Last Night my wife and I watched "The Geisha Boy" (Pinnacle Films), a very nice print from a great negative, but the color is fading, some scenes great, some scenes not so great, but one of Jerry's best, (in my opinion).

Just love that original "Vista Vision" titles!

Hi,

Last week, it was "MARCH OR DIE", a marketting featurette, 3x400ft, in frensh dubbing. Colors are slightly faded but gene Ackman was great, like always. And some trailers: return of the living dead, Hellraiser 2, 3 and 4, etc...

Yesterday, it was: " BLACK SUNDAY", the full feature film in super 8. Good featuere, great sharp picture and good colors. Next time, it will be "DESTINATION INNERSPACE".

Regards,

JC.

Last night we had a great film show using the Fujica SD Auto projector that I hadn't used for a long while. These are really nice little Mag/Opt projectors that perform really well. We started with "North Sea Hijack" (U8 2 x 400ft). This was a recent ebay aquisition with excellent color and sound. We followed this with "Lust for a Vampire" (Derann 4 x 400ft). This was one of the films which I bought from Umit (see earlier posts). This was another great print, I wish all my other Derann 4 x 400ft colour features were still this good. Finally we watched "Stand In" (a Barry Wiles Film 5 x 400ft). This was another ebay buy and it was a pleasant surprise as I had never seen this film before. It stars Leslie Howard, Joan Blondell, Humphrey Bogart and Jack Carson in a great romantic comedy film set in a Hollywood film studio being deliberately run down so that it can be taken over. Howard plays a stuffy accountant sent in to check the finances, uncovers the plot, falls in love with Joan Blondell, loses his stuffiness and with Bogart's help saves the studio and everyones jobs. Great stuff!

Does it count as a 'showing' if I'm watching by myself??

Today I showed (myself) "Inspector Willoughsby: Hide and Seek (200'), War of the Planets (50') and The Lively Set (50').

The crowd went wild!

Most definately watching by yourself is classed as "showing". My audience consisted only of my good lady Tania (she who MUST be obeyed) and myself. As it was her print of "North Sea Hijack" I had to let her attend the "showing". [Wink]

Last night, we had a double feature, first, "When's Your Birthday?"
(which has a neat 5 minute cartoon introduction to the movie animated by a very young Bob Clampett, his first directing job, in fact), 4X400 Joe E Brown comedy and ...

My name is Nobody (scope 4X400), slightly edited feature, but keeping all the best bits. Henry Fonda's last western, and Terrence Hill's best (in my opinion). beautiful German print.
Though Tonino officially directed it, it appears that Sergio Leone, (who produced) did most of the important direction. It would be Leone's last western as well.

Had to try out the EJL bulb in the GS-1200 (about 20% dimmer, but hey, better than nothing), so naturally some viewing was needed! Short show of
--Heart of the Golden West (3x400) Roy Rogers -- fuzzy Niles print
--Goofy's Golden Gags
--an old Kodachrome movie from my childhood that looked better than I ever remembered it

Great to hear the kids' laughter and amazement.

I need to get stuff ready to put on the table at the next BFCC. A nice excuse to get the projector out. Last night I watched a Blackhawk S8 print of 'Seventh Heaven' (Frank Borzage, US, 1927). A beautiful film. It had a home made music track, which I didn't like very much, so I watched it silent. I was going to run only part of it, but before I knew it, 2 hours were gone and the protagonists were reunited just before ' The End' titles.

The problem with watching films before selling it is, that so many times I think that I don't really want to sell it after all... (but I have to be strong)

Yesterday night I showed to myself "Peck's Bad Boy" with Jackie Coogan and "In the Days of the Thundering Herd" with Tom Mix, both in Super 8. One night before I watched Bela Lugosi's "White Zombie" on 16mm. I enojoyed all of them, especially Mr. Lugosi's performance.

Last weekend, I had a nice super-8 scope show for my niece's kids (age 4 to 12).

I showed:

Star Wars- reel 4, the last 30 minutes of the feature.

Superman II (Derann's one hour digest).

Barbeque Brawl (Scope Tom & Jerry).

King Kong scope trailer (new CHC release).

It was a great show, and all that in under 2 hours!

One-man show here tonight; I just ran my recently gotten "The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe" in 16mm, a great French spy farce, all to myself (I was laying the print over onto one big reel, so it's not as sad as it sounds [Big Grin] )

Very funny film; I have never had any desire to see the US remake.
Good print, some scratches, but very nice color and sound.

I'm really enjoying this forum - that's worrying in itself! Now I'm talking to myself (it IS boring - but I HAVE to listen!). This evening I tried out an ST1200D with a packed 800ft '100 years Undergound' (guess what that was about?) and then a 16mm copy of 'Wrong Arm of the Law' - and all the while 'Er Indoors was watching telly in the front room. It ain't a bad life, really.

David, its fantastic to have you on board. [Cool]

I hope every now and then you watch that Potato film again. [Big Grin] I bought from you a colour film of it and its excellent [Smile] [Roll Eyes] [Big Grin] . Quickest way to empty a room bar none.

Hi everyone,

Last night, it was time to see once again: "AIRPORT '77", 16mm, original version, in great scope, with great colors! I think it's the 10th time I see the film. But, it's one of my favortie and a very important film in my life. Great! Great! Great!

This afternoon, I show 3 condensed version in super 8: Midway; The Eiger Sanction and The Boston Strangler. Great!

Claus, did "The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe" in original frensh version?

Regards,

JC.

Jean-Christophe,

The original French one, yes, with subtitles. I will not watch a dubbed film; I'd rather skip it [Wink]

Have been watching "Cattle Queen of Montana" on the reel per night plan with my son, with a different Bugs Bunny cartoon before each reel.

Just ran my latest buy from Derann the 1x400ft of THE WAR OF THE WORLDS a nice digest and the box art is great!
another wee suprise was that it had the Marketing Films cataloge from 1980-81 in it and it is nice to read about all the great films that came out around then on super 8.

Since our film setups are so labor-intensive, and not being totally enamored with Halloween anyway, I haven't ever tried to do anything filmic on that date. But this year, seeing as it conveniently fell on a Friday, we went a completely unique direction. I put together a show of a different kind: for Reformation Day, seeing as 10/31/1517 was when Martin Luther posted some statements on a door and the world reeled. (No pun intended! Or maybe it was!) So we had about 10 people join us and watched an authentic 1950s movie show (16mm except as noted):
Donald Duck in "Inferior Decorator," the only concession to the kids! (Super 8)
Trailers for "Campobello," "Tumbleweeds," and "King's Row"
Fox Newsreel: "Impact of Tragedy" (retitled "Filming the Crashes" by Blackhawk, Super 8)
A Son of Zorro serial, "The Deadly Millstone," from 1946
Martin Luther (1953)

Gave a presentation to a church group of twenty people in their hall this evening.
They requested a one hour show with Tom&Jerry and Laurel&Hardy.
The programme in order:
The Truce Hurts; Helpmates; Two Little Indians; Busy Bodies; Triplet Trouble.
The audience age group was 50+ so as you would expect the show went down really well with laughter filling the hall.
Had a few questions afterwards about film collecting and cinema in general,two in particular showed a lot of interest. (gave the BFCC a plug!)
Laurel & Hardy on TV are enjoyable but put them on a big screen [7ft wide tonight] in front of an audience and something magical happens, their genius shines through.
I have another presentation next week for a History Society and by coincidence they also asked for Stan and Ollie.
regards,
Mal

Held a fabulous little evening in the common room of our condo this past weekend - an evening of classic terrors in 16mm and Super 8 format, for about 15 friends, most of whom had never enjoyed a home cinema experience.

The bill was as follows:

- Witchfinder General (b&w silent digest) - S8
- King Kong (sound digest) - S8
- Castle of Death (b&w silent digest of Vampire Circus) - S8
- The Devil Rides Out (fabulous clr sound S8 digest I just
acquired from Derann)
- Reel 1 of The House That Dripped Blood (16mm clr sound
feature)
- Dracula (clr sound digest of the Langella film) - S8
- Reel 2 of the House That Dripped Blood

The whole evening was quite a hoot, and everyone really enjoyed themselves. It capped-off a really fun Halloween weekend, which started on the 30th with me hosting an evening of classic horror on TV in these parts. Can you tell I'm a classic horror flick junkie?

Next time, it will be an evening of Sherlock Holmes items... can't wait!

Cheers, all...
Anthony
