In 8mm - 'Snowman' ('cos of the song) [although I've got it in 16mm as well - which doesn't have the song] - and 'Mickey's Parrot', a Pathe News from 1969/70 (B/W) and 'Joey Boy' "comedy" with Harry H. Corbett - all 16mm.
It didn't stop me eating too much!!!! Merry Thingy etc.
Cheers, David E

Congrats to David for being the 2000th post on the thread... [Big Grin]

and why does Shorty only have 2 posts??weird...anyway tonights screening was something that I NEVER do, and to be honest I don't know how you "scope" guys do it, you must have HUGE screening areas..I usually use a 6 foot screen and I am really happy, but I had to squeeze it down to about 2 1/2 ft x 6ft to minimize the overflow for tonights screening....I ran my Elmo 16-CL with my 2 inch lens and elmoscope. Since I don't have a dedicated scope attachment I used a tripod to steady the lens..The film was an absolutely gorgeous 3 x 1600ft LPP, Scope print with no splices and no lines of THE THING (1982)complete until the blue band R rating...The final image of the universal tag shows the level of bleed I was getting on my 6 foot screen.

Dino-You lucky, lucky man. Wow! What a great print. Did you know they are releasing Battleship Potempkin in 35mm soon?

Just a side note-At the time of production of The Thing I knew one of the guys at VCE who were doing some of the effects and they were doing the main title, and the production wanted the main title to look like the original but weren't supplied any film to see what it looked like. No video of it back then. As it was I had a super 8mm copy and I lent it to them. And they did a great job of copying the original look.

Larry ... I guess a big thank you is due, because it is definitely a nice way to open the new version with an homage to the old (and by new I mean the version of 28 years ago)...

Thanks Gian....Oh and those other reels haven't arrived yet

OK so my experiment continued today..I have a handful of scope movies that I never watch so I thought I would see how a couple of them look this week...The first one looked great but was small, todays' did not look as great since it is on fading Eastman, but it is still small, and has sent me running back to the old films again...This afternoon I watched on 16mm, FLASH GORDON (1980, 3 x 1600) one of my guilty pleasures.....OH who am I kidding I love most bad movies. But since I don't see my situation changing anytime soon this one will probably lose the rest of its color by the time I get a large enough screening area for scope films. ..Then it was back to the old ones so I watched an Our Gang comedy called Buried Treasure (1926, 9.5mm Pathex O-48, 2 x 300ft) which is actually incredibly rare in terms of 9.5 films in that it has all its original titles from start to finish..This was followed by FAUST (1926, Pathescope SB740 4 x 300ft) which is one of the many great UFA titles available on 9.5mm. A good day of film all in all......Oh and the 16mm was the same set up as the other day, and for 9.5 I used my trusty Specto with a 1 inch lens to fill the 6 foot screen..

Today was Monty Banks night in the Everett household with a screening of Voleur malgré lui (aka A Perfect Gentleman)(1928)on 9.5mm (5 x 300ft Film Office). This was his final film made here in the US, and one of his few feature length silent comedies. Interesting note...The ship that is featured in the film is the SS. Ruth Alexander which was an early German ship that was later sold to a US company and used as an ocean liner before ultimately being sunk on December 31st, 1941 by Japanese torpedoes.

I have lately been going thru some educational films i recently bought om 16MM.
I have also been testing and trying to get some pictures and think I finally have (maybe) gotten the hang of it.

One of the film I got was one that I remember seeing when I was in school.
It's about how the brain sometimes misinterprets the signals from the eyes, in this instance if it is a room with "wrong" angles.

The film is originally made in 1959 and is 17 minutes long.
The sprocketarea is black and there is no markings to show what kind of filmstock this is, but as you see it has great colors.

Quite worn, as you can expect from a ex-library print, but still highly enjoyable.

The last film I ran in 2010.

I've been home on vacation this week, so we've been watching "When the North Wind Blows" two reels per night with a cartoon or a home movie first.

We saw the 300 foot travelogue I did of our trip to Germany and Austria in 2002. It may be the end of Kodachrome speaking here, but it looks better and better with time.

Panayotis I am assuming Film Office released everything on both formats?

Well I welcomed in the new year with a short 15 minute 16mm promo film promoting the 1973 tour by Alice Cooper which later was expanded into the feature Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper (1974). In the promo Alice sings the song "I Love the Dead" so the perfect follow up was the best film ever about the dead, as in the walking dead DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) on 16mm. The 126 minute version which is on fading eastman, but it still has all the colors...Pretty great start to the new year in my eyes.... [Smile]

to the best of my knowledge (and I think most horror film collectors) there are no official nor unofficial Low fade prints of Dawn out there, which is why people cling to their eastman prints.

The Last week was a big Star Wars Week, because I watched Episodes 4,5 and 6 first time with my son (5 years old) together on DVD.
Yesterday I was outbid on ebay as I tried to win a S8 Derann print of Star Wars a new hope. My bid was 357 Euro but it went for 372,99 Euro.
After that I was frustrated and watched all 3 Special edition trailers on Super 8. And after this screening I was more frustrated, because Star Wars looks realy nice on Super 8.

On 16MM, a documentary about World War I.
Produced by Encyclopedica Brittanica Film.
With Swedish titles and speaker.

 -

 -

 -

 -

 -

 -

 -

 -

Runtime approximately 15-20 minutes.
It has a somewhat soft focus and some limited wear and tear, but some of the lines may come from the material they used and are not on the acctual print.
Contains some really interresting pieces of film and still pictures.

Next up are three films about World War II.

Great screen shots, guys.

Dino, my copy on super 8 is the European cut. Full-lenght, but shorter than the original US version, as far as I know.
Kodak SP stock; good color, but on the brown side... [Frown]
