On 16MM three documentary films about the second world war.
All with original titles but Swedish speaker.
I remember seeing these at least twice (during a three year period) when I was in school. They contain some really grusome material at times. I remember that during screening of part three, when there was scenes from a concentration camp, two girls left the room and one acctually fainted, we were only around 14-15 years old at the time.
So you can see that it has been hard to find pictures to upload.

I also like to apologise if anyone finds some of the pictures offensive, but you can hardly make a documentary about WW II whitout including the imagery of the times it portrays.

The first part is called Prelude to conflict and covers the time from 1919 to 1939. It's 27 minutes long.

Pictures from parts two and three will follow.

Part two of the WW II documentary is called Triumph of the Axis and covers the first half of the war, when nothing seemed to go wrong for the axis.

This part is 21 minutes long.

Part three of the documentary is called Allied Victory and is 26 minutes long.

Beginning with a quote from Churchill "Before Alamein, we had no victories. After Alamein, we had no defeats." it starts there and ends with the question wheter or not this ever will happen again.

So, there you have it, 74 minutes of WW II, and it's really interesting, all the important events are covered and a lot of scenes that have become iconic are included.

I am going to take a look at some films about the medieveal period next. Hopefully I will get some pictures to display here.

I watched the US version of Godzilla Raids Again (1955) entitled GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER a super rare print on 16mm that I am currently selling..

Just to make Dino envious - Sat 8 Jan I did a show for Group 9.5 St. Gabriels - but in 16mm this time!

The feature was ‘Joey Boy’ from 1965 of which Halliwell’s say:- “Abysmal service comedy, incredibly cheap and tatty and the nadir of several of the talents involved!” (So I KNEW I’d like it!! DE)

MFB (in Halliwell’s) says:- “As visually shoddy as it is unfunny … the final shot (Corbett pulling a lavatory chain) is all too crudely apt.”

DE (That’s me, folks!) says:- “I bought this film (from Tony Hutchinson of Syston, who else?) ‘cos, although I’m not a great Corbett fan (I’ve seen him in film, on TV & on stage and thought him rather one-dimensional) I did like all those other British character actors involved. I liked it on first viewing and even on the 2nd and 3rd viewings. However – after 8 or 10 runs (whilst making up the programme) I have got more than a little bored!!”

To start the programme off, there were some ads - Pears Shampoo, HP Baked Beans, Plumrose Hot Dog Sausages, Alka Selter, Hoover Steam/Dry Iron (with Cicely Courtnedge!) - all with P&D (new) open & close. Then a cartoon (Mickey’s Parrot, 1937); a couple of trailers – ‘Jolson Story’ & ‘Tough Guys’ (Lancaster & Douglas) which got me accused of racism and ageism by a VERY PC member!!; a newsreel (Pathe B/W from 1969) and to lead into the feature, a splendid 30s “infomercial” for ‘Stephenson’s Non-Slip Polish’. The 1st part of the feature (and the 1st reel) ends with an ‘Intermission’ (and ‘The Snack Bar is Open’) title. After refreshments (and our chaps/chapesses make a donation of £1.50 which is NOT just for tea/coffee & bickies, it also helps to pay the rent for the room!) Reel 2 has a very short ice cream advert (blink and you’ve missed it!), a ‘Part Two’ title and after that is quite straightforward. Finally, in B/W, a young HM the Queen on horseback at the trooping of the colours with the National Anthem!!

Now - for my sins - I'm also going to be doing the prog on 22 Jan - so I'll have to look round for more un-PC items!!

David, yes I am jealous as always of the G95 get togethers and still counting the days until my potential one and only attendance.. Was the advert reel the CHC "UN-PC" one that Phil has? If not you should look into it for the next show....That being said I think the most offensive part of the evening must have been the following:
quote:
Finally, in B/W, a young HM the Queen on horseback at the trooping of the colours with the National Anthem!!
Trooping of the colours in B/W?...... How dare you sir, How dare you? [Razz]

Just turned off the 3585 after watching an LPP War Games. My 11 year old was sitting at the edge of his seat. He really got into the movie. Although I had to explain the old computer stuff to him in the movie. [Razz]

War Games was great, part of a string of fun movies from director John Badham. It also stars John Wood, one of my favorites.

Last night was a look at a number of films recently received from Barry Atwood. Thank you Barry!

The Beautiful Briny Disney excerpt from Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. Walton 2x200'

Update on War Games, my son was still talking about it today and asking more questions.

Tonight I only watched one short. Re-watched my grainy print of Precious Images.

Dino, m,dear - Aesthetically (!) 'The Queen HAD to be in B/W as the feature, newsreel etc were B/W. More honestly - in 16mm the last two Royal playouts (1 for George VI and one for Her Maj [ or, as my late brother-in-law - a rabid lefty - referred to her 'Betty Windsor'] were on fleabay and went for £80 for the King one and £50 for the Qeen one!!!! I got 2 B/W ones - 1 sound, 1 silent - for about £10. By the way, I've booked the hotel, booked the exhibition halls, booked the cinema museum, booked the motor coaches and nearly booked the visit to a stately home & safari park for September!!
Cheers, David E

Just so that anyone who knows about my current fundraising campaign will know I am not selling everything, I watched a film that ain't for sale tonight...This was the final film by one of my absolute favorite stars, Norma Talmadge, called DU BARRY (1930)(sometimes called DuBarry, Woman of Passion)and a film that often gets a bad rap...Sometimes they say it ended her career, but that's not true. Her career ended because she was 36 and did not want to start playing the "older lady" roles..This film does have its problems though, as do most early sound films, but it subtly has some great visuals as well such as the quick little shot of Talmadge/DuBarry slipping her revolutionary lovers' blood soaked rag into the jewelry box filled with trinkets purchased from the blood of the people. Unfortunately the story plays for a 1930 audience and assumes everyone is well familiar with the Belasco play, which apparantly even in 1930 they were not so it gets confusing....That being said it is a rare print and a gorgeous 1930's original on 16mm..

Continuing with educational films on 16MM I have seen Roland becomes a Knight. It covers three occasions in the life of Roland, and his tutoring to become a knight. First we se him as a 7 year old in 1192, then as 14 in 1199, and finally as 20 in 1205.
There are no markings to indicate when the copy is from and as you see it's extremely red, but somehow it fits being as it is set during the middle ages. All kinds of credits are unfortunately missing. It's 13 minutes long.

Continuing with a second film on 16MM about the medieval period.
Life in a medieval city, 15 minutes long.
Oddly it has three different datecodes: 1963, 1965 and 1979 (or possibly 1959, since the same marking applies to several years, but since it's on polyester I would think it's from 1979).
It has turned somewhat but actually looks better than in the pictures.

Doug: nice pics. I was always curious about that Castle Films edition.

Dino: The Du Barry feature is very interesting. I like that early stuff,
and a sharp print to boot.

Lars: The documentaries and medieval educational titles are fascinating and worthwhile regardless of the film fade. Capsules of clips and hopefully not to become forgotten.

I wish that someone would tell the youth to throw away the portable tech equipment and get off Facebook. Mostly because it's a useless waste of time, and it also chokes people from communicating and thinking.

Michael: I have been struck by the unexpected high production value of these medieval films, it would easily fit in a really big budget film as background action and sets. It must have cost a pretty fair amount to do these films, but then there was a large worldwide market for them also, so they probably got their money back.

Now on to the third film about the medieval times.
The tournament of Bruges in 1392.
Here the whole city of Bruges is involved in a re-enactment. Everybody, even the spectators, are dressed in the fashion of the late 14th century.
Since this includes jousting, swordfights etc. there was really difficult to get any pictures, there is almost constant action. I took around 50 pictures and of those only 12 was usable.
The print is from 1976 and on SP, and the pictures do not do justice to the colors, they are almost perfect. It's 13 minutes long.

Are there anyone that knows when this was? My copy has the code for 1976, so it's prior to that, but when. Perhaps someone on this forum even was there? Please tell if so, or if you know anything about this, it would be fun to know.

I have a fourth film about the medieval period left, but I have yet not taken any pictures, but I will put them up as soon as I have.

Lars,

Indeed, I too was impressed with the realism in the film captures.
An exquisitely detailed treatment used for an educational purposes, is beyond compare. I wonder if the production company was aware of an onsite location to yield unsurpassed credibility to the stories.

I'm surprised that a 1976 stock code is printed on SP. Being that, try to obtain an 80-A filter. This is what I had been told by a fellow collector and that it should eliminate much of the faded color with SP stock film.

There was another thread where someone used a turquoise filter to extract the fade. However, it cut down on much of the projected light.

Hey I saw a great print of Wizard of Oz last night here is what the box looks like. I could not belive how the color held up after all these years this thing came out. I will try and post some pics some time this week. It blew my mind when she went from black and white to color it was fantastic. Wow what a find I got it on eBay at a steal of a price. I'm very proud to put it in my collection.  -
