No super 8 show, tonight (but I'm planning the next one for tomorrow eh eh eh).

 -

Great movie on DVD: CINDERELLA MAN. What an incredible story was Jimmy Braddock's. So perfect setting, great actors, very detailed plot. I must admit I love Howard's movies. And this is one of my favorite.

Even if set during the very worst moments of American (and, in general, global) Economic Depression, the will I have every time I watch this movie is to close my eyes for a while to try to imagine how people were feeling, living, in such a terrible, difficult context.

The movie is so well directed that I can really feel those realities, those moods. I'm in there, next to people fighting for something. To survive, above all. And when I open my eyes back I wonder if we would act the same way, nowadays. I mean, global financial crisis in 2009 too. But would we fight for the milk?
Oh well, only personal remarks.

I love that movie. And my English is not so perfect to be in a position to express myself the way I would like to. [Wink] .

Great to see that Hitchcock classic, thanX.

Gian, it appears that "The Million Dollar Duck" has aged better than "Snowball Express". One of the worst kind of films for color fade are films that take place in the snow ...

Fore gawds sake! Don't eat the brown snow. DON'T EAT THE BROWN SNOW!!!

Great Line-up John ...

"I Had a Little Friend ..."

(John will get it!)

Tonight, some more Universal 8 digests!

Animal House!
Smokey and the Bandit 2 (Perhaps the best smash-up of Cop cars on film, except, perhaps, "Blues Brothers")

But Foist ... Three Stooges

Disorder in the Court! (unknown film company, I don't think it's a Columbia release. It's a very good print, though.)

But FOIST, before that ...

Rabbit Fire! (Rabbit season! Duck Season!) Red Fox

BUT FOIST ... FOIST!! A Trailer!

"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"

A favorite of mine, as it had one of the last appearances of Buster Keaton on the big screen! Cantenbury Films print.

Peter...nice shots of Foreign Correspondent!

I'm hoping someday to have some more Hitchcock features in my collection. On super 8 I have NOTORIOUS and 39 STEPS. On 16mm I have SABOTAGE, SECRET AGENT and TOPAZ(IB Tech).

Peter yes nice shots... That is the only Hitchcock I have, makes me want to break it out for a screen.

John - great shows..definitely some classics in there...I may have asked already but does your train robbery print have the colored bits? I have had a couple of prints over the years but really now just want one with the the colored bits and music track..

I have been silent for awhile (haha in more ways than one [Razz] ) because I have a new Pathex Baby I have been working on obsessively, but today started the 3day weekend so I watched a feature before heading out to play a gig (which is why I am up so late)...A recent ebay purchase that I got for a steal (one of the very few). A super rare Elaine Hammerstein film called Paint and Powder(1925) not to be confused with the Eddie Boland comedy short of the same name....AARRGH just realized I have that one too I could have made it a theme night [Mad] ..Anyway it was a standard 8 silent print on 2 x 400ft. It was a little soft but had all the original titles (even some original reel change leaders). Both reels had some of those rust spots and the second had some unusual scratching but it was still not too bad.. A decent little "rise to fame" melodrama with a very artistic ending...

Yesterday i screened the following:

1. "Buck Rogers" 2x400 Universal edited onto 600. I had not seen this for at least 10 years and was pleasantly surprised to see that it had almost no fading at all.
According to markings a Eastman print with date code for 1976.

2. "Too Late The Hero" 5x400 featurette. This one had turned really brown, making the long night scenes around the first reel change, really hard to se what was happening sometimes. But in the daylight scenes it was not that annoying, probably because it is 90% in a jungle and everything is green.

3. "A Fish Called Wanda" 3x600 optical sound. No fading at all, but being from 1988 I would suspect low fade had by then become practice in optical film printing.

Dino - My Great Train Robbery is all B&W, no sound stripe.

By the way, my Cattanooga Cats still has amazing color for its age, here's a piece of it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GVv2yIf5X8

The seller claimed it was Fuji color. I've heard on here that Waltons keep their color pretty well, and this is proof! [Eek!]

That "Paint and Powder" looks interesting...wish I had it on Super 8!

Lars ...

That is very interesting about "Buck Rogers", as it shows the truth that while the film may come out in a specific year, the film stock can be, perhaps years earlier. The movie came out in 1979, the film stock, three years earlier!

Osi,i believe the "Disorder in the Court" is a Niles print.

I have the 400foot version in the orange Niles box,but sadly the number has worn from the side of the box,hope this helps.

Last night myself and a few friends had a beer and movie night.
The line up was:

Waltons 200ft Trailer Selection No2,Callen,One Million Years BC,Percys Progress,Shalaco (A.860)Color,sound.

Universal Eights 200ft(Walton Film)Stock Car 500 Callenge
(2812)Color(slight fade)sound.

Universal Eights 200ft(Walton Film)Demolition Derby(2803)color,sound.

Columbias 400ft The Flintstones,The Twitch(FL 4018)Color sound.

Marketing Films 3x400ft When Worlds Collide(1061,62,63)Color sound.

All prints have held up well with just one starting to fade.

Its was a great Summers night and everyone enjoyed themselfs getting a kick out of seeing a good Super 8 night for the first time [Smile]

Bill and Dino, thanks, I love the old Hitchcocks. Sabotage and Notorious are on my want-list [Smile]

Last night some 16mm shorts, one of them a trailer for the 7th Voyage of Sindbad. A color feature, but the trailer is in B&W, very nice.

Barrie...I have a couple of the 400' Flintstones and they all have excellent color and sound...these seem to hold up good.

Also, being from Ohio it's very odd to hear January and summer night in the same sentence! [Smile]
