I just ran a Disney Double feature! The titles were Toy Story and Who framed Roger Rabbit! The crowd went wild! They just loved the print Quality! Long live super8.

Dom,your silent short is the Griffith directed "The Transformation of Mike"(1912),not "Variation".The case of this one is a rare Blackhawk mistake,that of including an unedited version with the correct one. Another one happened to me,ages ago. I bought a little Rascals silent two reeler,which arrived in a two reel box with two reels.One contained the complete short and the other the second reel again! Last,thank you for the praise of my finding the Max Linder film.It was indeed a most happy unexpected surprise!

Watching some of my home movies filmed over the last 50 years. Funny how they look so young but we seem to be getting older. [Roll Eyes] The wonders of Kodak colour seems to be holding up very well indeed but I do wonder if the new 100D will last the same.

I screened Hitchcock’s masterpiece PSYCHO; the full feature which I bought recently from a collector friend after years of searching.
Other than my BluRay or DVD it’s uncut...! The image is brilliant and catches the breathtaking athmosphere Mr. Hitchcock created perfectly.
A real gem!

400ft Walton cut down of the Rank colour version of The 39 Steps with Robert Powell as Hanney. It is a Studio Films Lab print on late Fuji stock with balance stripe and the colour was pristine. A little unsteadiness at the end, but that might mean it needs re-lubricating.

Brian ...

I really liked that remake of Hitchocks "39 Steps"! I didn't luck out in getting it, but there was an optical feature of this that sold about a year ago that had surprisingly pristine color, i mean, really lovely to look at, but it was an "odd' print in that the sound, on the last reel, was about a second or so off in sync, which is a fairly rare thing with optical features, (and, lets face it, unless you are willing to mag stripe and re-record, you'll never have THAT reel in sync!) [Smile]

Appropriately enough, on this 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's historic journey, my viewing list tonight included Walton's Pathe film "Apollo 11 - The First Men On The Moon." 200' - very pink.

My others were....

The Deep 1x 400'

The Railway Children 4x 400' (Powell release)

Marx Bros. A Night at the Opera, Super 8 400', about 18 minutes. Film was a gift from my friend Danny. Screened it last night and enjoyed it a lot, especially with the crisp soundtrack getting an assist from a Yamaha A/V receiver (fed from my Elmo ST-1200HD) in turn feeding a pair of old Polk SDA speakers.

The Ken Films digests of The Poseidon adventure and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Both still have quite good colour (the blue is all there but black shows as dark brown. However "Butch" has the worst amount of printed in white marks from negative dirt/damage I have ever seen especially at the beginning and end. Also the Techno Warner Cartoon Tweety and the Beanstalk on 3M stock still good colour but the sound is rough, a second print I have on Eastman has better sound, strangely the label is printed slightly differently with a larger picture and the title split on two lines differently.

Tonight I host my film club and the members voted Comedy as the theme. I have planned a program of:
Woody Woodpecker reel (Castle Films/U8 "Woody's Clip Joint," "Misguided Missile," and "Witch Crafty")
"Hurry, Hurry," (W.C.Fields' Castle Films excerpt) with Abbott & Costello "Who's on First" routine
"Thoroughly Modern Millie" (U8 Julie Andrews musical comedy)
"Disorder in the Court" (Columbia Three Stooges)
"Blazing Saddles" (Columbia digest)
The Little Rascals reel with "Three Men in a Tub" and "Framing Youth" (Blackhawk)
"You Can't Cheat an Honest Man" (W.C.Fields' U8 plus Castle Films' 200' "Circus Slicker" combined)
"Animal House" (U8 600' digest)
We viewed "Airplane!" (Marketing Films' 3X400' edition) a few months ago on Classic Movie night.

Paris 1900 (480 mt/1600 ft). As the title suggests it, the film is made of pre WWI footage. It has a soundtrack with useful comments.I don't know if in English there is a specific term to name that period but in French it's called "la Belle Epoque" (The Beautiful Era/Epoch), while the post WWI times (the twenties) are called "les années folles" (The Crazy Years).

Wow!!! That's a night of film!!!

I actually toyed with the idea of taking one of those 12 or more chapter serials and, (like they used to do for more marketability), make my own full feature film, but not cut it down TOO much, as they would do with, for instance, the Buck Rogers serials, (down to a mere 70 or so minutes of a 12 chapter serial).

Color could have been worse...

-then again it could have been better!

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

I recently spliced all 12 reels of PIRATE TREASURE on to 1200 foot reels (4). I only removed the heads and tails as needed. I did not edit any other content.

I thought at first it would be a little repetitious seeing all those logos and recaps. But actually it wasn't too bad.

So anyone would be OK doing this as well.

A mixed short (700ft ish) version of Disney's "The Jungle Book". The extract "Mogli the Jungle Boy" followed by the Elephant March and I Wanna be like You ending with the last reel of the Derann feature. It went together quite well, the Fuji extracts not too much astray from the Agfa of the last reel.

Silent film night. After watching the Giants baseball game I pulled out my Sankyo 2000H silent projector and watched my 3x400ft copy of Black Hawk's The Great K&A Train Robbery (1926) starring Tom Mix. IMDB lists John Wayne as a uncredited extra in this movie.
