Watched 2 home movies (8mm) from the late 50's. Somewhere in Ontario on a lake with individuals driving motor boars and watching larger yachts in a canal. Some great scenes. I'm left wondering who these people were.

Just screened Castle Films 200-foot silent digest of The Invisible Man with my kiddo. Also discovered my 200-foot Dracula is not Super 8, so another reason I need to add a regular or dual 8 projector at some point.

Not a particularly big session this time.

3x Tom and Jerry - Saturday Evening Puss / The Two Mousketeers / Jerry and Jumbo - All Walton Prints at 200'

1 x 400' King Solomon's Mines - Not seen for ages

Then two different prints of reel 4 from the feature Carve Her Name With Pride with a view to selling one of them.

Screened two 200' Castle silent digests -- Frankenstein and Man-Made Monster. These Castle films are adeptly edited little things. I want to get more.

Another silent evening ; I screened the classical The End Of St Petersburg. The film is mounted on a large spool and I used my modified (with larger arms) GS 1200.

Thanks, Panayotis. Ce coquin de Picratt (60mt/220ft so an edited version) is Red Pepper but I don't know the original title of Le roi du volant.

Perils In A Harem, a parody of The Perils Of Pauline and "Pompei Scavi", a 30mt/100 ft travel film. Although the box says "Printed on film Kodak", as 99% of the Italian prints, colours are fading (a blue filter did help but we're far away from Kodachrome).

I was lucky to finally get FANTASTIC VOYAGE and it is in like new condition.
The full cinemascope feature by Derann.
I screened it on Saturday night and it was really a phantastic ride.
Still one of the best Sci-Fi-features masterpieces.

Love the classic comedies. I watched Charlie Chaplin's The Immigrant last night. The scene in the restaurant is wonderful.

Sunday, I was told (but by chance, Nothing to do with the discussion on the forum) that the original title of the film Le roi du volant (see below) is nit Motor Mad as there is no record of a film with that title from 1925. I will loan my copy for the "specialists" to look at it and find out the American title.

I watched my recently acquired 5 x 400 Super 8 B/W sound copy of the great Will Hay movie "Oh Mr Porter". I have never seen a 5 x 400 version of this before and it was a steal on eBay. Great print with just a couple of lab marks in places but not intrusive.
