Cartoon and comedy shorts. A mixed bag of this and that. Nice to see some of the best shorts Disney, Castle, Blackhawk and so on. These are what I started with before I had features.

Everything super 8 magnetic sound
12 reels
400 foot

First half at 1230 matinee
Second half after Sunday dinner

The evening now done both parts screened
Total screen time 3 & 1/2 hours
Running twin machines

I guess being out of a stuffy basement does make a difference! I really am enjoying my new location!

Monty Python & the Holy Grail, both parts of the Walton cut down which sadly ends well before the feature does. Part one had good to excellent colour on Fuji stock. Part 2 unfortunately is on Eastmancolor and going very pink.

We dedicated a second screening room in the house the other night. Per tradition the first film on the new screen was the very first film print I ever owned:

Two Foot Gauge in Maine

This print is 41 years old now and being that it's black and white printed on color stock it's showing its age these days!

I guess its shades of red go with the gray in my temples!

If only I could, Chip! [Smile]

I wish I knew who bought that full feature of "Holy Grail" (optical sound super 8 feature), as I would LOVE to track that down!

Steve ...

That is a cool tradition!

Yesterday I hung out with my sister, Melanie and we watched cartoons all afternoon! All super 8 sound.

First we started in scope as I had my screen masked that way.
Tom and Jerry Down Beat Bear
Tom and Jerry Tops with Pops
Tom and Jerry The Egg and Jerry
Midway Melody (live action short about amusement park)

Then we went to flat masking
Chilly Willy The Legend of Rockabye Point
Crazy Mixed-Up Pup
Loopy de Loop (I had forgotten this was an optical print so we watched it silent first and then we played it again with sound!)
Susie the Little Blue Coupe
Jumpin’ Jupiter (Porky Pig and Sylvester)
Rollercoaster Rabbit
Thru The Mirror (Mickey Mouse)
Tweety SOS

What a great time we had!

I ran a double feature! Super 8 optical. The films were Uncle Buck! Just Hilarious! And Death Hunt. Both are nice looking prints! And my film crowd loved it! My optical collection just keeps growing!

Last Night:

Buster Keaton in "Cops" (Blackhawk, Scored).

We ran this one at CineSea the last time: the crowd loved it!

Mr. Keaton is pretty quickly becoming my favorite among the silent era stars!

LEON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHERE id you get "Death Hunt" GAWD! I'd love to have that film.

Lucky son of a gun!!!! [Smile]

Uncle Buck is a really rare one!

We watched "Rocky 3" optical sound, last night. A curious print, it's on two different stocks. the first third is low fade and on some form of low fade, (well it hasn't faded, but I can't verify which one it is), the last two thirds are definitely on L.P.P. and the image has the slightest "bluishness" to the image.

We were cleaning up downstairs and stumbled across a sound 200 Footer: "L&H Tour". (I don't even remember buying it!)

So I screened it tonight. A reporter asked Stan why they were in England. He said "We are here to do some stage shows and make a new movie called 'Robin Hood'".

-all of a sudden the light dawned: this is the real Laurel and Hardy on the same tour that the 2018 Feature "Stan & Ollie" was based on.

I want to get the "Stan & Ollie" DVD: this will go nicely with it.

Another "home alone" evening so out comes the super 8 !

Tonight's treat to myself was....

Grease 6x400' (or in my case 2x 800' as it was printed on that thinner film base. Forgotten its name....)**

The Road to Bali - 3x 400' Amusing but badly faded Bing and Bob film which features very quick cameo's of Humphrey Bogart and Jane Russell...… and some digs at Paramount studios!

Earthquake 1x 400' - By now I had a text that Mrs.E. was heading home so popped this one on as the finale as I have not seen it in ages. The colour has held up very well and so has the sound.

Now.....a cup of cocoa and bed....!

** Polyester?

I just watched the Nutcracker sequence from Fantasia. A white box special from Derann (said to be due to off centre printing, but I couldn't see any black line at the side) seemingly French sound for the intro and great colour on Agfa stock.

Melvin,

I have the Marketing Film (I think?) "Grease" on 2x800'. It has wonderful color and sound, but I would describe it as "almost sharp".

When I'm watching it I feel like adjusting focus, but it never quite gets there.

-Is yours like this?

(I actually found a fix for this: one glass of Port! Roughly halfway through it the sharpness becomes excellent! [Wink] )

Brian,

Interesting: My Derann Nutcracker is without an introduction, but Bach's Toccata and Fugue has a French introduction.

(Both are great reels! Clean the dust off my speakers! Beethoven's 5th in Fantasia 2000 cleans the dust off the entire neighborhood!)

Steve - Ironically, I thought to myself last night just how sharp the print was, even on a 6' wide (horizontally) screen. The sound,although good, could have been a little better. By the way, I am talking about the flat and mono version.

I also possess the Marketing 3x 400' cut down. THAT is where I need a glass of Port to make the picture come into focus. Very soft.

Yes,

That's the one I have too. If it was just a little sharper it would be really great. If it was just a little softer it would be easier to accept it and move on.

-it's just kind of stuck in the middle.

It's still enjoyable.

The Empire Strikes Back 2x400ft cut down. Looking rather faded i the shadows but the blue on Empire officers badges was showing bright.

The Jerk Universal 8 2x400ft on Eastmancolor which had less fade than I expected and other than brown shadows overall good colour and Gold Diggers of 1933 Derann 600ft on B&W stock with better definition than I remembered. I hadn't watched these for some time as they were in a difficult to access low (almost floor level) shelf, which may have been why the colour was good due to lower temperatures

One I bought at the auction at BFCC at the Top Hat Club many years ago, but saw several copies at Phil's CHC in August. "A Cinderella Story", the Iver 4x400ft promo for The Slipper & the Rose, unfortunately on SP but except in very dim scenes all the colours are still there. I wonder if this was the longest promo film ever released on Super 8.

I had been on a 16mm roll the past few weeks...but last night was strictly Super 8. Started off with Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly in the Beauty and the Bus (1933)... Next W.C. Fields in The Dentist (1932)...then Humphrey Bogart and Kathern Hepburn in the digest of The African Queen (1951) and finally Jimmy Stewart in the digest Flight of the Phoenix (1965).
