the North West tops in a snow storm come blizzard with me holding onto the tripod for dear life and our hair blowing horizontal, that was when I had hair mind you. He was trying to read the script in that severe weather as well. Ah great times!
