Osi - I must say that the colour of both parts of my Animal House is consistent with each other. There is very little fade on either copy. I would rate the colour on both as 90%. Keep searching, my friend, I am sure there will be a decent part 1 out there somewhere for you. I am at a good advantage with this one as it was bought brand new at one of Uncle Derek's open days many moons ago which probably explains its longevity.

Pulled down my Eumig 824 from the closet shelf last night. I use this projector primarily for standard 8mm sound films. I don't have many reels of this format so I recycle through what I have a couple times a year. Last night it was my 4x400 set of the Marx Brother's "A Night in Casablanca."

Two cartoons on super 8 from the Hong Kong Phooey serie, then a classical 1915 film : The Cheat on standard/regular 8.

A 1932 German cartoon (with no dialogue) that appears at the end to be a kind commercial for a Telefunken radio set. A spool with four songs of Petula Clark (two in French, one in English and one mixed). One silent film with Dutch cardboards (I hope it's the correct word). The title could be translated as something like "The magic gloves". It says on the box "Pathé frères 1920" but I have no doubt it's earlier. To finish, another silent film : The Jungle Tragedy.

Possibly "Cut outs" would be better for us than cardboards, if I understand correctly. Cardboard cut out pieces animated.

Brian, I was refering to the texts (almost always white letters on a black ground) that gives some explanations or a dialogue in silent films. The French word is "carton(s)" ; is it "cut outs" in English ?

Dracula has Risen from the Grave, Derann import with German tiles but English sound reels 1,2,3,5. dark parts bought at a discount. I watched the missing part off DVD, but that has very poor grading in day for night scenes, when fast forwarding through it looked like Dracula was pursuing the inn girl in the mid day sun after leaving work when the inn closed!!!

Futtocks End the Ronnie Barker "silent" (no dialogue) short 2x400ft from Walton on Fuji with good colour. I bought this from Ian at The Big Screen Scene revival last year for £20 to replace my faded 200ft extract. It has few scratches but id much better.

First, two cartoons : Tom and Jerry Tops With Pops (in cinemascope) and Jungle Jazz (1930), then Voyage To The Moon (Mélies). The three films were bought at the 9.5 Spring Fair that was held one week ago.

Today and yesterday the weather in Belgium was so beautiful, like the first days of summer! So, time for an outdoor screening! On the program were four films:

1) "Le Chat" (French cult film from 1971, with Jean Gabin and Simone Signoret). Italian print, unfortunately red
2) "L'aile ou la cuisse" with Louis de Funes (abridged Marketing film)
3) Spanish school documentary, a Encyclopedia Brittanica Film title: "Heat and how we use it". Very nice colours, this one.
4) A part from "For a fistful of dollars" with Clint Eastwood, italian Euro Films print.

Just received this from Steve Osborne. He listed it as "Not quite Derann quality-better than Italian prints"

I was hoping it was a print I was familiar with and it was. I know the history of this. It came from a 16mm print printed down to a dual super 8mm negative then contact printed to super 8mm prints. Parts 1 & 2 printed on one side, parts 3 & 4 printed on the other so as one print could be printed at a time. Printed somewhere around 1983-4. As advertised not quite Derann. Dark scenes have lost some detail, it's shifted slightly to the left, and not quite as sharp as it could have been but still very acceptable and very enjoyable. And as you can see still great color.

All above a great read.
