A 400 ft Super 8 Sound digest of "Hell Drivers" starring Stanley Baker, Patrick McGoohan, Sean Connery and Peggy Cummins amongst many others. They don't make 'em like that any more!

My Saturday Night offering to myself.....

Dracula 2x 400' Frank Langella

National Lampoon's Animal House 2x 400'

Quite a contrast, don't you think? Both Universal 8 and both still pretty good colour.

A short late-might "un-PC" Der Fuehrer's Face, Uncle Tom's Cabana and Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs. Disney, MGM and Warner - all LPP or Agfa so good colour.

Tonight I will be home screening West Side Story full length in CinemaScope. I have seen everything in my collection back in the basement cinema but I swear every movie I have seen in my new cinema is a new experience and it is so much better then before!

Tonight it was a personal viewing (just me) of the Derann 4 x 400' Ealing comedy "The Titfield Thunderbolt" on my recently eBay purchased Imac Bisonic projector which only needed a new motor drive belt and a blown fuse replaced to get it running! Well pleased with that!

Some of my own home movies followed by a full day of Super 8 films to catch up on a good day off work.
Enjoyed Horror of Dracula trailer so much I watched it 4 times, also Dracula Prince of Darkness Scope twice...as you do.

Its always fascinated me that Horror of Dracula trailer with the USA title over the UK Dracula and a good one to look for on Super 8. Hammer films do seem to becoming much harder to find but do turn up.

Continuing the Hammer theme.

Horror of Dracula Trl
My own home movie filmed in 71 DRACULA 1971 I guess every youthful film maker had a go at this one.

Good old Kodak film.

Making of Dracula AD 1972
Scars of Dracula Derann Not bad colour really.

Nothing like a carry on!

Recorded into Stereophonic sound and been thru the old Eumig a few times years ago.

Did watch at my local Comic shop my 4 reels of The Man who knew too much(1934) with my Bolex SP8.
Very fun experience. we were about 15 peoples watching it.
Unfortunately the reel number 3 show sign of detoriation on the audio level. Is there any place or somebody here that can re record on a magnetic strip the audio?

Hey! For all of us folk in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the first day of Spring! (...sorry about that, Graham! [Wink] )

I love this time of year: so much hope for warm days ahead, and all the great things I plan to do. Here's hoping I get around to even half of them!

As much as I can, I always watch the British Transport Film "Journey Into Spring" to celebrate it's arrival. Tonight was no exception.

Journey Into Spring

That's alright Steve [Big Grin]

Yes we are heading into winter and the nights are getting darker, nothing like when I worked in Scotland. yuk in winter [Frown] going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, week after week. Getting on that old tub "SS Australis" at Southampton way back in June 1973 was the best thing I ever did. [Cool] [Smile]

PS...The coldest night I still remember, was during my ACF school days, where we spent a weekend at a army camp at a place called "Garelochhead" on one of the coldest weekends that winter in Scotland during the 1960s. On our first night we stayed in what they call "Nissan Huts" that were nothing more than corrugated iron with a concrete floor. With no heating and a iron roof it was like being in a fridge. The next morning we were up at 5am breakfast and training, although I am not sure if that's what you would call it [Eek!] We were up against the regular army guys, who seemed to like throwing thunder flashes and smoke bombs everywhere. What a weekend that was, "we did survive" but those cold nights were really bitter, with no daylight until near 9am and dark by 4pm. I am sure things are more civilized now [Smile] ...I hope [Smile]

Last night for me it was the excellent 4 x 400 "The Iron Maiden" (no, not the pop group but a film about a traction engine) AKA in the US as "The Swingin' Maiden" from Powell films if I remember correctly. A film you can watch again and again.

A great film that Dom I have it on 8, 16 and of course 9.5 sound. A bit obsessed with that title for many a year great fun.

I watched Plan 9 from outer space 200ft. A short I've not had time to re record but finally just completed it and into STEREO Yay!
The original 70's sound track must have been recorded thru two bean tins it was so shocking. Makes for a nice little programme filler and the fleeting glimpse of Bela Lugosi.

An evening of Disney Compilations for me Donald Duck's Dilemmas, Goofy's Golden Gags and Mickey's Memorable Moments. All Buck Labs Prints on Fuji and have kept good colour. I did splice in the 200ft of Tiger Trouble which is on Sp and a little orange/pinkbut doesn't really notice as the pallet is the same, but it did make the Fui look a little purple after for a few seconds.

A film from the ark. BACKSTAGE AT NAVERONE. (That's how its spelt on the box)

Interesting behind the scenes look at The Guns of Navarone and not seen for many a year have to say. Nice to see the cast at play and work also the construction of the big guns all fascinating stuff. That set actually blew down and they had to rebuild it. Quite hard to find these days I would hazard a guess.

Terminator 2 Scope Stereophonic

Always get a little bit emotional when I watch this as it was the last long new feature I purchased from beloved Derann and our Ged (what a great guy) took the order very late in the day as new prints were ending. The colours and crispness of the print are beyond superb and really favour Agfa film prints with such deep blacks. Re recorded this myself back then and its really a nice watch The Schwarz's best for me.

If anyone ever asked the question what is the best film and projector combination my answer would be this film and a good GS1200.

Hey Melvin ...

Does part 1 of the "Animal House" have more fade than part 2? Every 2X400ft of that title, the second half always looks better than the first half.

Last night they had an interview with Sally Geeson on Talking Pictures TV, so I had to watch a reel of "What's Good for the Goose" from the Derann 4 x400ft version. It is now very faded and pink, but I only paid £20 for it at a BFCC bring and Buy. I then watched reel 1 of "Dracula has Risen from the Grave" a bit dark but no fade and great colour.
