The Blackhawk Mutuals that are scored seem complete, including the front title cards that uses a much nicer font than the BOLD BLACKHAWK LETTERING -- ALL IN CAPS!

Hi Leon, hope all is fine there.
Not really my cup of tea, so I'm afraid I cannot help with is.
Good luck.

Last night we had a combination of shorts for kids such as Pups Is Pups (1930) on Super 8. According to Wikipedia, It is the first episode to feature the jazz-based background scoring that the Roach Studio comedies are known for. Some of the tunes included the "Hal Roach Happy Go Lucky Trio" (a.k.a. "Teeter Totter"), "Wishing", "Hide & Go Seek", "On To The Show", and "Confusion".
 -

Following Our Gang, we took a look at the German 200' Fantasia (1940) cut down, which everyone here loves. It was one of the first titles I got on Super 8 and it is still very repeatable or a nice edition to a screening at any point during the show. It has good color and the sound is very loud, the music by Tchaikovsky is mesmerizing.
 -

After the kids were in bed, it was time to watch our Super 8 copy of Alien (1979) which is faded but, apparently has an eBay estimated value of $200. [Roll Eyes] There are a lot of close ups in this cut down, a trademark of it's director: Ridley Scott. It's clear that the 20th Century Fox people put a lot of work into making this digest action packed, but still comprehensible. It's one of the better digests that I've seen.
 -  -

And finally, after some time in our collection, we put up Picture Mommy Dead (1966) on 16mm from the legendary Bert I. Gordon. This one has excellent LPP color with hardly any wear. I was lucky to find it in this condition as most of these are very faded and or worn. Don Ameche, Susan Gordon, and Zsa Zsa Gabor star...enough said!

I agree Gerald, "Alien" is on of the best edits for a digest!

I was able to really luck out on the Super 8 version of the 1942 RKO edited version of Fantasia (running about 80 minutes), which was only released at that time.

RKO felt that the original running time of Fantasia was too long and despite Walt's protests, released an edited version, mostly overseas. This was one of many things that led Walt to eventually start his own Buena VIsta company, as he wanted complete control as to what the audiences saw, and not some "hack" editor choosing what should be seen. I don't blame him.

Apparantly, someone had found a 35MM print of this that had been chopped up and (believe it or not) they respliced it together (talk about dedication!) and in most of it, you really don't notice the splicing too much.

I wonder if the person who chopped it, was the same person who re-spliced it together, thinking to himself, "Hey, I was only contractually obligated to chop. They didn't say I couldn't keep the pieces!"

At any rate, It's a wonderful find if for no other reason than the censored out material is in it, mainly consisting of the deleted "Black Centuarettes" footage in the "Rite of Spring" portion.

BOGART (A MAN CALLED BOGART)
Interesting account of Humphry Bogart life and quite a good/reasonable print from Collectors Club.

My Bolex SP-80, with a new bulb socket, held up for a 400' short: Long Fliv the King. This turned out to be a sound copy on Super 8 by Blackhawk. Everything was good. Hopefully, this machine has many full-features in it.

Gerald-

Great stuff!!

I have "Pups is Pups" super 8, and its one of my faves.

Those pictures from "Picture Mommie Dead" REALLY bring back memories. I remember seeing it on TV in the early 70's. It was so scary back then. Every time it came on, me and my friends would go around singing "The worms crawl in, The worms crawl out......" song for months [Smile] . Took me many years to remember the name of this movie.

Thanks to all.

James.

A screening that initially started out as a test ride for my projector turned into quite a great experience. Duel in the Sun, by abc Pictures on five 400' reels, has quite an ambitious story. Of course, I'd prefer the full feature, yet I liked this abridgment. The image and sound were excellent. For now, this is the best non-B-&-W film I have.

Can someone tell me why the color is so red? Why isn't it natural?

It's faded, simple as that. It looks to be Kodak SP browning.

Osi, I thought it wasn't fade because my The Great Train Robbery has film that looks like this too.

If it's the original 1903 "Great Train Robbery" then you probably have a sepia toned copy of "Robbery", which is a Black and White image given a nice brownish feel (on color film stock) to give it a vintage look. Believe me, the print you posted on here has brilliant vibrant color when first released, and there are some here and there that no doubt still do.

Thanks, Osi. I believe you. You know what, despite the fade I enjoyed Duel in the Sun. The colors are better than a copy of Saturday Night Fever I own. One thing both my color titles have in common is that sound is very good.

Yes, "Little Rural Riding Hood," I have that one too. My wife thinks it's sexist. I think it's great.

The Film I saw last night was SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER on 400 foot reel digest . It has a nice digest with good contrast, little fanding, and some nice color shots. Highlights are of all dynanimation scenes . It is the only Ray Harryhausen film other then ( Clash of the Titans )were there is some nudity. And were the creatures that Ray creates is not the only thing you want to look at.  -

Its been a while since I last used the GS1200, not a good thing to do. Anyway it ran like a "swiss watch" [Big Grin] and tonight we watched "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" on two Elmo reels 1/1200ft and 1/800ft. The Derann print was excellent really nice colour. I must admit that I have this movie also on Blu-ray, but watching it on Super8 with mono sound seems to me a lot better. [Smile]

Tonight I had a few friends over and we watched, with great anticipation, King Kong (1933). Here's how I'd set up the screening room.

 -

Sound on the first reel seems to be a bit poor. The picture was quite sharp though.

 -

Once the story moved to the island, the grandeur captivated the audience. There were a few smirks here and there at the tribal culture but nothing really derisive.

 -

Of course, in such films how can love be avoided. Of course, in tribal cultures how can the stereotypical sacrifice be avoided.

 -

 -

This was it! Kong arrived. The seller had assured me that this print is the uncut full feature. Watching Kong eat dinosaurs, and people, I think it is the full feature too. The violence in this film makes Peter Jackson's version feel like Finding Nemo. Speaking of oceans, when the Brontosaurus sinks the raft, it even felt like Jaws.

 -

I created another collage of Kong on the Empire State Building, but have accidentally deleted it. Sorry!

The six of us who attended liked it very much. My guests even suggested I charge a dollar or two in future. Somehow, it doesn't seem right. We here want more folks to know what film is like. They must know what movies were like. Films are probably best showcased for free.

Hi All,

Thanks Derann! [Smile]
