Who put these out on Super 8 James?

Back in the 1990's I explored Harlem, The Apollo Theatre and around the Martin Luther King Blvd (125th St) district. It is a facinating place, very culturally rich.

It feels a bit offbeat to watch a television show using a 16mm projector. This was the 1965 episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show "The Redcoats are Coming" with Chad & Jeremy being quite funny.

David and Panayotis-

These were released by Moredcraft Films in the 1980's, which had formerly been Thunderbird Films. They had a good variety of movies on super 8 / 16mm, and had many all-black cast movies, which was rare on super 8.

By the way, "Black and Tan" was also a Morecraft release, and contains the original credits and RKO Pictures at the beginning and end. I have not seen the Blackhawk print, but I would imagine that they probably put their own titles on the movie instead [Mad] .

Did Thunderbird put out their own catalogue James? I have others that include some of their films, but never recall seeing a Thunderbird only one.

That must be one of the few episodes I've never seen.

When NICK AT NITE was running it back in the '90s I kept waiting for the one where Dick does his Stan Laurel impression, but I never caught it. I must have watched it for 5 years without seeing that one. I do remember seeing it on Channel 11 (WPIX in New York) back in the '70s.

I always found the opening line of the show unintentionally funny. "The Dick Van Dyke Show...starring...Dick Van Dyke!"
Duh!
[Big Grin]

And, of course, "With Rose Marie, Morey Amsterdam, Larry Matthews, and Mary TYLER Moore!"

David yes Thunderbird put out catalogs that looked like newspapers, you can also find the morecraft catalogs that are usually listed as video catalogs, but it has all of the titles that Thunderbird released on film. .

Last night, watched the last two chapters of Congo Bill (14 & 15). Spent about a month watching the whole thing on Super 8. Lots of fun.

James, do you have the Blackhawk Super 8 print of "St. Louis Blues" with Bessie Smith? It's a good one, but you probably know that.

Last night I watched my 16mm print of the Hitchcock classic "The 39 Steps." Madeleine Carroll really lights up the screen.

It was on August 1st 1935 that this British feature was first shown in the United States. So exactly 75 years ago to the day.

Gian ... nice shots!

I am just wondering for the last 3 screen shots, they have different color tone . Is that your camera or the reels were indeed printed like that?

cheers

Thanks a lot, James [Wink] ..

Hi Wibert. No different camera settings: the print itself is on Eastman. But some sections are holding color better than others.

BTW, it's not possible to find better copies, since all the ones that were released are like this.
Ciao.

Nice to see this on super 8mm. I have a copy on 16mm and love this movie. It is very rare indeed, hang on to it.

Been playing around with my LUX projector but always been disappointed with the light output on the screen. Partially this is because of the obvious restrictions based on the start/stop of the notched titles (you wouldn't want to burn the frames), but the other reason is because the lenses in 1930 were much slower. Never one to accept defeat, I finally realized that the specto lenses fit in nicely as long as I slip a small sleeve around them. This roughly doubled the light output I was getting from my quick 50w halogen mod...The film I watched was an 80 year old 9.5mm print of a 1924 J. Stuart Blackton Vitagraph silent feature entitled BELOVED BRUTE (Pathescope retitled Unto the Strong 2 x 300ft notched S676) a cutdown version but all you can get of this film starring Victor McLagen who is best known for his later films, and Marguerite De La Motte who was previously in Mark of Zorro with Douglas Fairbanks. This has a very different title sequence from most of the Pathescope releases.
