Dino....According to Scott MacGillivray's excellent book on Castle Films ..Border Law was from a 1927 film , Border Blackbirds. and is fairly rare because Castle only issued it in 1942. Revenge on the Range was from the film of the same name, produced in 1925. Castle has them starring "Chuck Williams", who was really silent era cowboy hero Leo Maloney.

Most of this week I've been running 8mm compilations (mostly 800' but a few 1200' and a mix of mag and opt) and they've covered a lot of ground - railways, cartoon, travelogues, film & cinema etc. So tonight I watched a feature - 2500+' on a big Fumeo reel - on the Fumeo 9139 arc 300. I'd forgotten just how good 'Victor/Victoria' is! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Last full 600ft scope reel of "Mask of Zorro" (1998) and the optical sound feature of "Futureworld" (1976, Peter Fonda).

I tell you, I am still stunned as to how good the optical Super 8 feature looked, when super 8 was still largely in the "dark Ages" quality wise from the standard companies.

Who lost a girraff. A delightfull, if a bit trippy cartoon from my youth. And Dough and Dynamite. A very funny Chaplin flick. I finally opend a box of 100 or so misc 200 & 400' reels that I bought a year ago. It was a decnt buy of ex-library films. They're in pretty good shape especially considering where they came from.
Cheers,

after 30 years awaiting in a cold storage basement of an old shop i found yesterday a sealed print of the full length feature of
" saturday nigth fever",i only pay 20 pounds for the feature thinking that maybe was faded because the seller told me that the box was sealed but a little bit broken in the corners and have a very little wet smell so i offer that cheap price and he gladly take the money but when i opened it and after lubeit whit filmguard.. a surprise!!! a new print with rich colours ..
i watched enterely the last nigth and im glad that the colours hold so well after 30 years of storage in the shop,the codes in on the print revealed that is a kodak sp like almost all marketing films releases and was printed in 1981 so i think is one of the latest releases of marketing,the box is completely white and made of hard cardboard of good quality and have the original cover art from marketing films printed on glossy paper and stick to the front of the box.

[Big Grin] jajaja,yes Douglas i was the first surprised here,i dont expect too much because the seller told me again and again that they don want to sale something so old that he has in the basement of the shop i can convince him thanks god. Here in canary island ,especialy where i live in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria theres a lot of old shop that in the 70´s and 80´s selling films and equipment and i usually take a walk and ask to the now old owners if he has someting in the basement about super 8 and the most of times have films,cameras and projectors new in boxes,last week i found a shop called MARTELL that was an elmo and yelco distributor ,they show me the basement and i see at least 8 yelco 630 stereo el,i ask for a price and after a call to the owner they sell me 2 brand new at a price of 45 pounds each,i want to back looking for elmos,sadly almost all the old super 8 stores in canary islands keep the 80 per cent of the material new and sealed on cold basements but if you ask usualy you can find great surprises if you can contac to the owner of the shop.

Just watched HOUSE OF GAMES 1987 with Joe Mantegna on 16mm. Excellent colour - past the 84/5 cut-off to low fade - and sharp definition. All original leaders and not a splice in it. Needs a careful clean though, full of bits and pieces onscreen which have mean't a few fine lines. But good. The film? About the confidence tricksters in Seattle. Great. Acting a bit stagey. It was a stage play.

Actually I did once go to Gran Canaria in 1997 on a lads holiday with Escapades. Cant remember the area we went to but I remember the beach had a pile of large 'breeze blocks' in the water, sort of a man made island. If only I had known back then about the cine shops I might have searched for them. Anyway this is going slightly off topic.

On saturday evening (24th), my wife went to babysit our grandchildren, so it was an opportunity for me to screen one of the old oldies, which I hadn't seen for quite a while.

1937 Gainsborough production of "Oh, Mr Porter", starring the much loved Will Hay. Standard 8, black & white, sound.

Even though humour has changed somewhat over the years, I still found myself giggling and laughing at some of the railway antics they got up to, - to say nothing of the misunderstandings along the way.

85 mins. of delightful clean old fashioned fun. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Ah! David, you can't beat Will Hay, and Oh Mr Porter is one of my all time favourite films.

Last night it was "All Quiet on the Western Front" on my Sanyo PLV-Z1 video projector.

It's over 25 years since I last saw this and I'd forgotten just how powerful the battle scenes are. No fancy petroleum explosions to look good on camera, real high explosives and corresponding thuds on the soundtrack. The shot that sticks in my mind is where a French soldier is holding onto some barbed wire when suddenly there's an explosion right in front of him; the dust clears and, for a fraction of a second, you see two hands, severed at the forearm, hanging off the wire.

I love "Oh Mr.Porter". I saw this film as a young lad and it probably was the reason for my becoming a train driver. I've been doing it for over 30 years but happily I have not had to deal with gun runners and I haven't crashed a train. Many years ago a friend of mine who worked for the GPO in Basingstoke took me to a road that led to part of a farm and some fields. However this was the now long disused Cliddesden Station which was used in the picture. The platform was still there but the track had long gone thanks to Beeching's destruction of our railways. It was part of the Basingstoke to Alton Railway and it is at Basingstoke where "Gladstone" crashes at the end of the movie. It was a wonderful experience walking on the platform of "Buggleskelly Station". Alas the signal box and the level crossing were also no longer to be seen.

Paul.
