Last night was Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines.
A favourite ever since I first saw it when I was around 12-13 years.

It has just been easter, and then you really should watch one film, and I did that yesterday. What I am talking about? Well, Ben-Hur of course. Feature, Derann copy.

I just can't understand why, when the left side of the picture is perfect, the right side of the picture is slight faded and with muted colors. This is nothing that have happened over the years, but it was so from when I bought it new. Maybe some fault in the negative?
And then there is the reversed stereo soundtrack.

Otherwise it's one of my top favourite films.

Lars...I just borrowed a few odd reels of BEN HUR in scope from a friend to screen and the right side of the picture was lighter and slightly muted. I watched them in my basement cinema during the day and although I have it pretty well dark down there, there is just a little bit of light leakage on the right side of the screen and I thought this was the cause. I did screen one of the reels at night and it still appeared lighter on the right side. So, I would say that it probably was from the neg.

Gian,

There is not anything in the world as grand as Imbibition technology.
Just drink in those color dyes!
Ahhhh, saturated with deep color, and look at those deep color reds!

Let alone a great cast - including Buddy Ebsen and Mickey Rooney.

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great

Yesterday, an afternoon of film sampling with fellow forum member Daniel Aveline.

- Star Wars III opening scene (r1 + half r2) with DTS sound
- Assorted super 8 scope trailers (Independence Day, Broken Arrow, Wild Wild West, The Mummy, Sleeping Beauty, The Black Hole)
- My Name is Nobody (Marketing's 400 + 300ft reels + U8 digest spliced together and retracked)
- Opening reel of "You Only Live Twice" in glorious scope

 -

Daniel had purchased the film brand new from CHC at the last BFCC. Print is superb, great colours, powerful mono sound, slight grain.

Yesterday evening on BD: The Hangover (that one will clearly become one of my new cult films).

Yesterday afternoon: El Cid, original Lone Wolf edition.

Then on the evening something odd happened. A little over two months ago I bought The Woman in Red on 8mm, optical sound. Being a airline copy I assumed it would be slightly edited since it is about adultery. Not having seen the movie after it's release back in 1983 I was not shure what, if anything, was missing. Then a couple of days ago it was aired on Canal+ here in Sweden, and I recorded it on my HD-DVD. Yesterday evening I saw it, and to my great surprise there was scenes missing. After watching the "film version" i put on the 8mm on the GS1200 and timed it with the counter. Yes there are some slight edits, especially in the scenes at the end, in the bedroom. But those omissions can't make more than 30 seconds. Two major scenes are still in the film, but are different takes, probably made deliberately for TV. But, and this is a big but, there are several scenes that are prolonged with additional material, and several completly new scenes are added. When recalculating the figures on the counter I found that the 8mm version is 92 minutes long. That is no less than five minutes longer than the theatrical cut, according to IMDB (87 minutes).

I always thought that airline prints, if not in original versions, where shorter than the theatrical original, so what happened here?

I'm not complaining, this makes the 8mm copy much more desirable in my opinion, since this version don't seem to be around on DVD, despite the recent trend of extended cuts.

Does anybody know if there is another film on 8mm optical that is longer than the theatrical cut, if there is one there must be atleast one more, or have they all been destroyed?

Wow those colors on those films, truly amazing.

With my 'measely' 40's Bell and Howell Filmo Regent Regular 8mm
I viewed a Blackhawk print of Birth of a Nation. Riveting filmmaking and a gorgeous print. What incredible photography by Bitzer and great silent film performances directed by the master, DW Griffith.
