I just screened WAR OF THE WORLDS, an edited 3 400foot reel version, which, while it is lacking the opening credits [Frown] has terrific color and is well edite. Those flying machines still rival any cgi effects today, even with those strings visible!!! [Wink] Another great DERANN purchase.

No sweat Chip! Good to hear. It was certainly an interesting piece of nolstalgia that actually hasn't really dated, (except Mary Kay, of course). [Big Grin] [Razz] [Roll Eyes]

Made another presentation to a History Society this evening, the show being dedicated to Laurel & Hardy.

I addressed the audience for about 15 minutes giving them a brief outline of L&H's lives,how they got together, Stan's genius the other side of the camera etc.

Then on with the S8mm show. Started with 'Perfect Day', 'Dirty Work' Laurel&Hardy's 'Musical Moments' which had sequences from Swiss Miss Way Out West and The Music Box, finishing the show with 'Towed In A Hole'

The show was very well recieved with laughter again filling the hall. The only downside was the GS let me down yet again just after setting up. I always take the 1200HD as a reserve and it peformed beautifully.

Yesterday I re-record the Derann-Feature of Star Trek VII-Generations to German Sound. I had recorded the Original Sound to the second track. Today I will show again to check the synchronicity.

I recorded with an Revue Lux Sound 80 and check with an Elmo ST1200-HD.

Screened the following films to retired Great Western Railway staff this afternoon in a local social club.
"West Of Darlington" "Black Five" "Ride Of The 480" and "Tracks Around The Island". Total running time was one hour.
This was the first try of the Fuji ESC lamp. See my post on Kev's thread for the result.

I never accept money for these shows so I was given an invitation to join the members for a three course Christmas lunch in 3 weeks time. They did the same thing last year and it's hard to believe another year has passed.
A free lunch and bringing 8mm to a wider audience can't be bad [Smile]

Last night I had to replace the exciter lamp and one of the belts on my Elf RM1, so I used the opportunity to watch "Jungle Jim in the Forbidden Land", a recent ebay acquisition with Johnny Weismuller. He fought hippos and crocodiles, panthers, hairy giants and assorted bad guys. It was so exciting I had to lie down and rest afterwards. [Big Grin]

Yesterday I've projected "The Man With The Golden Gun", a very good print, flat unfortunately, with good colors and in original version with subtitels.

And last week, it was time to view one more time "AIRPORT '77" in great scope and colors.
WAW!

Hey Chip!

You got "Lil Abner", did reel two play O.K.? It looked a little hinky. It was interesting to see Buster Keaton later in his career, but not too late. Actually, if you look at the credits, (or on the internet), you'll find quite a number of the silent comedians (desperate for work in the early forties) in that film, like the great Chester Conklin!

As for me, it was the first part of the Scope Feature, BEN HUR!

It reminds me of that great Groucho Marx joke ...

" I was once in a two person stage play of Ben Hur ...

She played Ben ... and I played her! "

(wiggle of eyebrows!)

Which reminds me, I think I'll pull out the Marx Brothers Feature "Night in Casablanca", not absolutely vintage Marx Brothers, but not that bad either!

Mal,

I've got the 400' Super 8 Sound of 'A Night In Cassablanca' along with the 16m full version. The 8mm one is not a great edit; it's been a while since I watched it, but I'm 90% certain that it's just the last 20 mins of the full feature.

I need some space, so if you want the Super 8 version it's yours for the cost of postage. (Or any old, beaten up railway print you'd like to dispose of [Smile] ) Contact me at stewart.mcsporran at ntlworld dot com if you're interested.

Hi Stewart,
Thanks for the generous offer but I had the S8 400ft version and as you say it's just the last 18 minutes or so.
I also had a standard 8 4 X 400ft copy, that was a bit splicey and the editing was choppy.

As for the rail films, I'm hanging on to those. Just placed an order for a few more with Ian at Perry's.
regards,
Mal

Mal,

Personally, I liked the edit of it as , as a general rule, they just got rid of the romantic subplot, which I always felt was the only thing that dragged down a Marx Brothers film. I thought the onlt poor part of the film, quite frankly, was the whole ending (except for the last gag), with the airplane. That might work for Abbott and Costello or Marin and Lewis, but it seemed beneath the Marx Brothers.

One piece of VERY RARE super 8 I'd like to find is a print of the 400ft release of "Deputy Seraphim". It was the collected pieces of film that were shot for the proposed last Marx Brothers project, shot in 1959, where the Marx Brothers are angels that go and screw things up on the earth. Unfortunately,
Chico was in ill health and couldn't remember his lines for even a few moments. harpo and Groucho, however, were just fine. It should be noted however, that Chico was also medicated for some reason (the reason escapes me) and so he wasn't up to his regular standards.

It was never finished.

I've only seen a few of these bits and pieces, but there was a 400ft release of I believe, all the bits and pieces, and I've only seen one copy on ebay, (it sold for about 70.00 dollars if I remember correctly).

If anybody on the forum has this title, please let me know, as I'd love to track down who released it and if I could have a chance at finding a copy

Hi Panayotis,

I hope you're pleased with the print of 'The Stranger'! I seem to have misplaced your email address. Could you send it to me? (my email address is in my profile).

Best,

- Rob

Classic feature film, that "Tender Mercies" and good sound, but it is the ONLY optical feature I have ever ran into with a marginal focus.

After doing 2 Race Nights (at 2 different Golf Clubs) I needed a treat, so on Sunday evening I watched (on a 1200D) '100 yrs Underground' (again!) and 'Night Mail' and 'Movie Man'. In 16mm I watched a couple of docs and ' The Punch & Judy Man'. All very pleasant.

I don't know. The print came in generic plastic cases. It might be on the leaders. Maybe Panayotis can check. It's a very nice print.
