Dom,I didn't realise the title was nonexistent! So many of Al's comedies (and titles) deal around "speed" and "fast" that it is difficult to distinguish. This one must (or,may) be RACING MAD (1928).

After reading the thread about making sure you run Eumig projectors on a regular basis...I pulled my 810D and my 824 off the shelf and watched the Marx Brothers in A Night in Casablanca. Both machines ran great and the movie was funny as ever [Smile]

I've been giving my Eumig 824 a workout the last couple of nights. I have it set up for standard 8mm film since I have plenty of super8 projectors. It projects great to my cine room screen. Since I have to place the projector on a stand that is less than 15ft from the screen the picture doesn't quite fill the screen...but still big enough. Only 4-5 inches smaller all around. Last night I watched Tom Mix in "The Great K&A Train Robbery (3x400). Excellent contrast in this print!

A docummentary (silent) film called Excision. What is strange is that it's in a Mountain Film boxe with a label and a reference (AF3) but there is nor title nor The End, just a fade in and a fade out. I bought that films many years ago in a camera shop so I would be surprised it's not an official film but there is Something unusual. If anyone knows something about that title…

Dominique you amaze me with the variety of films in your collection.

Last night was more silent standard 8mm. Marvel movies have come a long long way since this early produced serial. I'm sure at the time it seemed really cool. [Smile] I am impressed with some of the flying effects however.

Over 35 years of collecting, Janice ;-)

Thanks, David. I'm surprised they released a film without any title and The End words.

Creature From The Black Lagoon, the Universal digest in 3D. Nothing to do with a modern 3D experience but the effect is there. I remember when the film was brodacasted on French tv in the eighties, it has been a big event, even in Belgium. Many people bought (or made) the request glasses to Watch the film. As a third of the audience (from what I read) cannot see the 3D effect, a lot of people were disappointed but I remember I was not. Second film, Paul's first Kiss, a silent American Lifeograph title for which I didn't find any information.

My Saturday night in front of the silver screen consisted of the Airport Quadrology (is that grammatically correct?)

In other words...

Airport 1x 400' / Airport'75 1x400' / Airport '77 1x400' / Airport '80 - The Concorde 2x 400'

I was going to treat myself to Airplane 3x 400' but wouldn't have had time. Instead, I finished on a completely different note:

1x 400' Disco Beaver From Outer Space ! - Remember THAT one?!!

Disco Beaver [Big Grin] I did sell mine on as it was fading but that Dracula mickey take was well good. I'm sure today it would offend all the do gooders though but it made me laugh.
This is the best thing about Super 8, all those well edited digests available make a great varied evenings entertainment [Wink]

My only viewing has been two Fletcher films,
Zulu 1400 and The Buccaneers and a scope trailer from Barry at Indi 8, Every which way but loose and it has great colours with no fade.

Three standard/regular films. The first, colour sound, Santa's Surprise (1947). Then, two (silent) James Finlayson films : Une belle famille and Le troisième larron (Internet says it's Up In Alf's Place but it doesn't look to be that title).

Here is again Mr know-it-all (me!) "Une belle famille" is "Yes,Yes,Nannette" (Roach,1925) and "Le troisieme larron" is "Hard Knocks and Love Taps" (Sennett,1921).

I screened the „Runaway Brain“ cartoon and the full feature of „The Fog“, the John Carpenter masterpiece in splendid Cinemascope.
This film hasn’t lost its fascination for decades...!
