You got "Lil Abner", did reel two play O.K.?
Hey Osi - yep, played well! Reel 3 dropped the lower loop twice, but nothing too bad . . . cleaned it with FilmGuard and mounted it on 2 800' reels. You're right about the old silent comedians, it was interesting spotting them in the movie, and going, "wait a minute, wasn't that xxxx" [Big Grin]

thanks!
Chip

Hi Gary,

I absolutely agree with you.

Flynn is the best of the best of the best Robin Hood ever.

But I know a more best Robin.

It's my son. He's born yesterday!

We have call him "Robin" because of Robin Hood played by Eroll..

Regards,

JC.

JEAN!!!

Many Happy returns to you on the birth of your son Robin!!

Perhaps in the future, they (yours and my son) will compare they're projectors with each other and screen films together! [Big Grin]

CONGRATULATIONS!!

STILL MORE PROOF THAT WE COLLECTORS DO IN FACT TEAR OURSELVES AWAY FROM THE MOVIE PROJECTORS!!

Last night we watched "The League of Gentlemen" 4x400ft (Powell I think) and "Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" 4x400ft (Niles). Great films, especially the first one as it has a stella cast.
Congratulations on the birth of little Robin Jean-Christophe, and thanks again for the print of "Gunga Din" which is just great and one of my favourite films, though I can't see myself naming any of my future children after the title character. [Big Grin]

Hey Jean,
congratulations to your son Robin!
Hope, everything is okay with your family.
Best regards,
Michael

Edit:
Ooops - I forgot to say, what I saw last night [Smile]
A wonderful and rare print of "Rear Window" with german sound.
I love such good Hitchcock's. Next year I will get "To catch a thief" - again one of my favorites.

Félicitations Jean-Christophe ! Welcome to the club. And the dad job hasn't taken me away from my projectors. On the contrary, we have family screenings now. Margaux saw Star Wars when she was only a few months old and she got mesmerized by the big spinning reels on the Elmo... [Wink]

Hi Jean-Marc,

And thank's everyone for your congratulation. Everyone are fine: mother and Robin.

Jean-Marc, no problem with the father's job. I've already have a little girl: Audrey, 4 1/2 years. We call her "audrey" because we like the little cartoon serie from Paramount" little Audrey". And now, she ask me to see good pictures with my projector: several cartoons like pinky panther, goldorak and Mickey and some features like "beauty and the beast", "jungle book", etc... But she also like some "Laurel & Hardy" short, and last week, she has seen some extract of "Grease".
Yes, she like movie and the good old cinema!
Un amour!

Regards,

Jean-Christophe.

Another night of Super 8 (I love the winter months, it gets dark nice and early). "Daleks Invasion Earth: 2150 AD" a lovely Walton feature with great colour apart from slight fade only on reel 3 for some reason. And "Vampyres" 4x400ft from Powell films, a little warm but all the colours were there. It's quite an explicit picture so it's definitely for mature audiences. Still it was good to see Michael Byrne in an early role many years before he came up against Indiana Jones.

Paul.

On television it's boring but on 3 neters great, lovely and fascinating [Smile]

At the end I checked the 1st Act of "The great race" full feature.

Best regards,
Michael

Had a nice Thanksgiving evening show, all in 16mm this time. I had to show a couple "turkeys" on Thanksgiving, so it was OFFICE ETIQUETTE, a 1950 classroom short that demonstrated how women should behave and act while working in an office. This was followed by a five minute U.S. Army Band reel of "THANKSGIVING DAY MUSIC". Next on the big screen was the 1951 classic short "A DAY OF THANKSGIVING" in which a turkey-less family reflects on their blessings. Enough with the "turkeys"; it was time to watch the feature. I was proud to show my IB Tech print of THE JOLSON STORY. My wife and visiting daughter, watching it for the first time, loved the film. The Basset Hounds fell asleep. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.

Received some trailers and commercials that I'd picked up from a previously unknown e-bay seller; spliced them together with a couple of other trailers to create a ten minute pre-feature reel.

Absolutely splendid colour in the trailers (30 second TV spots).

One of the adverts is from the early 70s for Armadillo (spelling?) Sherry. The background music being 'Is This The Way to Amarillo'. The unique selling point being that it's a draught sherry; you bring your empty bottles to the off license and they fill them from some very tacky looking plastic barrels! I think I actually recall seeing this when I was a kid.

Also screened my recently acquired Betty Boop's Rise to Fame. A pretty decent print only spoiled by the base line scratches from whatever intermediate print / negative it was make from.

THE STRANGER is most probably a Thunderbird release.It is listed in their catalog ,although there is not a Thunderbird logo on the film itself {printed from a reissue copy from Independent Releasing Corporation)

I ran a corny 16mm 1970's motor racing film/travelogue set around speed week on the Gold Coast here in Surfers Paradise called Thunder in Paradise. It is Gold if you love big V8 Australian muscle cars. It is now on ebay. Only selling as it features too many Fords and Holdens and not enough Mopars.

I also ran Von Ryans Express the Ken digest and Gerald McBoing Boing Columbia cartoon on my new Eumig S 940.

Well, started with the lion king and then went on to watch The Snowman followed up by a Christmas Caper.

Great films! I had forgotten how good Lion King was and a good sound track. Such a pity that my copy of Christmas Caper has such a poor soundtrack/must re-record it.

The snowman marks the start of christmas for us. It is a great s8 print-one from Ian of Perrys (thanks) and is in perfect shape.

I know it sounds sad, but running a film from the 1980's on a projector also from that era was superb. I admit that in about an hour I will go on to project a DVD b ut I still marvel at how a frame 8mm square can be reproduced on a largeish screen. Funny how I don' t think the same about those little binary numbers [Big Grin]

The Annual Turkeyfest continued Saturday evening with a wild 1941 soundie "PAPAYA" followed by "LET'S MAKE A PIE" in beautiful Kodachrome. The feature was one of the worst films ever made: the 1958 Paramount release "COUNTRY MUSIC HOLIDAY" starring Zsa Zsa Gabor and Rocky Graziano.

Screening Date Monday Night December 1st:

super 8 sound A Walt Disney Christmas 400' digest mixed clips of their cartoons with Xmas themes

DVD LCD National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Perhaps one of the funniest christmas movies ever made - The Griswald Family pure dysfuction & chaos at it's best :-)

This screening was actually the first time I did a changeover from super 8 directly to DVD. It took alittle pratice the night before, but the c/o was flawless when I wanted it to be. And oh my, the switch between super 8 analog mono to DVD Digital, not to mention going from 1:33 to 1:85 - just plain SWEEEEET!

:-)

CG

Screening Date Thursday night December 4th

TREAD SOFTLY STRANGER on super 8mm. From the late 1950's comes this crime drama with the very sexy Diana Dors. Two brothers decide to rob the safe where they work during the shift change.
